I took the quote from the link you provided for the St Helens Star.

It does say the below. I’ve cut and pasted it.

That system rewards the highest placed team with the potential of an extra day's preparation for the Grand Final - should they win.

Sky have the pick of the games and they have the Friday game with Channel four having the Saturday game. The previous advantage has now gone as Sky will make the decision.


So what if Sky choose our game? Still doesn’t solve the problem

Maybe that's why we lost to Leeds and Wakey. We're trying to finish 3rd so there's no issue.

I don’t see what the problem is. Saints play Friday end off. If Wigan can’t fulfil their fixture on the Saturday they forfeit the game. Why should the rest of the league Bend backwards just because Wigan don’t have a stadium?

The same article from the same link also states the following quote " Discussions are currently taking place about the scheduling, but it is unlikely that Saints would willingly want to swap their Friday for a Saturday and forego their extra day of preparation".

As hard as it might be to not do it, painting Saints as the villains isn't right. This have every right to say no to moving their game to accommodate a football match.

Why should they move from a Friday 8pm slot, because Latics are at home. It's wrong and a backwards approach from Saints, Us or RL to move even an inch to accommodate it.


One thing I’m missing in all this is when we confirmed our second place finish anyway. It’s certainly not guaranteed, so the issue may naturally disappear anyway. I’m not painting Saints as the villains but my god, they’ve loved a moan this season. They’re even moaning in advance of a problem becoming reality now.

Ultimately I’d have thought their supporters wouldn’t find a days rest an issue. We hear enough confidence noises from them, enough claims of how much better they are than the rest, that I really wouldn’t think they’d bat an eyelid. Let’s be real, they’re seeing an opportunity to throw the old ‘you don’t own your own stadium line out’ and that’s fine. History proves the days rest does not matter. Sky will pick which game they want to show regardless.

You like to come on here and pretend to be the "reasonable" face of redvee and Saints supporters but you couldn't wait to come on here and twist the knife into the Wigan club over a potential problem in the play offs. In answer to your question, if Sky choose the Saints game then Wigan could have a problem. Then again if Sky choose the Wigan game ( if they finish second that is) then there is no problem. So why don't we wait until Sky choose before arguing over rights and wrongs etc. I suppose I could head over to redvee to put this point of view over. Then again I don't think I will bother.

All comes down to who Sky think will be the better game
