Looking at the SL table it is hard to find the team that I would most like to see relegated. It would be nice to see London stay up to stick two fingers up at all the SL snobs. After that we have Hudds, Wakey Leeds and HKR. First of all it should be noted that I do have all sort of chips on my shoulder.
Wakey because they beat us in the first million pound game.
Hudds for nicking all our players starting Krapcek.
HKR. Don't really have a beef with them and at least they aren't Hull.
Leeds - do we need another reason.

There’s 2 criteria for me.
1 - which clubs would have to do a bit of “cloth cutting” if relegated, which would give us a better chance of competing with them next year. My assumptions would be London, Wakey and/or HKR. Due to a lack of multi millionaire owners.

2 - Karma (for perceived injustices) or funniest - Everyone except London....
Pollsters doing Excellent job - say recent polls.

Much as it grieves me to say this, I think SL needs Leeds. We have few enough big city glamour clubs as it is.

Wakefield and Hull KR would be hilarious - the sense of entitlement from Neil Hudgell and Michael Carter about why they should be sitting at the top table is palpable.

In the event, I still think it will be London, sadly...

I know it's fanciful but a Leeds relegation would work out well for the Championship especially if Toronto do not get promoted. There is an argument that if London or Leeds were to be relegated and Toronto got promoted the Canadians would have trouble selling the league. At the moment the moment they are pushing their reason d'etre is to get to the top division. Once there how do they sell it? 'This week we are playing St Helens'. "oh, where's that?". 'It's a town outside Liverpool'. "Oh I've heard of them. So we're playing Liverpool". 'No. A town near Liverpool'.

Hull KR, Only because how much of a set of vultures they've been recently. Other than that I quite like them.

Huddersfield - What do they bring to the party?

I'd take equal amounts of glee from any of Hull KR, Wakefield or Huddersfield being relegated, but sadly think it will be the Broncos.

Hudds getting relegated would he a disaster. Might be a few laughs on here but Ken Davy would dig deeper into his pockets and they'll walk the championship.

Leeds - if they were to be relegated it wouldn't surprise me to see SL step in and make it a 13/14 team comp. They can't afford their biggest club not being there.

Hull KR - to be a fly in the room if Hudgell & Chalmers met in a Championship chairman board meeting. Not sure if they would walk it like they did last time as I don't think they'd be able to throw the money at it again.

Wakey - they look in all sorts of bother. One of their fans put
On their board that apart from Hudds, they haven't beaten an SL team since April. With 5 of their remaking 7 games against top 5, plus KR away, not sure where their next win is coming from. If they were to be relegated I think they'll end up another Fax. They don't have a chairman to pump money in, plus they have a huge loan to pay off for the stadium. That said I think they'll survive as I can't see London winning 3 more games than them.

London will be bravely relegated sadly.

In a way, the more interesting question is who will get relegated next year if Toronto go up.

I think it's obvious that Toronto will throw a ton of money on getting together a team that will comfortably stay in SL. So there won't be a brave-but-ultimately-loser team at the bottom next year like London.

...which means that suddenly the likes of Wakefield and Hull KR will be sweating a bit :lol:

Agree - I've said this to every Rhinos fan I've met this year. The game can't afford for it's most recognized teams to be not competing in the top competition.
