After my genius predictions of last week :oops: , here's my guesses for the final week:

Leeds v Toronto. Leeds by 20 points
Salford v Toulouse. Salford by 20 points
London v Halifax. London by 15 points
HKR v Widnes. HKR by 30 points

Leeds 12 & +140
Salford 10 & +129
HKR 10 & +35
London 8 & +5
Toronto 8 & -3

Toulouse 6 & -20
Widnes 2 & -81
Halifax 0 & -165
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:

Not sure how Leeds will turn up this week. It’ll be pretty much same lineup as the u19’s are playing in the GF this weekend so won’t be used for Toronto.

One hand we could be relaxed and come up with an improved performance with the pressure off but could easily see Toronto winning if that relaxed turns into complacency. We were level with Fax yesterday at HT and pretty similar with Toulouse so could easily struggle vs a Toronto team desperate to win.

Could even see a scenario where Toronto win at Leeds narrowly but still miss the top 3 if HKR put a 20+ score on Widnes and jump Toronto on points difference.

Wouldn't Leeds need to win by 60 points to get that points difference

Wouldn't it be much fairer if all the games were at the same time?

All home wins

Wins by Leeds and London by a collective 28 points or more would see London hosting Toronto on the MPG.

London playing a day later is an advantage.

After my predictions last week (only 1 picked one correct winner) think I'll give it a miss this time.... :D

No, the numbers are correct, Toronto from 17 to -3 and London from -10 to 5.
