So, when the fixtures are released, assuming same format as last season, am I right in saying we will play Hull FC at Magic Weekend?

Then play the loop fixtures against Saints, Salford, Castleford, Catalans, Wakefield, and Hull KR? Exactly same as last year?

Great planning from the backroom staff to get the easier loops






Loving the success and the silverware, keep them coming :)

That’s correct.

St. Helens v Salford Red Devils
Wigan Warriors v Warrington Wolves
Castleford Tigers v Catalan Dragons
Leeds Rhinos v Hull FC
Wakefield Trinity v Hull KR

The reason we don’t already have a 14 team Franchise league is greed. There are enough suitable teams and a need for a certain number of fixtures, but the club chairmen won’t expand the league because they would get less TV money.

The game is going nowhere as long as the club chairmen are in charge...






It's not how much talent you've got, it's what you do with it that counts.

Can't be right. I thought Elstone, McManus and Lenagan were the heralds of a bright, new dawn...

Apparently, they're (SL and Elstone) seeking assurances from the RFL that Toronto meet their minimum requirements, and what those requirements look like. Why the feck don't they know what the minimum standards are for their own competition??

Although, they have confirmed that Toronto won't be getting any sky money if they come up, and that they'll be looking to reduce the number of fixtures in the future, but not in 2020

100% correct, the twelve teams receive around £2 million each club, basically the same as the salary cap, £24 million paid by Sky, if it goes to 14 clubs their money, i.e, their payment reduces downwards, the greedy chairmen don’t want to reduce their share, simple as that. This year with having 5 teams in the relegation fight it may have started to get her support for a 14 team league, but cannot see it now that relegation has been settled. These people are only looking after themselves, they are not worthy custodians of the game.
