Toronto appear to have hit a brick wall. They really are playing poorly at the moment. Leigh are recruiting experienced players and could steal it.

Anyway back to can we stay up; we have put ourselves in a position where it's up to us. Relatively 'easy' run in against some mid to lower table teams.

Looking at those fixtures, I just don't think anyone can call it. Every team in SL is still fighting for something, either play off spots or avoiding relegation, which is great for the competition.

Looks like I might have to make a couple of (rare for me) away trips in the last two weeks of the season.

In our favour, I'm not sure we have ever had a more committed bunch of players. It's great that we still have a realistic chance of staying up at this stage of the season.

However, our squad is thin so hopefully we can avoid too many injuries to give ourselves the best possible chance.

Wish that nobody is relegated this year.

At last we have competitive league this year.
Makes a lot of sense to promote 2 this time but suspect that will only happen if the Rhinos end up at the foot of the pile.

I am full of admiration of what the Broncos have achieved.

Cant agree with the nobody getting relegated, sport needs drama, sport needs something to play for.
Teams can survive going down of they are managed properly

Hmmm. Are you implying that we are a well managed club? Where do you think we'd be right now if DH had followed through in his promise at the end of 2013 and walked? I have no crystal ball, but a quid'll get you a ton it wouldn't be Superleague.

I am enjoying the drama this year and it is exciting that everyone is still playing for something, but outside of SL, clubs are reliant on DR Players and benefactors to survive. If the Championship gets its own TV deal with C4, then maybe there's life there after SL stops the funding, but if not, it'll be a part time comp inside 5 years.
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

[quote="northernbloke"]Leeds looking very vulnerable with top 2 to play.
Us and KR have what looks to be easier run in
Games v Leeds and KR getting really important now, although getting the feeling the last game of the season for us could be it.[/quo

That's internal optimism for you.

It may come down to Us Relegating Hull KR again, As in 2016. I'd really like that to happen Because we'd be able to chat all through 2020

The two home games look pretty vital now - then the last two away games. Might have to go to Craven Park, though as an ex-Hull fan despise the place. Just hope sky don't move our final fixture as my son is flying in from Dublin for the game!
