If Huddersfield play like they did today for their remaining games they are gone. Negative game plan from minute one also, terrible. We weren’t brilliant by any stretch of the imagination, but we could still be playing till next Sunday and Hudds wouldn’t score. Can’t see where a wins coming from them from what I’ve just watched.

2 of their last 3 games they have been nilled.

From a Wakey perspective, it's all about the games in the next round, as if Catalans beat Hull KR and Leeds beat London, Wakey can't be caught by the loser of the Rovers and London game.

The biggest worry for Rovers and Hudds might be that Wakey should have nothing to play for on the last day, when we play London.

I said a few weeks ago that the last game between Wakefield and London may have an impact on another club, depending on who needs the points, and who's already safe.

Three club still on 18 points. I maintain my thought that 20 points isn't enough this season. You need 22 to be safe.

I'm not sure that's right because of your fixture with London. Mathematically, you're right, but form and points difference would suggest otherwise. For Wakey to go down, you and London would both have to win two out of the last three and Huddersfield one but improve the points difference.

Mathematically, if you and London win the next game, a team might need 24 to be safe (I think), but Huddersfield have a very tough run in. It's easy to wonder whether Tony Smith had the right idea in treating your game with them as just another game. Huddersfield treated it like a cup final, but their form since is what a cup-winning side normally goes through after Wembley.

Points difference will be huge. At the moment it’s:
Leeds -34
Wakefield -109
Huddersfield -175
Hull KR -233
London -251

It may still come down to points difference but, either London or KR will pick up points when the 2 clubs meet on the 8th September, potentially making that club safe.
However, it's equally possible that this will go to the last weekend of the season, with all 4 clubs needing to win to avoid the drop and still just about possible that Leeds could be dragged back into the dogfight.

Certainly KR v London is massive.

Something else which may well come into play is, the performance of those clubs that are safe and any squad rotation going on in the clubs who are in the play offs, who will be concentrating on having their best 17 ready for the play off games, rather than necessarily going all out to win on the last day of the regular season.

Twists and turns aplenty still to come and this is all without the contrived nonsense of the 3 x 8 structure :shock:
