Would we not be the host of the final if we went to Toronto and won in the play offs or is it at Toronto no matter what :THINK: because what if it is and Toronto don't get there


If Toronto get to the final, they are at home, no matter what. RFL have clarified today that the team that finished league season highest will be at home.

Crazy ruling, if it's not on neutral venue then the first team to qualify for the final should be deemed the highest ranked.

Sooner Toronto are promoted the better. They can be Elstone's problem then.

That's what I thought about the first team to qualify for the final would then get the final at home

It would be better, from our perspective, if we didn't get to the final, if Toronto are at home. The prospect of two or three trips there in five weeks or so, is absurd.

I think finishing 6th may be a wise option. Runs for cover.

Derek, doesn’t it matter because of Central Funding money, or has that been scrapped this year?

There might be some financial reward for making the top 5, but I don't think it's anything like as stark as it was with the 8s format.

Suspect DB would happily trade a few league defeats in exchange for beating Widnes in the cup.

May not have thought this through correctly, but we could possibly have

Toronto last game of season
Tolouse away 2/3 playoffs win
Toronto away lose
Tolouse away win (this may be home but not sure)
Toronto away final

Think that’s how it could pan out if tolouse come 2nd, us 3rd

Crazy schedule for any part time team if true :CRAZY:
Onwards and upwards - LTID
