To be fair, even a few short years ago the crowd used to turn on the players a hell of a lot more than the grumbling that's gone on this year.

I think that’s pretty much how it will stay although the Salford London game could be interesting, I think we’ll beat Halifax but not by a huge amount which with our points difference should see us safe then we can just forget about this nightmare of a season.

I will add I really wanted Toronto to come up to Super League but I really don’t like with how they play, it could be me but they seem to play with a misplaced arrogance but without the skill to back it up, whereas Tolouse and London are a joy to watch so I’m hoping one of those make it up

I know what you mean re Toronto, I don’t think there’s any coincidence that Leigh used to play in a similar manner.

Widnes are down, I can’t see them winning either of their last 2 games. The top 3 will stay the top 3, the next 3 will be remarkably close. If I had to guess I’d say London will miss out on the MPG but I could be wrong. Obviously home advantage in the MPG is always a benefit but this year it’s magnified with the teams involved. All 3 of London, Toronto and Toulouse would benefit hugely from being at home in that game, so it makes 4th place massively important.

Unless Salford and Hull KR throw their games on the Sunday v Toulouse & Widnes knowing that Leeds have beaten Toronto and they could potentially knock Toronto out. The joys of playing two days early.

Could see London, Toulouse, Toronto and Widnes all on six points and down to points difference for the MPG.

That combined with a Leeds win at Fax, would see us safe, and start the string of announcements.
It's not how much talent you've got, it's what you do with it that counts.

Agree that Widnes could do a job on Toronto. Truth is, for all the hype TWP have looked pretty average. And while this applies to every team in the M8s, it means that anyone can win most of the games.
"The problem when you play Leeds is that they are a huge 'confidence' side. If you get on top of them, they will cower and go away, but when they get in front their chests puff out and they start whooping as they make tackles. " (Jon Wilkin)

Think were safe regardless, we won't lose to Halifax, but reailacally we only had to beat 2 ot the 3 other super league sides to be safe, even if we did slip up to Toronto, which we won't, they are simply Leigh 2015 mark 2
