Imagine if London weren't there. It would be one hell of a finish to the season. As it is they're going to save everyone's blushes and go down.

Yeah, looks like London are gone - but you just think there will be another couple of surprises before it’s done and dusted. Points difference has done them.
Fat blokes in the mud, flat caps, bogs that drain pi55 directly onto your boots - Now it's all 'Big Ask', 'Arm Wrestle', 'Collision' 'Contact' 'Facials' 'Upper Body Strength' 'Big Units' 'Scooting from Dummy Half' 'Energy Levels' 'Laying the Platform' and 'T-R-Y'.

It looks like the Wakefield v London game at the end of the season will be the decider

I'd be more worried if I was a shudds fan, especially if Catalans are still fighting for a top 5 place.

Considering the amount of points all the teams at the bottom are on it’s not exactly saving blushes more London doing incredibly well to keep up and turn a mid-table battle into a relegation fight.

Well after this weekend if anyone thought Leeds still had a chance of slipping through the trap door thats pretty much done and dusted now especially if the RFL have any balls Catalan should be struggling to name a team.
Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry. Worry never fixes anything.

Why is it a shame? London have done quite well so far this season,but if it isn't enough, then there is no such thing of it's a real shame.

Catalan will be so short they’ll have Charles Aznavour at 7.

Apologies if you are under 50

Agree.
We've punched well above our weight this year and have 16 more points than anyone expected us to have, but that's more to do with how far the "rest" have fallen, rather than how brilliant we've been.
It's not done and dusted just yet though, as we play Leeds, HKR and Wakey as well as schizophrenic Catalans and an Jekyl & Hyde Castleford, and 3 wins might just well keep us up. All the loss v Salford did was confirm we wouldn't make the play offs this year :wink:
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:

If you can pull that off,then it will be more than well deserved.
