What’s people’s opinions. Personally I’m not a fan of the idea for different reasons.

Although it may be enjoyable for players and fans (I may even go as I didn't go to Milwaukee), it's another gimmick right from the endless RFL gimmick repository. Fiddling round with baubles and shiny things whilst not addressing the slow death of the pro game in the UK. I can imagine Karl could not contain his excitement.

What’s not to like, show casing rugby league in Vegas. A lot of feedback from the Nrl teams was very positive, when they played in Vegas. Am all for it,

The only way I could justify spending many hundreds of pounds to attend a rugby league match in the USA is if I made it part of a holiday, and as I can't think of many places more tacky and awful than Las Vegas to visit for a holiday, then needless to say the cash will be staying in my pocket. As a general observation, the powers-that-be should be more concerned with finding ways of getting fans in this country to fall back in love with RL, rather than going down the gimmick route yet again and shmoozing the Americans.

NRL would already be doing this with or without us as i am pretty sure they are in a 5 year deal for games in Vegas. All we have done is tag ourselves onto an already existing event. Good forward thinking by Radlinski to send across an email and throw super league's hat in the ring.

I've booked to go this morning. To each their own, I've always fancied vegas as i like a flutter so to tie it in with a match sealed the deal

I can see this from both sides. But for me. I see this as a net positive for the team and for the british game.
We become a bit more attractive again to possible superstars and players who wish to come and apply their trade at warrington. We are one of the teams they come to when doing these experiments. We always have led the way. Whether it was America in the 80s. The games we took on the road in the early superleague years. Or Vegas this time.
This is a net positive for warrington and the game (of handles well(
