  1. I realise this is probably a dumb question because I don’t understand the science, but Why?
  2. Consider the scenario where there are 11 grade “A” teams in SL and 1 grade “B” team. The grade “B” wins SL, but is then relegated because there is a grade “A” team in the championship. How stupid do we look as a sport?
  3. Hopefully this link works: https://www.loverugbyleague.com/podcast/ interesting interview with Adam Cuthbertson
  4. Spot on, joking aside, here is to hoping for a great game, roll on Sunday.
  5. Back on topic. Can I wish any Batley fans making the short journey over on Sunday a safe journey and may the best team win. As long as it's Fev
  6. Hi POR, Not that it really maters but the finals before franchising were referred to as the million pound game. You can see this here in the article on Sky for the 2007 game between Cas & Widnes: https://www.skysports.com/rugby-league/castleford-vs-widnes/preview/16601. Quote "Sunday's League One Grand Final is being billed as the £1m match and is arguably a bigger game than even the Super League Grand Final". As for the funding, your of the view that it is final league placings that decide the funding for next year and I recollect it being based on the playoff placings. As I have said I my be wrong but like you I can't find the actual details. However what I would point out is that should (in the unlikely scenario) York win the grand final they would receive funding as a SL club, not funding based on them finishing 6th in the championship. I'll leaving at that because I'm sure we have derailed this topic too much already.
  7. POR, It was called the million pound game before the middle 8s. Where do you think the funding comes from? But as I said I am not 100% sure, but seem to remember that the funding was from the playoff placings. As in all things there is a good chance that I am wrong, so if you can point me at something that shows how the league placings/playoff placing determine the funding for the following year that would be great. I've looked but can't find it.
  8. I’m not 100% sure, but I believe that central funding is dependent of where you finish in the playoffs. It is for this reason that the final is described as the million pound game, as in the team that wins the final gets funding as a SL team, not the team that finishes top of the league after the regular season.
  9. Sounds like concussion so Ford may miss the Workington game, see here: https://twitter.com/fevroversrlfc/status/1561413432171274244?s=21&t=vzlyYNWwvoZJPpc-p5bW1g
  10. Freddy bucket (apply the french accent)?
  11. That's impressive given that Leigh doesn't have a train station
  12. Does anyone know if this still applies? I can’t find anything on the Whitehaven site other than it’s £10 in before 1pm
  13. Eltel, the tweet they quote in the article (from Rugby League ITK) is from the 27th June, so what do you think?
