Would be nice to get a bye given the fixture congestion.
Just my opinions unless it's a FACT, in which case it's a fact.

I know it's all about finances and keeping sponsors happy, but if ever a competition needed postponing for a year, then this is it.

We talk about the SL comp being devalued. This CC comp totally outdoes that. No club surely wants it and I can see it being a reserve team comp.
And so you aim towards the sky,
And you'll rise high today,
Fly away, Far away,
Far from pain....

Makes no difference, we'll still get Wigan.

The final is scheduled for Saturday 17th October (venue tbc). We were due to play Toronto the following week and now we have Catalan confirmed for Monday 26th October in Perpignan. Should we not make the Challenge Cup final then, amongst all this fixture congestion, we will have a 12 day interval between games This is going to be a very strange season in so many ways.

Surely, for the welfare of the players, there has to be some flexibility to the fixture list?

There are only going to be 2 teams in the CC final- The other 9 clubs can surely be able to rearrange matches around that date, so easing pressure on player's fitness in the schedule?

My first thought was that Eomann had complained bitterly regarding Uncle Rico's pool panel result against Cas.

Looking at the fixtures list I would imagine that SL coaches will be forced to choose between going for the Challenge cup or the SL trophy. There is simply no way they can challenge for both, we will surely be using the full squad of 30 for the SL matches as it is.

I was listening to Price on the club website and noted that he spoke of having a full squad of 34 players out training. I only have names against numbers 1 - 31 so it sounds as though three more of the youngsters have been added to the roster.

I agree, it would take something phenominal to win both competitions but I imagine that most clubs will give the Challenge Cup their best shot and look at the league afterwards.
