London by the odd score.....Leeds have been terrible all season and if london can get quick PTB's and Mr Kendall hasn't read the RFL Memo about "keeping leeds up at all costs" then I see this as a game where the winner will avoid the MPG and go straight into SL....BUT......If it is reffed like the last Leeds game then I see Leeds winning by a country mile.

2,800 gate, 22-18 to London :PRAY:
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 Wakefield 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:

I think this will be your best ever chance of beating Leeds I’m not sure what would be the best result personally for my side as we have Leeds next

I expect Leeds and HKR to finish in the top 3.......leeds losing to us :PRAY: would only be a blip for them, but a massive step fr London (and UK based RL in general).....our kids are starting to come through and player development in the capital is better than at some heartland clubs.

I remember reading somewhere a few years back that there are more junior teams in the London area than the whole of the northern heartlands

You've probably answered this before but would you want London to be promoted?

I think Salford look a good bet for top 3 now. Specially as they have the 4 championship sides still to play.

Then it could be any of the rest. I fancy Leeds as they have the home games vs Toronto, Salford and Hull KR.

After that who knows. Would love London to come back up but we will see.

Being the best team out of the 8, Leeds do not need and do not get help from officials. It's all in your head.

Not under the current owner, no.

Why would I need an excuse? the 2017 SL champions v little old London....should be a hammering, but Leeds needed plenty of assistance from the man in the middle last week v Toulouse......SL couldn't afford to lose 15k fans every fortnight....

The Rfl conspiracy theory will be rolled out evertime leeds play, and get a 50/50 go there way. Its pathletic.
