...coming up and even though it's only week 3, this is a "must win" if we are to make the qualifiers. Fev have won both of their games thus far with big second half showings, so we need to make sure we don't doze off for the....in fact, we shouldn't doze off at all!! Our superior fitness on what is forecast to be a crisp but dry day will see us in good stead, but this is a major test of our credentials........London by a single score :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:

CMG is right a really key game. As long as our injuries aren't too serious then I would back us to win by 6-10points

What do you reckon on injury front ?

Is there a chance the loan hooker had an off day ?

We (Fev) have finished strongly in our two games to date, including against full-time Toulouse on Sunday, and all our players bar Hock ( who is very much working his way back to fitness ans still some way off) have looked very fit, but this will be our biggest test yet. Our fans are more upbeat than for a while as our halves are the best we have had in years and our pack rolled Toulouse, but away from home and on the plastic pitch will be a different challenge altogether.

Should be a great game and after a few years of predictable results it's kind of good that neither of the two runaway favourites will be top of the league after round 3.

True...another London/Fev draw is possible...but think Toronto would be doing well to win by 35+ at The Shay.

Would love to see fax turn em over to be honest. At Barrow the conditions were a real leveller, but TWP were showing signs of the old Leigh tactics trying to bully, and some cheap shots.
For us, if we play like we did against barrow, respect possession, don’t give away free mtrs, home advantage should give us the points.

I meant this game being postponed, or abandoned with no result, and Leigh winning away at Barrow by 50+...... :wink:
