They sure are and have been for quite some time.

Must be down to all those trophies they've been winning plus that world class arena they play in.

They play on a pitch not on an arena, probably the best pitch in SL as it happens :D

On paper, I would say Warrington are the team to beat this year. Then it will be between Cas, Saints and Wigan.

At the other end, luckily for Salford and Wakefield, London are terrible and will go down with probably the lowest points total in SL history
:lol: lucky for us eh :roll:

I think Wakey are spending closer to the cap than Carter makes out, think he/they like to play the underdog role. ATEOTD they have had three top 6 finishes in the last three years so that will attract some interest in their players but they seem to be keeping them and able to add more, that takes money to do that.

WRT to their 5th place finish last year, taking a closer look they were only 3 points ahead of a very poor Leeds team at the split and let’s be honest the others in those 5th-8th position basically gave up in the Super 8’s. That won’t be happening this year I think with the new system and 5th place being a playoff spot so a lot harder to achieve this year.


Well, Trinity get part of their funding (IIRC 200k) docked for the state of their ground and we dont have any marque signings and Carter to date has always been happy to say things as they are, even when we were deep in the financial mire.

However, there does seem a fair amount of disbelief from fans of other clubs, particularly those from clubs spending up to the cap and being bang average, which from a Trinity fans perspective is just hilarious :lol:

Pound for pound, Trinity are the best side in the comp :D

Eh, how do you get to that ?

Is it because we've finished 6th, 5th and 5th in the last 3 seasons and we no longer predict our imminent demise ?
Not exactly cocksure is it and if you ask prety much any Trinity fan, I can't see any predicting something better than last season and most would be delighted to make 5th again, which given the improving stock at Catalan and Huddersfield, would be an excellent sffort.

Having said that, EVERY club will want to try and improve on last season and why should Trinity be any different ?

because this year ITS YOUR YEAR!!! (you can have that chant now wakey fans ;) )

So Catalan are playing all of their home games straight up then and they still wont have 20 points after 13 rounds.
Do you fancy a wager for charity Jean.

Dunno about wakey, I think saints are starting to look a good fit for that template these days
