The bookies aren't often wrong, and the second favourites for the Championship are Fev.

They must be wrong a fair few times during the course of the season as Fev were 4th favourites only a few weeks ago.

There's a lot of footie to be played yet......Leigh have their tails up.
Barrow, London, Fev, Toronto, Fax and the frogs....win all 6 of those and they're back in charge of their own destiny......
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:

London and TO have no chance of promotion, and neither do Fev or Fax. Toronto and Leigh have the potential, but it would need an implosion from a current SL team (aka Catalans) for that to happen.

At the moment I'd predict a MPG between Cats and one of Toronto or Leigh.

I have a feeling Les Catalans might get auto relegated .....
followed by an RFL announcemet of a 14 team SL for 2019 !

This has little to do with Leigh's chances of winning and more to do with their fans' collective optimism and willingness to gamble :IDEA:

The odds are set so that the bookies can make money and not on the ability of said team to win.
Of course, as the odds become more or less attractive or, a club looks nailed on to win something,more people decide to risk their cash.
