1 home game in our last 4 fixtures

So I'm guessing we have a lot of home games squished in the middle.
I hope so!!

Catalans away on a Friday, Toulouse away on a sunday. Not the best days for me but might be cheaper to travel.

£49 return from Stansted direct Friday 10th to Monday 13th. Might be doable.

Who knows, everytime we think it's over, boom, someone's in lockdown. Staying in lloret makes it more difficult as it's 2 counties to travel in.

Happy to see the Easter double header back, especially the two local games.

The uneven distribution of home and away fixtures is truly baffling. Come the end of the season when things may be getting tight at both the top and bottom, we have to play away the majority of times.

The loop fixtures sees us at home twice to Cats yet only host Leeds & Hull once.

Cas have been well and truly shafted by these fix(ed)tures.

I wish the club could put a calendar file on the website - just took me ages to input them into my calendar

I think the fixtures are pretty favourable.
Firstly, we don't play St Helens three times.
We do play Catalans three times, but we have them at home twice.
We only have to go to Toulouse once.
Th only real problem I can see is that we play St Helens and Catalans in consecutive weeks twice (rounds 10/11 and rounds 22/23).
These fixtures could be a lot worse - we could have Saints three times with two of those games away, and we have avoided any extra visits to France to play either Catalans or Toulouse.

we have to pander to the clubs who are tenants of football clubs and their needs have to be satisfied first. Wigan for example usually have a lot of home games for the run in as the DW has to be re-turfed every close season for the football club.

I agree couldn't really wish for a better set of fixtures even tho it's a tough finish at the end

Toulouse flights are nice and cheap from Gatwick, the only benefit of being a Cas fan down south!

For £47 return I think I’ll drive to Stanstead. Just looked at hotels - get something for about £40 a night. Sounds like a decent few days away to me :D
