Shame on absent fans

WE often hear the ‘Best fans in Super League’ claim for the Wolves.
And as someone who travels home and away I would not argue with it.
But where were they for the play-off game with St Helens and Hull?
Little more than 10,000 fans were at the Saints game, and close to 3,000 of them must have been away fans.
The number of empty seats was the most shocking thing. All those season ticket holders who failed to show should have their tickets ripped up for next year.
If you can’t get excited for games like these then when can you?
I know what the replies will be – it is expensive and it is only weeks after Wembley and it doesn’t really matter.
But those fans who failed to show bear some of the responsibility for that loss.
If you fail to show for a game like this, you give up the right to have any opinion.
No doubt if they do get to the Grand Final or Wembley again next year there will be 20,000 glory hunters there again.
But rugby league is a year long game – not just for finals. Stay at home ‘fans’ – shame on you.
