if wakefield and london are tied after 80 and the results have come in from salford and hudds, say salford have beaten kr, whats to stop wakey and london just playing their sets out for 10 minutes without any team going for a win, both are safe!


Economics. Wakey are not a rich club and losing KR as a visiting team could cost them 50K a year, which is a decent squad player salary.
WAKEFIELD TRINITY - MORE ANCIENT. MORE LOYAL.

Salford red all over wrote:
What league have you been looking at ? we have everything to play for EVERYTHING we need to beat HKR by a large margin especially if Wire Beat Leeds in order to finish third and get the second chance. If Leeds somehow manage to beat Wire we will only have to win by a small margin.

I'm intrigued why you think we have nothing to play for ? especially as we are going for eight straight wins.


He has the RLFans inflicted condition of "speakbeforethinkingitis" which seems to affect a large number of posters. :wink:

I think you'll also find we can finish 2nd if both Wigan and Wire lose and we beat KR. We can also finish 2nd if Wire win, Wigan lose and we better Wires winning margin by 14 points I think.

No chance Salford will be letting up next week so Friday night will be one hell of a dogfight with some crazy twists and turns along the way. Just grateful Salford (whilst having a massive say in proceedings) aren't in danger of having the trapdoor pulled from beneath our feet....

Cheers for that
They don’t know everything but I hope they are about right.

What a great story for RL if Salford somehow managed to pull off the impossible, and London to survive. I'm very nervous as a Wakefield fan about Friday, wasn't this nervous for the last 2 decoders, just have a bad feeling that we need Salford to do us a favour.

I seem to recall the famous Halifax v Fev game in the mid 80s that finished a draw. Halifax won the league and Fev avoided relegation. Legend has it that the ball never went further than 20 meters from the halfway line in last 20 minutes of the game.

Problem is that whilst a draw would be plenty for Trinity, London may actually need to win, pity though.
I hope that we have an electrician on hand to deal with any floodlight failure on 65 mins :D

Wishing good luck to all four teams and supporters involved in tonight’s relegation decider.

Hope it’s a fair and square outcome and not mired in controversy and poor officiating.

:D

Bound to be some twists and turns as the games unfold.
Most of the neutrals will be wanting London to stay up, which as long as Trinity do, I'll be happy.

Maybe a Catalonian surprise awaits Huddersfield :PRAY:

Come on Trin !
