So we are in the draw for the next round which is being drawn on Monday. The round is to be played weekend 14th / 15th March. On the 13th of March we have a superleague fixture away against Wakey. Way to go planning superleague!
So both ourselves and wakey either have to use reserves or postpone our game. That’s two we would need to fit in.
This sport is a joke :SHOOT:
:FRUSRATED: :FRUSRATED:

And they seem surprised people are turning away from it!

The round 7 Wakefield away and the HKR v Toronto fixtures have both to be rearranged due to the four teams who finished bottom last year entering the cup at this stage. This has been the case for the last couple of seasons as far as I'm aware, so wont be playing 2 games that weekend. The games have been clearly stated on official season fixture lists as "rearranged TBC".

So why put them in the fixtures if they know they won’t be played?
Why not start a week earlier as the WCC team have in previous years?
The teams finishing at the bottom aren’t given a level playing field for the following year- the same old teams winning every year is an issue with the sport- and then they do their best to ensure it continues happening!
Those running the sport are a joke.

I didn't reply to your comments to be criticised with the facts. I don't know the answers to your two questions. I don't make the rules. I simply gave you the facts for your benefit. Agree regarding those running the sport.

Draw Sheffield and watch the Wakey board go into meltdown :shock: :shock:

There’s a few tough games if we are drawn away hope SW doesn’t do a Rick Stone if we get what looks like a relatively easy game...
