I agree Spelly it could have been a game changer for Hornets.We also had a free kick in front of the posts first half and took the tap instead of 2 points.It seem like da ja vue from the Ipro cup final.

It`s good to hear the league clubs discussing alternative fixture formats to remedy the imbalance of the current format,but this `positive discrimination`does not sit well with me in any walk of life.

Positive discrimination benefits some but disadvantages others and so their can be an uneven favouring towards a minority.

Colin its great to be positive with the current league structure but the facts are that some southern teams like London Skolars and South Wales have been in this league for anything up to 10 seasons and still cannot reach the standard of northern teams and this is reflected in their gates.Spectators mostly go to watch winning teams. 

Whatever the answer is I cannot agree with the current fixture arrangement which do not seem fair to all clubs.

I take your point Little Lion Man about targeting 8th spot if you cannot make the top 5,but would you deliberately throw games by fielding a weaker team to achieve this.It would`nt attract supporters to games and may have an adverse affect on gates.

I also think big wins against Southern teams does nothing to attract public interest in the long run only provides a boost to moral for the winning team short term.

Steve,I take it you mean  the way the fixtures have been structured York are favored with playing southern teams home and away.I thougth there would be winners and losers with such a format of fixtures.It seems the RFL tried to make it a close battle for promotion which they have achieved

The problem seems to be that the Southern teams should be in a separate league.
