With some of the so called smaller or weaker teams really fronting up, long may it continue.

Agreed, Hull FC were one of the few weaker sides not to have fronted up, must be galling. ;)

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

How many casual/non RL fans are NOT following the season due to the less than encouraging season previews by our esteemed RL journos?

The one that went 'same old big four winning every game'.

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

Nah, after witnessing yesterday's debacle, I'm not sure I'd miss them at all.

There have been some great games every week. It so happened that every result seemed to go in Wigan's favour, which didn't do Amy harm. That said, it seems to me that pretty much every crowd this year is down on last year, often by a lot. Which is a shame and a worry.

Though personally disappointed that my team was on the wrong end of one of the shock results, surely it must be a plus for the game that teams at the bottom end of the table show they can beat/compete with some of the top placed teams. Feel also that this season's results are showing some positive benefits of licensing- Widnes looked all at sea during the first half of last season before starting to understand what was required to be in Superleague. However they also had the luxury of knowing that last season did not need to be all or nothing, their second season they have strengthened their team and now look competitive and worthy of their place at the top table.

I didn't see loses for the Giants, the Wolves and the Reds happening this past weekend. All good for Super League, and it keeps the so called bigger teams on their toe's.

That's the problem with Rugby League - it's too predictable (© all sports journalists). :rolleyes:

Just watched the highlights of the Wigan game on Sky, the Wigan fullbacks attempts at tackling are hilarious.
