They will need to rely on home form again this year. Clearly there was a huge difference in standard between their two away games and their home game against Saints. They seem incapable of travelling and playing well, which is a pretty damning indictment of their professionalism.

On this form, albeit it's only week 3 of a long season, it's difficult to see anything other than a bottom four finish for a team which on paper should be better than that.
They didn't play well against Saints, they defended ok but didn't threaten a team with 12 men and the two tries they did manage to score were both dummy-half barges.

I'm all for reaching out to a wider audience with our game but not at the expense of historical clubs in the homelands.

I'd say 9th is a hell of a lot better than finishing 5th in the qualifiers having barely beaten two Championship teams and looking a million miles from winning a game at SL level.


But considering they went from top to 9th in a year then with that downward slope they were probably heading that way.

I agree. Given teams usually have to hit the 20 points mark to make the Top 8 then they'll need to be pretty much perfect at home (10 games remaining now) and that'll be a tough ask not to lose anymore at home even if they play better there.

They'd need to finish 4th or 5th in the middle 8's for the MPG. Are they good enough to even get that high?

That's not really how it works though is it? They were doing poorly, replaced their coach with McNamara and became much, much worse. I don't think there's any way you can defend McNamara here. Didn't he lose 8 matches in a row before getting the sack at Bradford? So that means in his last 16 regular season SL matches he's won 1 and lost 15, and the one win was against Leigh and needed a last minute try to do that. Absolutely dreadful.

If Catalans stop dropping the ball so much they could be alright, they have a few talented players. Can’t remember ever seeing so much dropped ball.


Wigan last Saturday, Leeds last Friday there's 2, SL has been like this every game this year so far
