The powers that be probably knew that Saints were going to win the shield with three quarters of the season remaining so they arranged the Hull KR v London and Wakefield v London to make Super League XX## more exciting than any other.

Absolutely HUGE win and not too many saw that one coming.
If KR were to win in France and London beat Leeds, both of which could happen, the relegation dogfight will intensify further still,
The thread title is absolutely right and we are in this with a balanced (almost) fixture program, without the "every minute matters" nonsense of the past few seasons.
Just to turn up the heat a little more, I think that London will beat Leeds tomorrow.

Well that's the Rovers portion done.

Just need Leeds to flop against London now to leave 4 joint bottom.

That leaves Wakey v Wigan to decide whether it'll be 4 joint 2nd or 5 joint bottom...

Strong competition all over the table (apart from top spot, which has the biggest margin in history!)

I'd agree standard gets worse and worse, is a close competition a worthwhile trade-off for low standards? No

If you are a giants or rovers supporter you will be probably wishing that not only do Leeds win but win big and damage Londons points difference out of site, especially Hull Kr whose point difference is very close.

I actually think London may be targeting the Hull kr game as that could be the million pound game for both of them, and then hopefully beat a Wakey side with nothing left to play for. I think it will be between Kr and London, I think Huddersfield will find a win and think Leeds will beat London and one other anyway, and as they have the superior points difference over the sides below them.
DIDNT YOU THINK WE WOULD BEAT CATS :lol:
