The race for the Championship top 4 is really tense. Looking at the remaining fixtures the only way I can see Leigh breaking into the top 4 is if Toronto and Toulouse win all their remaining games, specifically the ones below. How ironic that some on here are likley to be backing those two clubs for the next four weeks.

Toulouse v London
Halifax v Toulouse
Toronto v Featherstone

Current table
Toronto 35
Toulouse 28
Featherstone 28
Halifax 27
London 26
Leigh 24

It won't register my attempt to vote for some reason. I would have voted Toronto, Toulouse, Featherstone and Leigh.


As Toronto are already guaranteed to make the top 4 do they really need to be in the poll though?

Making an assumption that the top 6 will beat their bottom 6 opposition when they play them, and Toronto win all their remaining games, then the only way that Leigh maybe don't make the top 4 is if 4 out of these 5 games finish with...

- London beat Toulouse today
- Fax beat Fev tomorrow
- London beat Fax
- Fev beat London
- Fax beat Toulouse

... in which case Fax will be 2nd on 33 points with the other 4 all on 32 points. So, down to points difference for 3rd to 6th - with Leigh quite likely to have overhauled the others given the assumption that they win all 4 games against bottom 6 opposition. A different result in one of these games means someone finishes on 30 or 31 points (and 6th place), in which case it's Leigh and one other team on 32 points.

32 points is likely to see any team in the top 4, with only an unlikely set of results resulting in anyone missing out on points difference.

Of course, if any of the top 6 slip up against bottom 6 opposition, or if Fev somehow manage to win in Toronto then this all changes.

Still think Leigh will get in. Given the amount of games the other sides have against each other. Be tight though.
Hull KR the pride of East Hull.

Clickbait thread.....well done, I clicked!
We already have such a poll started by another poster (sic)
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:

The original post here was actually fairly sensible, other than the referral to Leigh, when it turned into the same old troll post. Other than Toronto, Leigh are probably most likely to join them in the top 4 given the remaining fixtures (especially with TO failing to beat London today). Fax need to win 3 from 4.

Why are you so concerned whether Leigh get top 4 or not? (you are obviously worried), you are really obsessed with Leigh aren't you?
If Leigh do get in that top 4, then Toronto will have the shock of their lives,because Leigh and the other two will step up, and all the 4 Superleague clubs will put them to the sword. :SUBMISSION:

The 2 polls ask significantly different questions: one asks 'who do you think will make it (Top 4)' and the other 'who do you want to be promoted'............

No, they are identical.

I hope no team gets promoted, none deserve it. Back to franchising for me, leave the minnows to flounder.
