On that respect don't the LONDON Broncos get really *bad attendances if it judged per capita, which is the reason you have started this thread that there is not enough people in your eyes who live in Featherstone.

Now tell me from the last document of Framing the Future which was the basis of allowing teams to complete in SL tell me how you would expect Featherstone Rovers to fall foul of qualifying, but before you start to list the criteria that they can not comply with, just consider the present SL incumbents who would also fall foul and have to leave our premier division.

I will confidently say when Featherstone win next Sunday they will be playing in SL next season, they will not be denied a place that would be simply because other SL teams would also not tick all the boxes.

*It has already been mentioned on another thread today, per capita your club is the worst supported team in SL.

Some sense at last ,if Toulouse win ( and should do at home and full time)  good luck to them but this is Featherstone and we will give it our best and WILL deserve their place in SL. If we mange to win.

Largely irrelevant in a P&R structure as on field results trump all of that

Little wonder that some clubs want to pull the drawbridge up and have a super league closed shop

What was the result when Toulouse played Fev this season at Post Office Road?

Juvenile post. Fev offered to play the return fixture. Toulouse declined. I can understand why.

It's all down to next week now. I'll live wi that

At least Fev would bring income to other clubs with plenty of travelling away fans. French teams just bring extra costs to all other Super League clubs.

Plus there’ll be an extra 75 Sky dishes sold  if Fev go up.

The thing is we’ve tried the heartland only model and it doesn’t grow support. The attendance at the french clubs matches or exceeds existing M25 teams. The last time anything exhilarating happened in SL was when Catalan and TWP joined. I’ve nothing against Fev but if we’re basing the future of the sport on a couple of hundred away fans I give up.

It won’t be a disaster. Regular Yorkshire derbies in packed stadiums - be nice if To get promoted…but not a disaster.

There are currently 4 teams in West Yorkshire. How many of them play on packed stadiums when they're against each other?

Yeah I imagine Headingly will be packed to the rafters when Fev come to down, and Huddersfield.

Come on Fev ! Shove it right up em! 

What a pathetic start to a thread. Why do Castleford even bother !

Us Leythers are right behind you. Best of luck 👍

What's point in the Championship if there's nothing to aim for ?

Agreed, the team who wins per the rules of the competition go up, franchising is garbage.

Toulouse have looked the best Championship team that I have seen this season albeit on limited evidence & I hope that they win next week but if they lose to Fev then that’s not a problem and Fev will have won their place in SL fairly and in line with the rules in place

Absolutely   

Get it done. If you don't, we will look forward to the battles ahead endure the expansionists moaning that Toulouse need a decade to get up to speed in SL as they get walloped week in week out !

If Fev go up, long overdue.

I’d like to see 2 up 2 down, one doesn’t give enough teams a chance to improve themselves and doesn’t get rid of dead wood in SL quick enough. At the very least the champions go up, bottom go down and second play second bottom in the MPG.

Not for me, at least not in a 12 team league. You'd have half - or even more - of the league with their focus on the bottom rather than the top. That's not going to help the quality of play improve.

AS for 'dead wood' this season would have been Salford - a club that has been in the GF and the CC Final in the last few years. Hardly fits with the definition of 'dead wood' IMO

Get SL to 14, or preferably 16, teams, then I'd be happier to see 2 up 2 down.

Yeah definitely 14, 12 isn’t enough, too many boring repetitive fixtures. However I do think the current turnover is too low.

Definitely and good luck to Toulouse if they win they deserve to go up.

Well that's because many of the teams that go up aren't good enough, and come straight back down

Having two teams go up and then come straight back down isn't much of an improvement!
