So Leeds, Saints and Wire get to play half their games at their home ground. Yet every other team has to play all their games away.

Unfair advantage.

Catalan/Toronto have to play all their games in the UK.

Bit of a farce of a competition.

Almost the same setup as the NRL and that's been absolute quality since it returned.

The quality of games has nothing to do with the unfairness of the proposed fixture format, especially when only four clubs will be playing home games at their own grounds!

So shall we cancel it and potentially send clubs under or accept it's not perfect due to a completely unforeseeable pandemic and find a way to keep going this year? :roll:

Depends on how much you want you want to pick holes in everything.

SL is back, so I'm happy. If that means us playing away then so be it

I’m not sure whether home advantage really exists without crowds. ATEOTD it’s about keeping costs to a minimum and the sports survival so if it turns out to be an advantage so be it.

We should be looking to get teams playing in their own grounds when crowds are allowed to return

There was a rumour that all games were to be played at neutral grounds. So what was so difficult in arranging that?
Having three clubs playing on their own grounds is ridiculous.
Who's responsible for this nonsense, RFL or SL?
