    Public Transport - Northern Beaches bus services for NRL semi-final?

    OK as we are the home Semi team for Saturday’s NRL Semi (against the Sharks) are the NRL confirming transport options for the Northern Beaches (Sydney/STA buses) as they did last year and in previous years?

    See article below.

    One of the major problems with Allianz/Moore Park is a good direct (fast) public transport option from the Northern Beaches as parking is a complete nightmare. You pay to park in a car park and then get stuck in that car park for an hour after the game!!

    The NRL is a joke. Not only will nothing be done to get fans to the game from Manly/Warringah and Cronulla/Sutherland areas, but being Sydney's only game for the weekend, the NRL should be getting free/additional public transport arranged right across all of Sydney & encouraging all RL fans no matter who they support to come to the game.

    Swans and AFL did it on Saturday night.

    They sometimes take a day or two to work out on demand or public opinion !! So emailing/calling and tweeting to the NRL will help …!!!

    They ran these buses in 2011 for the game against Brisbane (Manly v’s Brisbane at Allianz/SFS).

    Also the same in 2012 for the game against Nth Qld ((Manly v’s Nth Qld at Allianz/SFS).

    So they surely must do the same in 2013???:mad:
