Leigh's average gate is lower than 30% of their ground capacity.

 Good  now't against Leigh former mining area and Hilton park had a row of terraced houses behind the sticks just like us at Fev.Must admit when they were too good for the rest of the Championship i didn't like their spoiling and niggling tactics.However they played some of the best Championship R.L. i have seen.

I suspect that a couple of clubs are keeping their powder dry for the moment. The more that drop out then the greater the chance of a prize, increasing the attraction of entering.

I’m sure the max prize has already been announced as £70k, that’s what clubs are basing it on who’ve already decided. I’d have to remember where I read that though

Do you have a link for that? A 250k pot is a 250k pot.

I am a little surprised that Matthew Shaw's piece, being dated as recently as three days ago, reckons that Toulouse were undecided.  Bernard Sarrazain's statement on the club website, which I think pre-dates that, sounds pretty emphatic to me, especially when he says to make up for the shortfall of no TO to watch, try following the reserve team in Elite 1 from November.

Very poorly updated. North Wales pulled out days ago.

If you're going to do it, do it right.

Well, that potential figure is based on a 16 team comp.

An 8 team comp would hand out more per club surely?

Big assumption there.

These new lockdowns demonstrate how quickly things can change.  Several clubs are in the new area either side of the Pennines.

It's a nightmare to plan ahead more than ten minutes.

Why? If the brass is on the table, it's on the table.

It could stay on the table.   No need to splash it about.

Party at mine tonight everyone. Im spending 1,000 quid on booze.

If the same four losers turn up, the only mates Ive ever had, they're in for one hell of a drinking session.

If the place is crashed by the entire TRL forum, y'all get half a can of no-brand lager each before the place is dry and I set the dogs on you.

Do you see?

This is why I think some teams are being pretty short sighted here. The money is there. Unless there's something we've not been told that changes that (which is quite possible) then surely the fewer teams who enter the better for those that do.

No.

Party at mine tonight, £1000 to spend on booze.

If only four turn up, £50 will be plenty.

Depends how they weight the prizes. For example, if the participation amount stayed the same per club and they used the surplus to increase the winner’s prize then the “also rans” would be no better off. 


I’m not prejudiced, I hate everybody equally

Either way, it's risky.  We might see more restrictions as the autumn comes along.   We might not.   But there's nothing that makes me confident that we'll be playing in front of crowds in this as yet hypothetical contest.  If you don't need the crowds, take part.   But if you're relying on the crowds for your finances, maybe not.

There is 250k set aside for this tournament. 

 

Also, please everyone, we all know there's a global pandemic, we all know everything is conditional on how it develops, but do we have to bring it into every single page of every single thread?

Please.

"After receiving full details of the competition and learning the criteria in which the club would need to meet, a decision has been made that it would be in the club’s best interests to not enter"

I'd be interested to know the criteria the club had to meet....

Not following your point, Mark.

You're the one who brought it up.

Yes, that’s the key bit.

I’ve been critical of Euro XIII for their lack of transparency so it would be good to know what is required of clubs for this tournament.
