    Some good news

    No charge verdict for both of the 2 charges Josh Hardcastle was up for from Sunday's game.
  2. If I had to put money on...........
  3. Final positions after 30 matches decides the relegation places, no play offs. Although mathematically not relegated even if you lose to Sheffield and both Barrow and Dewsbury win, it will need some very favourable results, or other events, over the coming weeks for you to stay up.

    Super League Structure Sorted Within Next Fortnight

    How about any team that wants to be in SL has to deposit £2m with SLE? That'll sort out those who add value.......

    Nearly forgot, should the new Cas stadium ever get built they would actually be going backwards in your rankings from where they are now.......

    You've missed the exactly bit. What are the magic numbers required? Population of what?

    As Adey keeps asking, define exactly what is meant by 'most valuable'.

    Featherstone v Batley

    Neither effective policing of the SC nor Clubs obeying its rules necessarily stop a club from getting into financial difficulties. eg I doubt very much that Leigh have broken any SC regulation this season. The SC is meant to be a tool to aid financial stability not a panacea.
  9. No it doesn't, at best it looks as though it might be a try but from that angle you need the ability to see through players to know for certain that there wasn't a 'fax hand in there. The ref was in a far far better position than the camera to see what happened and the reactions of the 'fax players also suggest the ref got it right.
  10. I was asking someone claiming that the Qualifiers was 'mickey mouse' why his reasoning should not also be applied equally to competitions such as the GF (and obviously those others you mention) not saying that they actually were.

    Derek Beaumont statement Re Leighs future........

    The writing cheques comment refers to the season he took over I believe, and the clauses he refers to are for contracts with SL clubs in the event that they are relegated (hence why most Leigh players were dispensed with at the end of 2017) and not for Championship clubs not making the top 4. If that clause was allowed he would have put it into the players' contracts as would Featherstone and Bradford (in 2016).

    Derek Beaumont statement Re Leighs future........

    They can only include a clause if it is on the RFL's approved list of supplemental contract clauses. The fact that they didn't include an 'if we don't make top 4' clause in the contracts (and it would appear that Bradford and Featherstone didn't either) suggests that it isn't. IIRC it was brought in as a must have contract clause after Workington were relegated and then suffered financially in the very early days of SL. Whether it is still that case I've no idea.

    Making up for the short fall in funding.

    That post's from over 3 years ago. For some reason Colin is digging stuff up from up to 8 years ago!

    Gareth Hock Summer Bash Player Issue Shirt

    That's how it's described on ebay so not his actual shirt?

    I reckon my money would be safer under a brick in the front garden than deposited with ANY professional sports club
