They'll be lucky if they can muster a club /team together for the start of the season no matter which league they start in. Theyll be worse off than Bradford were
Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

I have no sympathy with Leigh and am 100% on the players side. Leigh offered the players the contracts, in which there was no promotion clause or top 4 finish clause. The players will have mortgages and bills to pay, why should they give up their contract? It’s a short career.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but if the contracts of the two players involved would take up 40% of the budget, what’s he’s saying is they can in fact afford to honour the contracts they signed, they’re just going to hack off their nose to spite their face and choose to go bust as some sort of blackmail to welch on their commitments?

Leigh will be top . Great turnaround.

Leigh will not be top. Once Darcy Lussick finds his feet the Toronto Wolfpack will start to tear pieces out of the opposition packs.

Leigh will even find it very hard to make the top 4, given what Toronto, Toulouse, London, and Featherstone are capable of..

The Championship is the right level for Leigh and Featherstone. It would be great if Toronto, Toulouse and London all gained promotion. However I think only Toronto will gain promotion (if Super League 2019 stays as 12 clubs) with only a small possibility of either London or Toulouse joining them in 2019.

Jean and myself were spot on with our predictions (ok Toronto didn’t go up) despite the ridicule we faced through the year. I guess there’s a lesson to learn, respect other people’s opinion or it could end up biting you on the backside.

Rhys Evans & Kevin Larroyer.

p.s. I knew you'd reply Mr Sinfield, but I'm not biting. You're not worth another 7 day ban. :SUBMISSION:

40% of the 200K that we'll get from the RFL funding. That is all we are going to spend on players for next season (allegedly).
All the other players accepted 'pay offs' or signed for other clubs. Kevin Larroyer should be able to find another club, but Rhys Evans (on 80K a season) was injured constantly, but has a 3 year deal.
Derek Beaumont has helped create this 'mess' but he's not prepared (this time) to bankroll us out of it. It happened to one of the biggest clubs in Bradford Bulls, so the fact that it is happening to Leigh Centurions is hardly 'earth shattering'.

Trolls gotta troll I suppose
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:
