    …i dont mean to sound negative, but this is hardly news? I would have thought they would have showed up anyway? Equally maybe they havent in previous years, due world cups and stuff

    People that didn’t know they were going to be there now might head out to one of the BDS’ to watch them. Any press is good press.

    NPS/BDS make announcements like this pretty much every year, and they rarely live up to it. My virtual £10 says we will not be seeing them at 4 rounds – a couple maybe.

    “£10 says we will not be seeing them at 4 rounds – a couple maybe.”

    yeah, every year this is announced some where and they show up one or two rounds.
