To put it in perspective, Swinton has won the League twice since Huddersfield Won the league last.

It helps that there is now a proper presentation and I believe there is also a financial prize of some sort.

Thanks! Wasn't aware of that.


It's an easy kick for the lad but, as we say in Rugby League, there's no easy kicks.

Really pleased for the Giants. A great success story and a lesson for all the other clubs struggling at the moment.

I think all the comments are deserved and importantly genuine.

 

Huddersfield are a real success story.

Just adding my congratulations.  Huddersfield have played consistently well throughout the season and Baloo has a strong squad that should put in a real challenge for the Grand Final.  Great to see Ken Davy rewarded for his outstanding support and investment.

Don't forget about £1,500,000 a year from above for 10 years, you were asking for that weren't you Ant?

Really happy for them. But please God, can they give out a better trophy than that designless hubcap! I think even some of the players were embarrassed to "lift" it!

NRL's looks great.

Problem is as soon as Sky wanted the Grand Final anything that detracted from that had to be denigrated and diminished - so the Challenge Cup was ignored and the League Leaders minimalised

On the plus side, the LLS that is awarded is a keeper, not just a one season thing to hold on to - personally they should give the shield to keep and something like the NRL as the actual award

Fwiw the actual Superleague Trophy is the epitome of artless tat.

81 years - a long time between drinks! Well done to Baloo's Boys, they absolutely deserve it.
