We've played at Oakwell twice, once against Sheffield Eagles (which I attended) and once against Saints (which I wasn't able to make).

Similar price to Perpignan, five to six euros a pint on average.:)

Terrible idea. If not just for the fact that once again we are pricing out core supporters who cannot afford to go to the south of France twice in a year and have a family holiday e.t.c. There's plenty of palces they could take it in the UK to try and spread the game without taking it overseas.

One thing about it Jinjer, flights will be direct from most airports and shorter, hopefully a lot cheaper. Thinking about it now not a bad shout, after travel to stanstead, parking etc and a cracking stadium :THINK:

I tend to agree with you tbh but as a one off and it’s actually in France and not some pointless venue like Barcelona on balance I’ll go with it, but only once.

Not sure it would work to be fair, as would be very costly if going with families.

Also think logistic wise, if it were to happen, it would be better over a bank holiday weekend, but we know what then French Air Traffic Controllers are like on bank holidays.

Though on recent experiences over there, may pass on it, unless my hotel is near the stadium.
