This two leagues of ten idea has been floating around for so long that it is becoming an accepted fact. I think it is an accepted fact that we won't be popular members if we squeak in. If we do, we probably won't last long in it, as we will be by far the poorest member.

At some point, we are going.

The argument is all about the talent pool. I would agree with that, in that we don't have enough talent and our national side is further away from Australia than we have been for a long time. The grass roots should be the target, not picking at the top flight, as the talent pool has to get bigger. Grow the game in the soil to get the produce on the top, or something.

As for us, I think we might scrape it this year. If we are the same next year, I think Featherstone might come up looking strong.
EVENTUALLY, WE'LL WIN SOMETHING, ,MAYBE, IF I'M STILL ALIVE THEN

Re your last sentence Slugger. Do you really think Sky Sports, the RL / Super League, will put up with 3 teams from the Wakefield district in SL. i can't see it happening. With 2 from Hull in SL that would be 5 out of the 12, almost half of Super League from just 2 cities in England.

This is an excellent point.

Hull FC, Cas and Fev should all be banned from SL.

Sorted.

you can make that case of other players :?
my point is we are in need of someone with the ability to split the defensive line and he did with ease

Turned up to stop a certain Salford try by putting Burgess into touch 3m out and also stopped a runaway Escare

I am just glad our experts thought Hampshire brought nothing to the team and went for Gaskell. He is far too enthusiastic to be playing for us.

We cannot rely on others because Toulouse are improving and we are just rubbish.
