Think were safe regardless, we won't lose to Halifax, but realistically 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

Other clubs have had equal injury issues e.g. Hull and they haven't suffered anywhere near the calamatous season Leeds have had.


If Hull lose their final 2 games, that'll be 11 defeats on the bounce and 14 defeats from their final 16 games with their only wins coming against the 2 worst teams in the league: Salford & Widnes.

They're not in the Middle8s though, so at least it's not a calamitous season for them.

McDermott is going. I actually think he is more relaxed because of it, and seems to have let the shackles go. He apparently asked to finish the season, and that is what they agreed.

They like the other 4 - Giants, Widcats and Catalans have nothing to play for in the 8's none of them could have realistically made the top 4 and they players knew.

Sadly it is one of the downfalls of how the splits have worked out this year.
Your job is to say to yourself on a job interview does the hiring manager likes me or not. If you aren't a particular manager's cup of tea, you haven't failed -- you've dodged a bullet.

Might be calamitous for Radford though. Umbersard won't be best-pleased with him.

I think Hull expected to kick on from getting their Wembley CC monkey off their backs but they've just fallen apart. Lucky for them it didn't happen as soon as it did to us, or they'd have been in the middle 8's too. That would have made in interesting. The collapse at Warrington was one of the most gutless performances I've ever seen.
Leeds Rhinos? 8 for you, Leeds Rhinos! You go, Leeds Rhinos.

And none for Castleford Tigers. Bye!

Yeah, Trinity found themselves adrift at the end of 23 rounds, unlike last season where we could/should have made the top 4 and more teams were fighting for the top 4 right till the end.

Even though people mention that teams have nothing to play for, there is, £25k for every place further up the league you can finish from 8th up, which isn't to be sniffed at especially for Trinity. Thankfully we haven't put the cue on the rack and played some good RL and haven't let a bit of a frustrating season fizzle out. I say frustrating just from the amount of really close games we couldn't get over the finish line and we ended up losing by a drop goal or a last-minute try, which if we'd played a bit more clever could have at least got us another 3/4 wins. Generally, though the S8's to say we can't make the top 4 have been fairly good for us so far, winning 3 out of 5, just loses to Saints & Wigan, which has got us up to 5th. That's an extra £75k to £100k, depending if a team gets £25k for 8th or not.

I presume nothing i the way of prize money o the basis that the 8th placed team in the Super 8's gets nothing.

Basically if Leeds get a better result away at Halifax than Toronto do at home to Widnes, then for us not to be guaranteed SL after the M8's regular rounds Toronto would need to win at Leeds by a minimum of 22 points.

I'd say we are pretty much home and dry.
It's not how much talent you've got, it's what you do with it that counts.
