It is looking more and more likely as each round of the Championship goes by.

London have certainly started like a house on fire. Many people thought during their last season in Super League that going down and pressing the reset button might be good for them in the long term. Things are going well so far and it's good to see they have homegrown players in the squad.

Leigh are obviously performing well below where they should be with their squad, I expect Jukes will go and they will come back strong.

It's too early to tell anything, I think the biggest factor will be the health of the super league squads come the middle 8s. At full strength, any combination of 4 from the bottom of SL would be strong favourites to stay up.

It’s possible but unlikely.

The thing that Bazza fails to mention is that Toulouse have beaten the teams sitting 9th, 11th and 12th in the league with the 10th placed team in France this coming weekend.
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:

You are obviously correct. I set this thread up as a marker. I will revisit it in 10 weeks to see if this early trend has continued.

London are thin as a squad. Lose Samut & Api and they will struggle.

One of those teams was the favourites to finish top of the Championship. It doesn’t matter who you beat, it still gets you 2 league points and the league doesn’t lie.

It doesn't surprise me how London have started when we played them in a friendly they looked very good
