How is that going to affect things? That would be a game that London would probably have won, does this give Haven more of a sniff?

London being full time might try to get it played mid week if they need the win for the percentage. If not, Broncos beat Swinton, lose to Fev and Haven need to hope York do them a favour.

Will be tough, but I really hope they can get the win though. Would love to see them beat Whitehaven.

Agree , but don't risk money on it 😀😀😀

It's easily the nicest ground in Yorkshire to visit as an away fan, even without free biscuits.

Not for all away fans it isn't.

Sport, amongst other things, is a dream-world offering escape from harsh reality and the disturbing prospect of change.

Batley Bulldogs v Sheffield Eagles    Batley at home should have too much for Sheffield. Batley by 20.
Bradford Bulls v Swinton Lions  Easy Bulls win. Bulls by 36.
Featherstone Rovers v Dewsbury Rams    Easy Fev win. Fev by 42.
Oldham v Toulouse Olympique    Easy Toulouse win. Toulouse by 48.
Widnes Vikings v Halifax Panthers    Form says Fax but we are short of players this week and could slip up. Widnes by 4.
York City Knights v Whitehaven    Another tight one with Haven in form just going for them to edge it. Haven by 6.

He's right, you can't beat Post Office Road. 

LOL. I guess it's warmer than Oldham, drier than Headingley, a better view of the pitch than Belle Vue and with less chance of disappearing down a sinkhole in the terracing than Odsal. It's still the only ground where I definitely wouldn't take any family members with me though.

I'll take my grandkids should either of them show any desire to watch fev.... the grandboy has a shirt....and a ball.... and goes to a tots team.... so I'm hopeful.... 

Plenty of room for all sorts at fev

Widnes showing they are a few players short of being a playoff team next season. 

I wouldnt under estimate just how poor we were today despite having a few players missing. I'd predicted Widnes to sneak it when I saw our squad but the performance itself was abject. Its been coming though we have won a few games recently we probably deserved to lose. The target was 3 out of our last 5 but I would have prefered not to have to pick up a win up at Haven the way we have been playing and Swinton look like they could give us a game next week although we should have a few players back next week and one of them thankfully is a goal kicker. The Fax goal attempt lottery has not been fun to watch. Today it was JWH's turn to have a bash, nails one from the touch line then one 5 yards to the left of the posts misses by a good 15 yards.

Well you cant play well every week. Making playoffs is sometimes just about grinding out wins when you play poorly. 

Widnes lost to you by a point before and threw away a win vs Newcastle.  Also last week they lost by 1 point to Dewsbury. They'd be in a playoff hunt with a 4 point swing.  York 2019 also.   

All about getting players to peak for playoffs now.
