    Sure. There needs to be more though. A lot more like the number of kiwis at NRL clubs.

    It would then start to impact on Catalans attendances. Catalans get a lot of sponsorship on the back of Brits going to their games. Sponsorship that may be jeopardised by a Barcelona MW.

    There's a bank holiday next weekend,the spring bank holiday,end of May every year..and there's thousands of cheap hotels up and down the coast either side of Barcelona all a easy train ride away...

    Magic at the not camp is a absolute no brainer .....so won't happen lol..

    Maybe try a doubleheader next year then magic the year after...?

    I know it’s hard get an exact figure but does anyone know if the 10k from Wigan was at all likely?

    At the very least this needs to become an annual event but with a different away side every season.

    Could this possibly lead to a Barcelona RL team playing in elite 2??

    Barcelona are a multi sport club and it would be great to see them do it. However I don’t think there’s been any public discussion that this could actually happen.

    The entire concept was an advert for Catalan nationalism.
