Hopefully Wakefield 'we are now an established top five club' Trinity will lose their remaining games and take the dreaded drop. They should've been relegated years ago when licencing was brought in. How they got one with that shambles of a 'ground' is anyones guess.

After yet another of your incisive posts I've come to the conclusion you are Bill Murray, & I claim my £5.

You forgot the "blaming the Ref" stuff b.t.w.

Stop the right wing coup.

Wasn't it the last minute collapse of the crusaders that ultimately saved their bacon. Not that I'm looking to engage in Trinity bashing I hasten to add!

He's correct, is this yet another poster you intend to stalk and make snide comments towards because they post things you don't like? You're really sad at times.

I'm unsure why being a Bradford fan would be of relevance to the final round of Superleague franchising. What element of that franchising do I need to "let go"?

Anyway, it was a relatively widespread understanding at the time that Wakefield were to lose their superleague licence, but late in the day the Crusaders meltdown meant that they had a reprieve. If I'm mistaken about that then that's fine, I have no agenda against Wakefield.

My money a few weeks ago would have been on London to go down.

Hull kr though seem to be closer to the mix, which was a surprise a few weeks after their win over Leeds.
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.

That was the script taken by fans of other clubs and the media line building up to the decision but was rumour and suggestion rather than fact. After the franchises were announced someone at the RFL (I forget whom) said in an interview that Wakefield's bid was not the weakest. The media and fans of other clubs tend to ignore this and like to peddle the line that Wakefield only survived due to Crusader's demise (which conveniently suits their agenda).

HTH.

It is "Fifita" not "Fafita"

If you don't know the difference between "there", "their" and "they're" I might get annoyed.
