Even with Finn they look like they have zero confidence. They’ve got us and the Rhinos at home and are then on the road for some really tough matches. Ben Black’s coming back to haunt them, they’ve had 7 years in SL on the back of a dropped ball so about time they went down.

No idea what you're on about. The dropped ball by Blacky was in the Northern Rail semi, Widnes didn't get "promoted", they got into SL through the dodgy franchise system. So karma if they'd get relegated anyway.

Brilliant watching that tonight. These arrogant SL teams think we're easy beats, but I bet the whinos are bricking it now. Come on Toulouse!

To be able to apply for SL back then you had to either have won the NR cup or reached the grand final if I recall correctly. Without the said incident they would not heave even been able to apply for a franchise. The rest I agree was a big fix.

ARE YOU LISTENING? Ben Black's dropped ball had nothing to do with Widnes being "promoted" :roll:

Totally disagree, Norman. Widnes were getting a franchise regardless of "what went on on the pitch". That's why I dispise them. And no way were there 3.5k there tonight. More like a grand.
