Some of the blocking off that goes on in Super League is appalling.


I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

It’s a real shame London are going to go down. Thought they might have just been able to sneak it today, unfortunately not. 

It is. And i would rather see other teams be relegated other than this team which has shown real promise, skill and endeavour at times this year

It's a flippin' shame they couldn't raise it one more time tonight, although from all the names that were mentioned going to other clubs next season it would appear that they would have been struggling for a SL team next year 😞

Hard luck London, I really wanted you to stay up. You've been one of the most enjoyable things about this season and I think you've been most people's second team. I want you back up as soon as possible!

Very sad for the inspirational Broncos. Let's hope they can bounce back soon.

To be perfectly honest London going down emphasises why I don't like P&R simply didn't deserve to.

And if nothing else SL needs more fans like the ones London have got. Great effort by the players and everyone on the terraces.

Shame that London are going down, they have really played their part this season but tonight seemed to be a game too far as I didn't think that they were quite the London we have seen this this year, but if Dixon had taken his chances to ground the ball who knows what could have happened. It is really harsh on them to be going down on PD.

But when we had the 8's people were saying the opposite...(i.e. its not fair that 2nd to bottom got relegated following a play off system, the bottom team should have been relegated etc etc)...as gubrays says, like it or not, London hace finished bottom tonight when all has been said and done

To me it looked like a mental preparation thing (or lack of it)...wakey were making plenty of mistakes but their hunger was there for all to see...london were a gear or two lower and didnt seem as keen for it

I think lack of desire is often exaggerated in Super League players. This is definitely the case in tonight's scenario.

I don't think that's right or fair. London are bottom for a reason. They're not as good as the rest of the league. They had chances early on, fell behind, and could have come back near the break. It wasn't some lack of desire that meant that they didn't - it was that it didn't work out for them because if you're not as good as your opponent then you need some luck or to catch them out in some way. Neither came tonight.

London have done magnificently to take it to the last match of the season. By rights this team should have been relegated weeks ago on 6 points.
