YAWN they bloody well are
Yet oddly, in their two biggest games this year, the only games they played this year that were truly do or die, they failed. Who knows how they would have managed if everything rode on the season, who knows how the other teams would have reacted? It's simplistic to think that they finished top and therefore would have if the league leaders were crowned champions.
Last week proved this, the game was noticeably more intense than we see in games between these clubs in Super League.
Just so you know, when people go on about how Rugby League fans moan, they mean people like you. Only in Rugby League would we hear something like this. You hear it far less regularly in other sports. Can you imagine this,
"Congratulations to Spain for being crowned the World Champions, although to be honest they can't really claim to be as it is only a knockout competition and doesn't truly include the top 32 nations in the world. However, well done Spain!"
