I have to agree. Fourteen points should be enough.
I think home games will be crucial to our survival. We need to make Trailfinders a fortress.The fact that we have an artificial pitch, which a lot of teams dislike, could be a help.

Certainly avoid 2014, particularly as I attended every home game except Leeds which we won!

home is key I agree, any away win will be a bonus!

Yes 2014 was grim. We were lucky that we got that win and that Leeds took us lightly.I think they had one eye on the Cup Final. However if I remember that we were down in the first half and came back, we managed to hang on to win.
Not a good way to bow out of Super League.

The team had some decent players who went on to better things. We just seem to leave it to late to prepare

Hence why I hope we get our signings done early so we can get ready as a squad.

London and Salford will certainly be the bottom two clubs, coin flip for who goes down.

Well, Sir Kevin Sinfield. Are you Garry Schofield in disguise?
How well are your Leeds OAP Rhinos going to do then?

Local schools! No!

Why? Getting kids to cross a couple of roads to come to a game is one thing, but stretching out into bus/tube journey isn't going to cut it

All london RL playing schools!

...nope, because the "parents" have shown what happens even when the kids play on the main pitc....they bail staight away and don't hang about for the main game......this is what has happened since we first reached out to the kids and it will always happen as it is eating into the parents weekends. Do it local and the kids can walk home.

Engage with all the ljl clubs better

Been tried and tested and failed.An example would be the Hoists who are only interested in the social aspect of the game and who head to Belushi's afterwards, because they are sponsored by them. The only way to get clubs like that to come to the party is to sponsor them..........

The teams who finished bottom in the previous seasons are listed below:

2018 Widnes 6 pts 14 SALFORD
2017 Widnes 11 pts 12 LEIGH
2016 Huddersfield 12 pts 14 HKR
2015 Wakefield 6 pts 17 SALFORD
2014 Broncos 2 pts 21 WAKEFIELD (BRADFORD ON 10 WENT WITH US)
2013 Salford 11 pts 12 LONDON
2012 Widnes 12 pts 12 CASTLEFORD
2011 Crusaders 8 pts 10 WAKEFIELD


In Red are the teams and points that finished 2nd to bottom 112/8 = 14 points. 7 wins (as others have said) should do it, but we need to make sure that we win more than we lose at home to stand a chance.

The defensive coaching is going to be key to us staying up. Concede on average 20 points or less a game and we're top half of the table, concede less than 30 and we should scrape it, but a couple of hammerings and it becomes twitchy bum time.
As for 2014.........no side will ever be that bad or disinterested again (unless they hire a certain administrator) :D

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:

Local schools playing rugby league! Name em! There are no local schools in Ealing playing rugby league.
Closest one is Uxbridge, and they don’t have a local junior club to play at.
