everyone knew before the season began that you could have dual reg players , players on loan and that bonus points were available . just beacause we have loaned players , had regular players from wigan ( who incidentally played far more games for us than for wigan ) and gathered up plenty of bonus points does not put us in a false position .the alternative is to splash out money we don t have on players who have an inflated opinion of their ability . by running our club as we do we are in the black and sit nicely in the league . would like to see the balance sheets of a few clubs and then we would see who is capable of running a viable team and who isn t .so please stop whining people of other clubs all we hace done is play the game .

And the inherent disadvantage we always have of geography . And I'm sick n tired of this BP argument , that it 'rewards mediocrity' . What a misnomer ... What about rewarding consistency , and competitive 80 minute displays . Excellent showings against superior opposition , and in away games, in particular have got a deserved reward - didn't see much mediocrity in those . Many are a tangible return for what you've put in . They are not only the rules - they are hard earned points , not charity giveaways . We are we're we've earned on a whole season... As is everyone , including the teams who've left these one pointers on the pitch . And ironically they are the teams who moan about them most !!!

Those who object to the bonus points invariably support a team that isn't so good at picking them up.   We keep hearing about bonus points keep teams with less wins above a team with more wins but every time I look at the table I see that those teams have usually LOST the same number of games.    You don't get bonus points for winning, obviously, so it is the loss column that people need to look at and then ask questions as to why those teams with more wins can't pick up a bonus point when they lose!!!!   At the end of the season bonus points will not have such a dramatic effect on the finishing positions as some would have us believe.    There might be one or two teams that exchange positions but both could just as easily have had the same number of losing matches in which to pick up a BP and one did it better than the other.

I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.
