I don't think its odd at all. I think you'll find a good majority of fans wouldn't worry about going if we were fielding a reserve grade team. You could make a case if it were a premiership game, but for a trial i think its a fair call. Its not like trials attract big numbers anyway. Diehards are usually the only ones who go to trials. Not saying thats a bad thing at all, because i like catching them if i can get there, but i think thats the truth
Probably a good reason to play the game in regional areas where they don't get any NRL games and will get a lot more fan support from the rugby league public in general

Half a fan?

Im sure plenty go just to try meet chicks, a drink with the boys....get away from the mrs & kids....people go for all manner of reasons

Myself....I see how the weathers looking, how Im feeling and if Ive worked that day

Everyones different for christs sake :brick:
I agree that people have different reasons but I do think it is odd if you based your attendance on whether certain players are picked. Any just my opinion sorry if it upsets you.

Yep and I stand by both of them. Who doesn't go to a game because player x doesn't get picked?

Plenty of people when we're talking about a meaningless trial. Does it make them less of a supporter? No

If it is so meaningless just don't go. There's no drama... It shouldn't matter whether say Robbie Farah gets picked, if it's a meaningless trial his inclusion shouldn't be the catalyst for you to go.

Wether you agree with it or not, its only natural that the crowd will be much smaller without the big names. So maybe you don't take it into consideration, but plenty obviously would

You are talking about fans in general here, arent you?

I don't think we're as opposed as you think we are. I totally agree that yes it's a trial and yes if we pick a second string side you might think about it. My point was if you're worrying about whether certain players are picked. Anyway I'm sure it's not worth the forum space it is taking up.

No I'm not that interested in trials to be honest. Form is very misleading and the whole thing to me is a bit of a muckaround. Nothing matters until the comp starts...

I'm gearing up for round 1.

Seatown....definitely
Gosford...no, but would love to go....still recall going there in '04 and seeing a couple of future superstars in action....one B Marshall and the other Heighno. Same in '05......Taniela Tuiaki at Mollymook.
My advice to anyone that can make it but still undecided...GO! Everyone that goes will be on here talking after the game about any number of young blokes or new buys that impressed them. Don't worry about who or who not is playing, or the result....just enjoy the occasion!
