I know Wikipedia is proof of nothing, but Trin fans may wish to amend the wiki page concerning the SL licencing round we are talking about. Not only does it say they only got a licence due to the demise of the Crusaders, but that they've been into administration:

"Crusaders announced that they had withdrawn their application for a licence, believing that they were not financially able to sustain themselves in Super League in the near future. The club had gone into administration after the 2010 season, This decision provided a reprieve for Wakefield Trinity, who had been expected to be denied a licence after also going into administration in the 2010–11 close season. "

But we did enter administration in the off season 10/11?

In an open letter to supporters, Glover wrote: “It’s great to see the efforts of all the staff and team paying off and a big well done from me for their work."

“I mentioned on the TV news that we had been informed by Blake Solly, RFL compliance manager, that we won this licence on our own merit, so it’s a shame the gloss was taken off our award by the mention of Crusaders removing their application.”

"It is believed that the club had done enough to prove their suitability to continue in the elite division regardless of the Crusaders’ demise having being informed by the RFL."

I just hope the club relegated is the one that offers least to Superleague and everyone is entitled to their opinion

Wakefield haven't gone bust. Not twice, not even once.

They have been through a CVA - is that what you are referring to?

What's throwing you?

Being in administration is not going bust. Being bust is being bankrupt.

If the administration fails, you go bankrupt and cease trading.

Or, of course, be put into a pre-pack, where the old company and its debts are written off and a new company fills the hole left by the bust company.

He does it to me as well. Also wilzay. I think they are the same person
The Leigh and Wakefield fans mentality......

Say something negative about any other team than theirs - Its an opinion

Say something negative about Leigh and Wakefield - TROLL

I take your point but I would imagine that when people with an axe to grind say wakey have 'gone bust' they invariably will mean administration not that they ceased to exist as that's quite a rare event. I genuinely thought you were claiming they hadn't been in admin to be honest.

If people don't understand the words they are using, that's a reflection on them.

You can't dumb down, misrepresent or change the facts, through ignorance of the language.

I admire your resolution to not dumb down on here. That must be quite painful at times.
