Yeah all home wins.

I think Leigh comfortably beat Sheffield if they play anything like they did Sunday and the same goes for Fev beating Fax. Toulouse Im taking them on the handicap with anything up to about 36. London easy home win, Swinton a tight one but Im not expecting Dewsbury to get out of the bottom 4 this year so going to go with home advantage. Widnes easy win against another team I see in the bottom 4. York game could be tight but think York will have too much despite their poor showings so far this season.

All look like home wins before the playoff rivals start meeting next week.  Game of the week York vs Bradford in terms of being competitive and opening up that final playoff spot.  If Bulls can sneak a win then will leave York 4 points behind Widnes and having to play Leigh the week after.  

Whats the game on Our League this week?

Bradford the only away winners.

I'll travel in hope but definitely no expectation. I wasn't impressed with York in our pre-season game but they are a good side and will take some beating on their own paddock. It could be a tight game.

Can't see it being a big crowd, poor ko time and Fax don't bring many. 

True. Still quite a number of Fax fans that boycott this fixture. Its sad but its hard to argue with their reasoning.

Game wise it should be an easy win for Fev as we were pretty poor against a very average Sheffield team so Im just hoping for can compete for a big chunk of the game and anything else would be a bonus.

It's a good job Rovers fans don't boycott Fax away because you'd lose a decent chunk of revenue!

Just lose a player after half time, they bottle it against 12 😉

Fax V Fev games don't have the same sort of pull that they used to have. That was clear at the home and away games last season with maybe only a hundred or so travelling away fans at each. Our home games against Fev used to be our biggest attended games but last season it was in line with games against teams like Batley.

Looking forward to the new season and seeing my Leigh team, this is the 3rd season on the trott I have to make myself familiar with a whole bunch of new players, if they give me as much pleasure as the team that was cobbled together at short notice last year that will do me.
