Who is going to drop?


Thanks for compiling the fixtures! :)

I think points on the board are crucial at this stage. One big performance each could be enough to get Wakefield and Hudds over the line. Like the rest of the strugglers, they aren’t very good but they do have 6 goes to deliver it. A battering at Saints next time out could just about bring Wakey’s points difference back into play vs the bottom two, but really they and Hudds are effectively three points clear of us and London.

A lot will depend on a few key fixtures within the group - and, as the season winds down, what other opponents have to play for. For example, our final game at Salford looks better for us if they’re already certain of being in or out of the play-offs.

At some point I still expect Leeds to remember they are Leeds and win a couple more - but i’ve felt like that for a while and time is running out.

We (Hull KR) are at least are willing to admit we’re up against it this time. If we can stay positive, without burying our head in the sand, we’ve got a chance, but Smith has a job on to sort our psychology as much as our play. In contrast London seem to have plenty of bounce. Loser of our game against them goes down would be my guess at this stage. And that might come down to injuries to key players, and rub of the green. The tension at Craven Park probably wouldn’t help our cause, so being at home will be a double-edged sword.

On a side note, i’m generally in favour of P&R, but to have nearly half of SL players livelihoods hanging by a thread isn’t great when we’re trying to support better mental health. I think the cancelling contracts on relegation thing needs to be looked at again, and at least softened. For example, a % cut on sliding scale for higher earners.

Will be interesting to see what lineup Saints send to Leeds the week before the CC Final.

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:

Wakey & Hudds offer the least to the league but seeing Leeds go would frankly be hilarious and "sir" Kev would have done a fantastic job of destroying such a well run outfit.

Probably will knowing us. Like I said in the Leeds/Hull match thread they’re actually a few on the Leeds board that don’t think we’re too bad and are in a much better place than we were before Sinfield took over, the level of delusion is strong. Others are either blaming Hetherington who isn’t even responsible for the on field matters now since Sinfield came in or blaming Agar who is just another fall guy for Sinfield. Anything but question the real problem and that is Sinfield.

We’ve had over 12 months and played 36 games since he came in and we still don’t have a full time top quality head coach in place at the end of it. Took him 4 months to appoint one and fell out with him within 15 games and again a lengthy gap of not finding another one. Other clubs don’t have this problem hiring a new head coach yet Sinfield seems to make it a lengthy several month drawn out affair and then got it wrong when he did.

He's probably guilty of believing the praise from the South stand and wondering just where his Knighthood went.
Furner needed more time, plus 3 decent forwards, to have any chance of competing.
In a cruel plot twist, it looks like Trinity will probably help Leeds avoid the drop, unthinkable in the early part of the season but, close to a racing certainty now.

You certainly have, like Gotcha who is Leeds own ‘Mr Deluded’ who reckons you’re way better than your league position suggests. Or others who reckon your roster is way better than bottom of the league, but how many of that roster get in to other SL teams? Not many at all.

And Peacock, disaster seems to follow his appointment

London will go down, but will fight all the way.

They would down already if Saints didn't rest players in their two home games.

London will go down, but it'd be nice if we sent Huddersfield and Wakey down with em. Crap clubs.
