It won’t happen surely. I’d put Leigh ahead of Bradford. Toulouse, York and London are the obvious favourites. I can’t see the logic of kicking Toronto out because of their poor finances to then promote Bradford who are infamous because of their poor finances (but they bring a big away following)

Can't see it being the end of the world regardless of choice.  Best of luck to whoever wins out and lets hope I get a chance to visit in 2021.

Why have we applied then. I dont think we have a leg (or ground) to stand on.

Think you been a bit harsh on your team.

Your by the far the largest supported club out of the six mentioned and probably the 6th largest supported club in the UK based in a city of over 500,000 people.

I can see why they are one of the front runners.

Slightly OTT.

Bradford probably shouldn’t be in SL, but I doubt that if they were admitted it would be the issue that questioned the integrity of the game.

But the wider picture is that they are even able to apply and are apparently one of the front runners.

SL want a team who bring a big away following . I think the bulls in SL would bring more fans than Wakie, Salford and Huddersfield. Although the away fans argument is ridiculous, clubs should focus on expanding their own fanbases

......and Im a Bulls fan. 

I am personally dreading Monday. We should be 6th on the list of applicants. I feel the integrity of the sport rests on Monday's decision. I feel the Newcastle decision was the correct one and similar decision like this needs to made. Rugby League needs to be completely transparent and Monday is a good day to start.

I totally agree. I'm also dreading the announcement in case for some inexplicable reason we are 'chosen'.

As for the 'away following' argument, the Bulls away following has gradually declined in recent years, as you might have expected. Yes, there'd probably be a boost if we got put into SL, and we'd certainly take more than some of the existing clubs. But any SL clubs hoping for or expecting a humungous away following, such as we had in the early 2000s, are deluding themselves.

Have the Bradford fans not moved onto new clubs? Will they all come back? 

I’d say most would have lost interest in RL. Relatively few fans are that dedicated that they’ll keep following something regardless of any other factors.

The most ridiculous decision they could make, but yes I think it is. If it is it will show how sad SL is, that they pick a team because they’ll bring an extra 300 fans to one game a season.

Must be Bradford

A club with a history of being a financial basket case.

Given TV money in advance as they didn't have any and couldn't even keep up the lease payments on Odsal. A shambles of a club.

If this is Elstones choice he should fall on his sword right away
