There were 51000 there so that wouldn't fill Wembley and anyhow who cares if Wembley is sold out?
Personally Iíd much prefer the atmosphere in a full 40,000 stadium than a half-full 80,000 one. I get that itís great for small clubs to get to Wembley but it doesnít seem to have the mystique it used to have.

Agee with that.
When I went to the old Wembley in 1997 the place had an aura of magic and history. Watching my team walk out of the tunnel I had the feeling of all my childhood Christmases rolled into one.
In 2013 the new Wembley felt like going to Stadium MK Sad

Wembley is a business. It has to try to turn a profit. So nothing will change.

Itís also the highest grossing venue in Europe.

Bit odd that the Rugby League Challenge Cup Final was held in London given the game is predominantly played in the North of England.

It gives the fans an opportunity to watch their club in the semi final. There's around 36,000 for each team and no other stadium in England can offer that many.
