Anyone suspicious as to why some clubs have called games off against the top sides?
Especially if they can't then rearrange these games?

I've spotted this article
https://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/sport/r ... id-5647666


the Robins have fixtures against Saints, Hull FC, Catalans and Warrington to rearrange but will do well to squeeze even one or two of those matches into a packed schedule.
As it stands, KR have seven games against the current bottom six during the run-in, including two meetings with winless Leigh Centurions and a home date with Wakefield.

The Hull derby this week was called off by Hull, not Rovers.
"Brian McDermott, with a wry smile, nods when asked if he remembers a specific incident which made him realise he was a prick. 'I do', he murmurs."

Yes I know Hull called this game off, I was just trying to point out that having games called off against the better sides could prove beneficial to their final league position, especially when they cannot be re arranged.

But they’ve got to play a certain amount of games (I believe 18) before they can actually qualify for the play offs. All it takes is a couple more call offs and then they are buggered.

Are we planning on rearranging our game with St Helens?
If teams have to play 18 games would that scupper Toulouse's chances and basically give the promotion to Fev?
Fev might have to hand the 1895 cup final to York due to a number of positive Covid tests.

Initially, the original fixture was called off by Rovers due to Covid. The re-scheduled fixture by Hull.

Not sure when they’ll re-schedule it. Probably need to wait until Australia finally confirm they are not going to play in the RLWC and the composers moved back another year.

No but they did re-arrange an away game against the table toppers.

It's definitely happening and it is very blatant. Other clubs are doing it to manage their schedule and keep their players in ideal condition. Warrington as an example of that, could easily have played their game but chose not to.

It was good to see Michael Carter calling the clubs out for their behaviour in his rant against the disciplinary panel this week.
