Nobody tipping Leigh ? , Strange ?

I consider 5th place for us Gubby, I fancy Fev to beat Tolouse, still had you given that me 5th last Oct I would have grasped it immediately, the season has been good albeit I would say it was better for the first 2/3rds than the last portion, I think that the inclusion of some of the newbies has disrupted the teams attitude and application.

Depends on what Fev team turns up.

All games should really take place on Sunday. I think this will be the weekend where York clinch second spot.

Well you know why two games are played on Saturday! 

Wonder what will happen next season with the fixtures should Toronto gain promotion, I somehow don't think the SL will be as flexible as the Championship divisions have been.

You're right and visa issue's and block matches will miraculously be solved!

York have had a great season regardless of the final outcome, nice to see Salford in the mix as well. SL is so boring and predictable most of the time.

Leigh squad has been announced, it is much stronger than I expected it to be, initially I was not to bothered with the team I was half expecting to be sent over that it was not being televised, now that the squad has been announced I would like to have had the opportunity to see it.

All these games should kick off at the same time on the same day.

Breakfast Kick-off in Toronto?

In fairness it is entirely doable in the current climate of Toronto kicking off at 6pm UK time. 

so the rest of the championship have to accommodate Toronto?

Still, slightly on topic... A couple of seasons ago the lower two divisions were playing 3 points for a win, 2 points for a draw, and 1 point if you lost by 12 points or fewer. Now I have done some calculations and if we had that this season the table would look like this...

Toronto 75 points

Toulouse 63

Leigh 59

Featherstone 58

York 58 (pts diff)

Bradford 52

With 1 game to go

I’m not normally confident in close games but I think Fev will beat Toulouse and come in 4th. 

Ive stopped tipping against York even though fordy’s been on the ###### for 2 weeks, so think they’ll come in second. 

I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that whoever wins the 4th v 5th game will play Toronto in the final.

That 4th v 5th whichever way around will most likely be Leigh and Fev, big ask for either of these two to go all the way, quite a few part timers in both teams requireing time of work.
