I agree. But Giants haven't really got it easier.
I reckon both Trinity and Giants need a win badly.

The Hull KR win helped them a lot but it isn't over yet.

Giants hopefully will see the return of a raft of first team players after the week off, and with the points difference London realistically have to win 3 more games than the Giants in the last 6 rounds

Not over no, but if the Giants beat Leeds next round, the Fat Lady is warming up her vocals

IF London beat Saints reserves today, things suddenly get very, very interesting.
Depending on other results, there could be just 2 points separating the bottom 5 clubs.

Is there a conspiracy theory here, in that Saints - a side already just about holding the LLS are deliberately "helping" London ?

I know they have an important semi final coming up but, with all due respect to Halifax and taking into account Saints utter domination of SL this season, making 9 changes for todays fixture being disrespectful of their opposition ?

Without reading too much into it I saw Councillor Box, Eamon McManus and Robert Elstone stood outside the Scarborough taps in Leeds talking about how much they like site seeing in London. They then shook hands and McManus and Elstone walked off towards the train station holding hands. Councillor Box was collected by his driver and whisked off in his Newcold sponsored Rolls royce.

With how tight the bottom half of the table is, Trinity are not the only club in peril and I doubt that the fans of KR, Huddersfield and Leeds will be too pleased with London being "given" 2 free points.
All within the rules but, not exactly "within the spirit of the game".
It shows massive respect to Halifax though and maybe the mighty Saints are nervous about next week :D

Someone forgot to pass the note to the saints players. They seem to be trying to win the game.

Saints have a tradition of helping the new up coming teams in SL, some years back we did our best to give bradford a helping hand. But even that spark of generosity could not keep a development area like Bradford in the top flight permanently.

However, there is a solution to this issue. We could sack all SL coaches and let opposition fans pick the opposing teams players. This would also help reduce overhead costs for all clubs.
We can be bold enough to make a stand and do battle for our views and beliefs. But we must strive to be mature enough not to resort to unnecessary personal attacks upon people with opposing views.

Seems the communique has arrived for the second half.
