I’ve no idea I’m not John Kear. What have Leigh got to do with Bradford? Their squad was already better than everyone else’s in the division. Again none of these means anyone other than ill informed people like you thought Bradford were promotion material.


Because Leigh got the vote. Why? Because they were more ready for SL than the others. By applying, your club obviously felt you were ready. 1 year of SL money and hiding after hiding wasn't exactly going to get you anywhere so there must have been a belief from the powers that be that you could compete. The two games i've seen from you so far majorly suggest otherwise. All my opinion of course.

Well that's their fault for agreeing to that deal then. They could have said no thanks and found their own deal, but they accepted the hand out instead.

I pretty much doubt however that your application said "we'll get stuffed every week cos we're crap but please please let us in"

That still doesn’t have any bearing on the merits of the actual squad assembled to compete in the championship this season but keep trying. You’ll get there one day. A bit like getting a girl to kiss you.

Again - as it's pretty much the same squad you would have had in SL you obviously felt it was good enough. Unless of course my previous post was exactly what you put in your application.

Application - pieces of paper

Actual squad put together - real life

Lol, London applied too, and we KNOW we haven't a squad to compete, we'd have had to have cobbled together something from those no-one else in SL wanted and some imports, it's madness to think Bradford wouldn't or shouldn't have applied, it's not the fans fault the club is in it's current predicament.
Long live the Fulham-London Crusaders-Broncos Harley-Quids Broncos (again) RLFC!

[quote="Egg Chasing"]So you were going to sign 25 new players were you? And from where would you have signed these players weeks before the season starts? How many have Leigh signed?


I think we've managed to sign 4 players since we got voted in, might be wrong.

Both squads were already put together (based on financial projections that took into account the loss of last season, uncertainty over whether fans will be back this year and the prospect of no central funding next year) well in advance of Toronto folding. When that unexpected opportunity arose why wouldn’t clubs apply for it?

EXACTLY! Only idiots (imho) did not apply, it's like being offered a free lottery ticket and saying "nah, I'll pass pal"...
