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.
