Does anyone really know what the RFL may or may not do...
Point taken adam but the RFL wouldn't risk the court cases that would follow.
Great win for Rovers, very happy Robin tonight.
Hard to see Warrington losing a game. SL 4th last doesn't really deserve to be in this
The advantage of having clubs like Leeds and Warrington in the middle 8s is the big away support at the smaller championship clubs, like Batley, Fev, London or Halifax. In fact this is pretty much the best thing about the whole ridiculous structure.
Critical game next week, catalans at home to Leigh. Hoping to God that Catalans win that or they will have a very uncomfortable time ahead
Can easily see rovers coming top 3 as Catalans, Leigh and Widnes are poor.
If someone does get relegated this year and I would consider more likely than not, would the RFL feel vindicated and persist with the structure? To me it would only emphasise the need to go to straight up and down promotion and relegation.
Watching last nights game makes me realise how sloooooow NRL games are in comparison to English games.
Not sure it's that ridiculous, every week feels like a cup final for the promotion hopeful club fans!
That's four (and more realistically one or two) clubs out of the whole league structure.
Isn't it good for the champion teams to at least get some games against these types of clubs to test themselves and see the standard they need to get to. And frankly if they are finishing 9th or 10th then they can put up with some games against lower league teams instead to of going through the motions for another month or two
London hit another hurdle by drawing with Fev. Just made their task a lot harder in a week where HKR beat a SL team.
They're f**ked. As if they were a real hope anyway. They'll have to rely on results going their way and beat two SL teams or at least Rovers and a SL team.
They're capable of beating Widnes, Leigh, Rovers.
Unlucky to get the 2 points against Catalans and again this week, but there's only so many times you can get unlucky in this comp and still be in the hunt. Need to take a big scalp and can't afford to drop another gimme.
Au revoir Catalans.
They sure look done
oh dear catalans, bad loss they could not afford. Between this mob and the warriors i don't know who is more inconsistent or a bigger let down
They simply must beat Fev and halifax and then hope to knock off one of Widnes or Rovers to sneak 4th or 5th at this stage
If they do go down it could be an interesting championship in 2018 with the prospect of Toronto, Catalans and Toulouse! All of whom should be in super league for the sake of expansion!
Catalans have lost it as a 'team.' Too many individuals and no club identity.
What a mess. And another London loss too. Yuck
Next year we will complete our long held vision for Superleague:
London, two French clubs & Toronto
errr.. except this vision will be fulfilled in the Championship
