The Bulls's slide was almost unavoidable for a while before it happened due to their financial implosion. If we (Leeds) go down it will be entirely due to poor management of the playing side - coaching and recruitement.

I don't think SL would get rigged for next season to keep us in, but I suspect the loss of Leeds for a year would cause a rethink, especially if we didn't look like bouncing straight back up. IMO we're not a big enough sport to lose one of the genuinely big sides - losing Bradford hurt SL, losing Leeds would be a huge blow for the game as a whole.


"Losing" Leeds? They'd still be in the competition, just 1 league below the top table. It won't happen though.

Rubbish Leigh beat London 40-0 this season, one of 3 wins out of 3 v them.
On tonight's evidence unless they win at Salford next week, Widnes won't even make the MPG.
Well done London...

enjoy the shield final should you make it..... :SUBMISSION:

Nice to see your 23 travelling fans enjoy the win. PATHETIC EFFORT.

Read my signature Einstein........no doubt you'll bring more when you meet them next year n the championship, but the reality is that 23 or 24 fans....it make little difference the income of a fully pro club like leigh.......oh, hang on.......an ex-pro team like Leigh :SUBMISSION:

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:

Great way to kick off the qualifiers. London were worthy winners.

I agree. I thought they'd fade but they kept sticking with it.

London are now in with a real chance of promotion along with Toulouse and Toronto.

What a fantastic competition the Super 8’s are, why would anyone want to scrap it?

I had the same thought; I enjoyed them going toe to toe, but expected London to fade in the second half. Really impressive performance though - very worthy winners.

I thought it was a really negative decision from Widnes to go for the two points when they were 6-4 ahead. They should have gone for the jugular there IMO. Well done to London. I can see them travelling to Salford in the MPG now with Widnes relegated at 6th.

Keep it, scrap the idea of a £1m game and just go with top 4 of the qualifying 8's get into SL. It cannot them be labelled as pinning an entire season on one game and there is the possibility of 4 teams being promoted / relegated
