After a win in the last game at the Jungle this season, Cas have it back in their hands.
A Win at Saints and Cas are in!

Tough one that!
what kind of team do Sts field in that match, Wire will probably pummel Quins
soooo if it goes as it "should" (Sts win Wire win) Crusaders would nip in with a result against Hull KR


I think blink.gif


Even as a Wire I am sorry but Westwood is nowhere near as skillful as Super Sam or Ellis.

Wazza's main industrys are service industries, call centres, warehouses and the public sector nowadays. All three are under threat from the Tory cuts.

I would say that is more difficult than it sounds, Saints need to win and by alot to hold onto 2nd place.

This is the last ever league game at saints so the fans and players should be up for this.

So you need to go back 8 years for a Cas win, a Cas win at Saints I'm not sure when that was.

Sorry did not mean to rain on your parade.
Super League the only place in the world where people still believe that less competitors and a closed market to new competition will improve the quality of the product.

Even the Chinese and the Cubans gave up on these marxist principles years ago.


SL with a reduced number of competitors and a closed market = North Korea.

Not wishing to be picky, but by your stats they need only go back 2 years for a win?

I don't think any team wants to go into the play-offs on the back of a defeat, so I reckon next weeks games will go with form and that means Cas will hold on to 8th spot. I don't think they'll get very far, though. But, good luck to them.

I think I want Cas do it rather than Crusaders

I think Cru have done brill this season after all the upheaval, and I do think the decisions have been against them recently, but still they have a lot to be proud of, and have a good season under their belt, from which I am sure they will improve...oh and they have my fav 70's throwback Sammut

Whereas Cas, I prefer as I have friends there, and I hope although they won't get much further, that it offers a little protection from any axe hanging over them

Quite right I do apologise. At least I put the stats up so people could see for themselves.

Maybe it's not such a long shot.

This weekend has seen the end of Wakefield as we have known it. They were well beaten by the lowly Bradford, and are almost certain to finish up in 11th spot, unless they can beat Salford at the Willows, in which case they might end up 10th. Either way their poor on field performance, when taken together with their years of unfulfilled promises of a new stadium, should ensure the axe falls on their collective neck in 2011. Relegation to the Championship would seem obligatory. The blustering Sir Rodney Dangerfield Walker will huff and puff, but the purported influence on rugby league of this pompous man is by now all imaginary.

Castleford are walking a thin line. Should they make the top 8 they will still be in the 50-50 category of clubs being considered for a SL license next year. But if they miss out on 8th place, and are overtaken by expansion club Crusaders, their fate looks less secure. Lack of a new stadium alone should be enough to win them the axe. But a failure to qualify in the top 8 when a new club Crusaders do qualify, will make relegation more likely.

You're worse than most for starting new threads when there already is one...do you have to be centre of attention?

There is no such alternative thread focusing on the consequences of this week's and next week's results for the licenses.

Do you always have to come forward in the role of the village idiot?

You got that covered on your own


A lot of Yorkshiremen believe that when God created the world, he made it with perfect balance.
He balanced the hot areas with the cold areas. the dry areas with the wet areas.
And, in creating Yorkshire, he created the most glorious place on earth - full of majestic beauty and sporting giants.........and for balance he created....... Lancashire.
