Play the kids. We need to focus on the league. Cup is just a distraction. We lose and we can rearrange the Sheffield game for when the next round is played..

Agree with bosty, rest up those that need resting, give a couple of the kids a run out. Think our priority is the league, a win would be nice but would not be fussed if we lost, but if we do lose at least lose competitively.

..or phone up the RFL with a dodgy French accent and ask if we can be excused the hassle of the Cup?

The decision to allow the French to opt out is looking like a good move by Toulouse as they could well have been up against a stiffer team again this coming week, rather than a week to lick their wounds and prepare for the trip to Swinton, which will see their confidence sweep back....
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:

we should opt out and if we use a Canadian accent it would be a sure thing.

How right you are. Double standards from the RFL. It should not be allowed to happen next season.

Does anyone actually know the rules of the Challenge Cup? It’s not something I have looked into, does it say anywhere as a team in the pro league set up that you have to compete in the cup comp? It might actually be the cup is opt in With the assumption each season that all pro league teams are opting in.

Leigh certainly on a roll, 130 plus points scored in their last 2 outings, next week could be a car crash for broncos if they are not careful. Was thinking about going up but maybe go watch York and Catalan instead think it could be a closer run game.

Apparently, they are not members of the English RL, so can opt in and out of competitions. Perhaps, as they are just 'guests' they may not be allowed promotion to SL? :wink: Of course, they may still opt out of the Middle 8's, if the opportunity arises? :wink:

Oh, and beware of fielding a weakened team - I'm pretty sure there are rules to cover that, should a 'member' club do it!
