Its not something we have to worry about. Now players have been told which of them won't be having contracts renewed we just have to make sure we get the 1 or 2 wins that should help us avoid a relegation battle.

Is it not just 1 down? So Rochdale?

Even though I brought the possibility up, it's very unlikely.

Barrow need to win 4 out of their last 7 (a fixture list including away to Toronto and Leigh at home) and in turn Fax losing all their remaining 7 matches including Rochdale at home. If that happens, which would involve a losing run of 12 league matches, then we would deserve to get relegated anyway.

Other strugglers like Dewsbury and Batley would also have to put a decent run together.

It is massively unlikely, but the fact that were even discussing the possibility of relegation in July shows what a mess we have made of the league this season.

For me it's a mixture of 3 things. Sacking RM, poor recruitment, and the distraction of the cup run.

Fax have been playing terrible for weeks now,I predicted Fax would win one game before 21st July, Fax expert BFG described my prediction as Comedy Gold,in reality your next win could be Rochdale at home on 1st Sept.
For me a mistake getting shut of RM.Apparently the bottom 2 Clubs are relegated T the end of the season, realistically I can’t see Fax being there. :thumb:

Teams do have an expiration date. I think we have met ours now tbh.

In the League Express, Brian McDermott described Toronto as "really poor" and went on to say "Against better opposition, stiffer opposition - against a Featherstone, against a Leigh, against a Toulouse, in the playoffs - at that standard, we'll lose the game for sure".

How's it come to this? I thought we WERE stiffer than last season's Qualifiers team having strengthened with "SL experienced" players such as QLT, Grix, Kavanagh and Larroyer.

I just don't get it, guys.
