I was looking on the fixture list as i would of though the Widnes v FEV game might get moved to Thursday for Sky

I see there hasnt been a game selected as yet so do we know if we are playing sunday still as its getting too late to change the fixture or could this still get moved to the Thursday at this late stage.

Just shows how bothered the RFL & Sky are about the fans and even the players in this league. A whole 8 days notice to book time off work and rearrange travel plans....great stuff! :angry:

Then, of course, they wonder why the crowds aren't good.

Which in itself is ridiculous. There was a time BS when all decisive games on the last day kicked off at the same time. I would certainly be annoyed if I was a Leigh fan.

To be fair Fev should be kicking off at the same time as Leigh...Proves without doubt the RFL are a total joke; If I was a Leigh fan I'd be miffed; AND Dewsbury..York and Hunslet;

Remember that season - 1993/94, was it ? - when three teams went into the last weekend level on points at the top of Div 1? Sky had Warrington playing Friday and going top, Saints on Saturday, winning and going top, and then Wiggin on Sunday, winning and going top.

Anyway, I think any old win will do you. Maybe a draw if you scrape a bonus point on Sunday. :cool:

Dint the RFL have a couple of $uperleague teams kicking off on Saturday a few seasons ago, even though they weren't on Sky, just so's they could play their game simultaneously with the televised game.

Hey - maybe you could be playing Thursday night after all!! :laugh:

Think its the right choice of game - both teams have something to play for, Widnes have nothing to play for

Yes they could do that...in front of 200 people more than likely because loads would not be able to make Widnes on a Thursday night

Think id rather us lift it if we win it in front of 5,6,700 of our lot on a glorious sunday afternoon where loads more are going to be able to go

And they wouldnt be able to broadcast a trophy presentation - the programme finishes about 5 mins after the hooter, they arent going to fit pitchside reaction, studio reaction plus a trophy celebration in that alloted time, it took about 20 minutes last season after Barrow game just to get everything set up before the trophy even came onto the pitch

Whoever wins the League Leaders' Shield will get it at the first play-off game.

1. They'll be at home - guaranteed.

2. It'll be on Sky - guaranteed.
