Just be thankful you don't have our council. Who do nothing but poop on us and produce soundbites to say that they are not.

I always wonder if having a unhelpful council is a Yorkshire thing - nearly all the teams from the dark side seem to have managed to get themselves into shiny new stadia - Leigh, Salford, Wire, Saints etc - Meanwhile in Yorkshire - Wakey, Cas, Bradford, Leeds etc still playing in old fashioned grounds.

It is a crass effort by the club to try and mobilise what is in effect a bunch of clueless fans whose input will be an embarrassment in the vast majority of cases.

Tetley Field in Meanwood (bordering Weetwood) is green belt anyhow and a local beauty spot hosting precious local wildlife. I expect the council to reject the planning application in due course.

I've been on the lookout for volunteering and conservation projects which would interest me greatly. Think I'll make contact with the group who are organising the campaign against the planning application to see if I can be of any assistance.

Bollox to the club. It's a privately owned concern anyhow and can go do one.

The cricket side is. In terms of the tourist pound, the rugby side is an absolute irrelevance.

So the application gets rejected And if the club has no other options ,how long could the club carry on spending money keeping the Southstand safe?

I would suggest over a year the rugby attracts far more people from outside the city than the cricket especially in year Headingley doesn't get a test match.

How much do they spend outside the ground?

I'd wager - although I know you don't like that kind of thing :) - international cricket brings in much more money for the city's hotel, bar and restaurant trade than a season of away fans coming to Rhinos games does.

Classic GH. Renew now, for a more expensive part of the ground, even though you don't know whether we'll be playing Wigan or Whitehaven.

I don't think it matters to some people, there's no harm in this.
