how do they calculate the win %

So if London win 1 / lose 2 of the last 3, thats W11 L8 D1  :- 55%

Haven win 3 thats W12 L9 D1 :- 54.5%

That gives London the spot by 0.5%

Broncos had a points reduction a few weeks ago as a result of not travelling to Toulouse earlier in the season, consequently their win% is worked out as though they have one less win.

yea forgot about that.

Haven then have to beat Batley / Fax / Bradford to qualify

They do that they will deserve there 6th spot.

Ofc London could beat York, but even with the win vs Sheffield today, I don't see London winning more than 1 out of 3 remaining games

God Widnes just when you thought they had turned a corner.  End of season cannot come Quick enough for them. They have 3 winnable games though. 

Would rather play London than Haven or Batley in playoffs atm. Some great end of season fixtures right now for the playoffs.

I have seen my Club get many hammerings at Widnes, especially pre SL when they had a great side. There is no pleasure in seeing their current struggles, hopefully things will improve for them in the future.

Personally I were not surprised that Haven got the win more just the manner of it. I said last week how bad Fax were, completing 1 set of 6 in the whole 2nd half, and it was more an indication of that rather than been impressed with Widnes. Im not sure the quality is about and available to enable Widnes to put themselves in the playoff picture next season. They may need a number of years to get fully stable at this level before they can think about getting near to challanging at the top.

The season they came down they kept crowds of around 4000, hate to see them drift away. Hoping for a more competitive season for them next year.

I think they should have enough to put themselves in the playoff mix but it all depends on what crowds come in next year.

It's overall points not wins. Otherwise you would have to discount the drawn matches, it also then includes the 2point deductions for London and Featherstone. I built a spreadsheet to run through the various end of season scenarios...(yes, I really am that much of a geek)

Agree. On the basis of the above, London's percentage would be 52.5%. Being 10.5/20.

No but wage spend is shown in all sports to correlate with finishing place. Without a backer, income generated is the best chance to increase that.

Batley are the exception this year that proves the rule and are in 5.  The two biggest spenders are 1,2 and arguably the 2 lowest are relegated.
