The problem with it now being down to 1 game to stay up is that anything could happen in that 1 game!

we get a few injuries and are down to no one on the bench

somebody has a brain snap and gets sent off

a couple of bad ref decisions

wet weather where its anyone's game

somebody not handling the occasion....

there is no room for bad luck there is no oh well it will turn next week -
its a bad situation to be in can we do it or will we rely on others or has our luck,and financial situation about to end us?

Luck could go against any of the others too. Why look for trouble. My mother used to say "cross your bridges when you come to them."
Michael Carter has shown the soundest planning of any club head since my 49 years as a supporter started. I'd be very surprised if he doesn't have a contingency plan for relegation. Anyway, let's not think that way. We have it well within our gift to win this match

Just looking at the permutations for worst case scenario, if we lose to London, then our most likely "get-out-of-jail" card will be Salford beating Hull KR, but will Salford want to win ??, because, if they do and Wire lose to Leeds, then Salford will finish 3rd and will play Wigan at the DW next week, whereas if they finish 4th, then I think they get a home tie against Cas or Hull ??

But finishing 3rd gives them 2 bites of the cherry!! Even if they lose to Wigan they then get another chance against the winners of 4v5.
Not sure why you'd try not to finish 3rd if you had a chance!

We've had around 15 games since we last played London to avoid the scenario we find ourselves in!! It's our fault if we go down, winning 2 or 3 games in 15 since is relegation form isn't it?! Chester is quoted as saying he's watched both games back against London, and we are a different team now.....let's hope he's right eh!

But if they top Warrington they get a week off. If they then lose to Wigan they get a home tie against Warrington or Cas/Hull. I think?
