Is anyone on here from Norfolk or at least East Anglia?

you and me both but thought I'd ask the question. Boston isn't too far and on the way to Wigan, providing I go A17 way

A friend of mine, who isn't on this forum unfortunately, is a big Wigan fan and he lives in Dereham.

Need to start up a Wigan Supporters Club (Norfolk Branch)!

I lived in Dereham for a while, just outside Norwich now. Trying to get mates into Rugby League too. Not sure there's a demand for a supporters club here but would love there to be one

I grew up in Peterborough, which is on the edge of East Anglia/East Midlands. We used to get Anglia TV, anyway. :)

I live in Rutland now, so 20 minutes from Peterborough.

There is an embryonic amateur rugby league club in Rutland that was set up last year. Don't think they've had many games yet though.

I'm currently in the process of turning as many people as possible from the dark side (union) to league. It's surprising how many people haven't watched it, but when they do they really enjoy it and quite a few have said how much easier it is to watch than union - and how relentless the action is. Took a couple of friends to the Good Friday game, and they loved it!

I did the same for the Leeds game a couple of weeks ago.

I could have picked you up on the way through on Good Friday! :D
