Topics I've Started

Anyone know ........

15 September 2014 - 05:30 PM

...... what is happening with that RFL review of the game in West Cumbria?    Has anyone been involved with it other than fill in that very simple questionnaire that told nothing?    Has anyone met Mr Rapley the person who was conducting this review?  


The review was due to be published at rear of the summer 2014!!!!

SL2 in 2015 season

19 July 2014 - 10:45 PM

Why don't the RFL come right out and say that they don't like the idea of the Bulls and the Broncos being relegated and that they will do whatever it takes to get them back up in to SL.


The two relegated clubs this season will come down with parachute payments of around £750k each and both have publicly stated that they will retain full-time squads next season.    The SL2 salary cap will be around £900+k and the RFL have now stated that clubs can have 5 overseas players in SL2.    That's helpful to the two relegated teams being able to retain their overseas players from this season don't you think?


After all that we then have the 8 team play-off with SL's bottom 4 against SL2's top four which will probably contain the Bulls and the Broncos in a 7 game play-off.    And even if they don't make the top 3 in that 8 team league as long as they finish 4th or 5th they get yet another chance to gain promotion once again to SL.

Who will be the unlucky 10th?

14 July 2014 - 04:03 PM

On the main page of TotalRL.com there is a poll for people to indicate who they think will be the unlucky 10th placed team and get the final relegation place.    They have reckoned that it is down to 6 teams and at the moment the poll is showing Dewsbury - 0%, Batley - 6%, Sheffield - 17%, Town - 22%, Haven and Keighley - 28%.


Looking through all the remaining fixtures for these 6 teams I think Keighley are now favourites for the drop as I can only see them picking up about 10 points from their next 7 games, which would give them 42 points and last years 10th placed team had 34 points.


As I see it (and it is only my opinion) I think it will end with Dewsbury 5th, Sheffield 6th (they have an extra game), Batley 7th, Town 8th, Haven 9th and Keighley 10th.    The Town - Haven game could switch our positions around as I have given Town the win and Haven a bonus point but the other way round could change the positions.


Remaining Fixtures for the 6 teams:


7 September

Doncaster v Batley

Keighley v Fev

Rochdale v Sheffield

Swinton v Haven

Town v Dewsbury


Everyone is a cup tie now!!!!
