They're having a decent run at the minute but looking like a play off place is the best they can hope for. Good win away at NCEL Premier League Tadcaster in the cup the other day.

Yes. I can't see them taking top spot now though still possible but playoffs are pretty guaranteed.

I've been past the ground a few times in the last couple of days and have noticed that some of the very old signage above the turnstiles has been removed too, so things are clearly progressing :D :D

They've added the plaques people bought too.

Just been watching the preparations for the NRL games in Vegas… and the sliding in place of the pitch into the stadium…

I, for one, am really disappointed that Matt Ellis has not included a retractable pitch into his immediate plans!

Seriously though… the stadium in Vegas looks sensational!

It does and despite my natural instincts I can only admire the way the Aussies have staged these events.
If my memory serves they’re doing this for a minimum of 5 years and if they continue the way they’ve started it will no doubt grow into a must do week in Vegas for those in a position to take advantage.

The real acid tests though are whether it generates interest from the big US sports networks which translates into a lucrative contract. Secondly, whether it helps Rugby League in the US to grow and become a real force in the game in the years to come

Experienced the MKm suite yesterday and it’s the first time I’ve been to the ground since august 2022, I have to say we’ve been fully done over by the builder/architect, why on earth the bar, toilets and store room are on the pitch side of the stand is beyond me, the main suit is nowhere near the size I though it would be, would have expected it to be at least twice the size, with the ability to break it up with some temporary partitioning and is the norm with similar venues. Prices are fine and the experience was a good one, but it could have been so much more.
I can confirm still no hand dryers but there were paper towels, but no bin to put them in.
Food quality and drinks were good, the allocated seats in the stand were very comfy as well :thumb:
Bought a season ticket now for west stand as I’ll probs only make 5 or 6 games but at £100 with 7 months interest free credit it’s a no brained :thumb:

I got told yesterday that ME isn't happy with quite a few aspects of the new development and is looking to change things for the better and as we all know there is plenty more that needs doing to the remainder of the stadium too but he is clearly the man to do it, so, interesting times ahead :thumb:

Amazing hand dryers in the main toilets (A gate).

Hand-dryers are the new lightbulbs.
