There have been many good teams in the Championship. Castleford 2007 and 2005 were very good. Leigh 2016 played excellent rugby and beat 2 super league clubs in the challenge cup.

I read somewhere that Widnes is going part-time next season. A lack of motivation might help us.

To the tune of 56-0 and counting.

Final score at Bradford similar to a few years ago after the Sheffield Eagles Players were informed that they were returning to part-time.

 The players were informed - I cannot recall if the supporters were informed at the same time.

The board released a statement on Facebook. Seems likely this did affect the players. Hopefully they won't carry on this way, otherwise a difficult season will get worse!

  Yea.I saw it on the Widnes website.

   Difficult for the players.May have holidays booked and now have to find other clubs and/or ascertain their future.

  Although in fairness to the board at Widnes - they did make statements which outlined the financial position and since then they have been denied money which may well have been factored into their projections for this campaign.

  Widnes may actually be ahead of the game - seems a shortage of cash in,and around,the sport.

Dewsburys number 19 is an absolute thug and ####, that will be all.

Makes it even sweeter that it was another of their thugs that dropped the restart to give us posession in the final minute 🤣🤣🤣

It was actually 2015 we beat the 2 super league teams, but I agree with the sentiment. 2014-2016 Leigh were good times in the championship for a Leigh fan.

Still 6 into 4 for the play offs , can't see Toulouse missing out , Leigh verses Fev next week will confirm another if Leigh can get the result , Widnes need to shake themselves out of this cloud they are under or they could easily still go down

Except of course they were extremely lucky at Fev.  Indeed Jon Wilkin was lucky to stay on the field after his head butt.  But we won't mention that in the general arslicken of Toronto.

Toulouse were back to normal today against Barrow, they've struggled for a bit with injuries but with key players back they looked too good against us. Too much strength pace and power plus some skillful halbacks.

How unlike you to be wrong!

Yes, I got two wrong.

Today was the 1000th try in the Championship, and before some loonie asks me who scored it, I do not have the times.

On the topic of tries

Toronto 132, Toulouse 100, Sheffield 91, Featherstone 89, Leigh 80, York & Widnes 76, Bradford & Swinton 70, Halifax 64, Batley 58, Barrow 57, Dewsbury 51, Rochdale 47.

Some, repeat some Fev fans being complete dickheads at the Shay today.

Haven’t they got a soccer team they can follow?
