The only year SL had relegation after the franchise was the only time in SL where we finished bottom, unlucky or what?. How many SL teams have been relegated after 10 wins. How many teams are there outside the M62 corridor which people know about.. Does the corridor actually grow the game as much as London does with new schools, new clubs etc.. Look at all the SL teams and they all have London lads in there, Look at all the teams sprouting up around the south and actually producing great talent. We are now developing some wonderful academy talent and we need a place in SL to get on TV and showcase this. Only seeing the same old teams from the same area does not really interest people outside that area as there is no competition or interest for the people from further south. IF the RL really do want to expand the game with a viable option they need to take their heads out of the clouds you cannot accept teams from across the Atlantic. Clubs are fighting financially to survive as it is and covid has made it worse, FInding the funds to go to France possibly twice a season is bad enough but crossing the Atlantic.is stupid never mind without the extra cash spend and the pressure on the players. Its not a 7 hour journey it is 10hrs each way including airport time.. Also Toronto replaced us so lets replace them we were the next team down after them. I,m sure DH, DW and JL still have time to amass and train a team fit for SL they have the power


One of the failures of some London fans argument is that there is a strong argument for inclusion based solely on location and its access to Fleet Street and 7 million locals.
It just hasn’t worked in 40 years. Crowds are declining from a low base and RL reporting in the national press is also declining
The scouser who runs SL said to me when he visited Trailfinders, this isn’t SL.
Mac out!

The scouser who runs SL commenting on Trailfinders and the level of support for the sport in london after 40 years of trying was actually spot on.

Participation in london at a community level has probably remained stagnant over the last 10 years, so in or out of SL its had little real effect.
So actually without a pretty major shake up, eg maybe that leyton move rumour, other clubs are way ahead.
Toulouse are for me the obvious choice, at least its expanding in an area where RL has a support base.

As wrong as it may seem, Toronto will be allowed to rejoin Super League, mainly due to the fact that Covid-19 played a small part in their initial player problems with extending visas etc....then Argyle stopped paying folk.

I hope Toronto dont get back to SL - they bought their way there with no salary cap and paid for one player after another in fact you could say they changed players as often as changing your kegs. If this does happen then I think Wigan and Bradford have a very real reason to complain. In fact also London Quins as we got hit very hard by the RFL when there was a genuine mix up in gate receipts. Toronto knew what they were doing
