I thought Hull kr would have won that game, but London just won't go away.

Its still in the hands of all 3 teams above them to secure their own safety.

But realistically Hull kr now need Wakefield to win as I can't see them overturning a class Salford side.

Which is sad given the strength of support that Hull kr enjoy

I shouldn't worry too much, especially with Toronto likely to come up. You know, Expansion and all that. :lol: :lol:

HKR are one of the few clubs who will survive and prosper should they be relegated. They proved this last time, and will do so again if it comes to that.
I don’t think they will be relegated, it’s between Trinity and London, and as a Trinity fan, I fear the worst after our two previous defeats against London this season.

I don't think trinity can go down. They would need to lose by nearly 100 points, as I just can't see Salford losing to Hull kr.

Toronto will add to the league both in corporate interest as well as a new fan base. But across the league we need growth and I'm not sure Hull kr going down wil drive this.

If KR, London and Huddersfield win then, Trinity will be down as all 4 clubs are on the same points.
I think Huddersfield beating Catalan is a given as Catalan have been garbage for a little while and defeats during this period against an out of sorts Leeds side and London would indicate that they, having nothing to play for, are on the beech.
London are certainly capable of beating Trinity, which, just leaves KR and they would need their best performance of the season AND for Salford to have a bad day, for them to survive. But, it's been a strange old season and literally anything is possible.

I think that your comment about 100 points didn't take into account that all 4 relegation candidates are on the same 20 points and any win will see London (or Trinity) in SL next season.

I wish some Hull players had London`s players enthusiasm, we may not have had such a bizarre season.

And your comment didn't take into account the fact that he clearly stated that he didn't think HKR would beat Salford in which case he is right! Still squeaky bum time for you guys though.

I don't want London to go down, I've a lot of time for Danny Ward and think he's done fantastic with the limited squad he has this year. Plus, I had an enjoyable night away in Ealing and would like another one next season! I don't want Wakefield to go either - I enjoy our rivalry. So, I don't know who to shout for this evening?? Probably shout for London as I think Wakeys PD should see them OK as I can't see both Hudds and KR getting the win. Gonna be an interesting night ahead. It'll be interesting to see how SKY deal with it - will they have cameras at all grounds with a little screen at the bottom keeping a live update of goings on around the other games? That would be quite good, but probably be just the usual score update banners.

Weird game. Relieved to get the win, but really felt for London at the end. I felt no sense of victory walking past the London fans as I exited Belle Vue.
