Rugby league overkill? Four games in one day at Wembley & multi-game obsession

Post by josie andrews »

A growing trend in rugby league in recent years has been cramming as many games as possible in to a single day at a single venue.

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage. #18thMan

I think the RFL need to look closely at RU in terms of growing the women's game. They're still about 20 years or so behind in that respect

Simply down to costs of stadium hire I reckon. I agree it's overkill. Devalues it for all teams involved.

Felt the same when I've been to Magic; three games in a row can seem a bit too much of a good thing.
