What a total joke Leeds is this season. A pathetic performance. They also looked utterly exhausted.

Also, I suspect the halving the parachute payment idocy from the RFL (how was that decided?) will mean Widnes totally fold, meaning we're away to Toronto.

RFL will put stupid expansions above all others. I agree we need to expand the game but do it properly and not just admit teams because they have financial backing. The rugby teams which are already around also need help from the RFL ie Bradford, Widnes etc not just pushed into financial situations that breaks them. Forcing clubs to grounds which hold far more people than is necessary ie Salford and possibly London is stupid and doesnt help anyone. Far better to have clubs in 100% safe grounds. But hey if the RFL want to push clubs out of being who are we to argue we are only paying fans

How did it not come up in a committee meeting that sharing the parachute payment for relegated SL clubs would create a conflict of interest?! It's a blatant flaw.

we will go to Toronto... With RFL stating that widnes would lose £250k if KR go down, widnes will lose by 40+ on sunday to ensure they keep the £500K

its amazing just how stupid the people running RL are... What a collective bunch of idiots.... They are effectivly paying Widnes to lose

There isn't any stands or cover to protect the spectators from the elements at Toronto Lamport stadium surely this stadium fails to meet the RFL minimum standards criteria for a professional rugby league ground

Not sure if the standards actually say anything about the stands having to be covered! Just talk about capacity

Money paid as parachute payment is only any good if it’s Spent wisely AKA Leigh! Even with an extra hand out they not stay up.
Think the whole central funding issue is one of the big problems in the game that will not be resolved unless there is a radical shake up.
If that means franchise again! Then Toronto tick a lot more boxes than us!

Ok if you wish to be pedantic. Don’t think there is anything that says the designated seating areas have to be covered.
What do you want to call the two structures either side of the pitch at lamport stadium. What ever you wish to call them they have the ability to seat 9000 plus
Besides they are Canucks they have big coats and boots to keep warm
