To me this game should have been at old Trafford before the grand final then a lot more people may have turned up and a great spectical for the game

It is a bit of a shame, the venue will not help supporters and players of both sides. Attendance is likely to be very low. Let’s face it crowds are generally low, Cas having best crowds with 1500 being great. Will not show up well on TV with a pretty empty stadium when you would think some crowd atmosphere would help the teams and promotion of the women’s game.

i can not see the Saints public flocking to this match, not many of Yorkshire fans look forward to the M62 journey on a Friday night , when or the chiefs at headquarters going to use some common sense or is this too much to ask ??

Two grounds spring to mind immediately that could have held this game and would have been far more convenient for both clubs - Dewsbury or Doncaster. Bearing in mind that there will probably be less than 5000 in attendance either would have looked less empty on TV than the TW Stadium.

Normally raining tho so would wreck the pitch for the proper players.

Shame about the venue more to this decision than meets the eye. 2 Yorkshire clubs playing a final in Lancashire. Should have been a post office road. But what do we know we're only supporter's. But tomorrow is another day or is it.

I’m told one of the reasons St. Helens was chosen is because that a number of the players need to be at Manchester airport for a flight straight after the game for the ladies tour.
Not sure on the logistics but with a clear run I’m not sure it would be much difference tbh travelling from Yorkshire

Kind of correct, it was due to be Sunday at Leeds, but the players fly Saturday so they brought it forward and headingley isn’t available. They wanted to put it on at a stadium that made it a spectacle, not sure I agree this is the TW, however the TW has some nice corporate facilities so I believe that’s probably the driver.

It’s not put me off, I’ll be setting off about 5 hoping to get there with time to spare to grab a bite to eat.
