There's no chance of Halifax finishing lower than the Bulls and I can't see them below York and Newcastle either

I would think Halifax would consider anything lower than third as a bad season

Id agree with that but I woud also go as far as saying if we are no closer to a possible top 2 than we were this season that would also be a bit of a let down. Its probably our strongest squad since the 2010 Grand Final winning one and Ive no doubt we still have a couple of season long loans to announce closer to the time who will both improve the team.

This is why it's still hard to make predictions for 2021. Leigh are getting to a stage where they have a handy squad now, their two recent signings both look very good additions, but do they have any more good ones that they haven't announced yet? Also they've made it clear DR will feature heavily as well as loans so it will be interesting to see who is earmarked for them from Saints, they definitely need a bit more depth in the pack but they might get that from DR.

Sounds like Fax as well as Fev will have further announcements to make, maybe other clubs too. Really interesting season coming up.

Its going to be a cracking season that's for sure my prediction.

 

Top 4 (Championship Final could go anyway)

Featherstone Rovers 

Leigh Centuriions

Halifax Panthers 

Newcastle Thunder 

Bottom 

Sheffield Eagles

Workington Town

London Broncos 

( Broncos bottom dogfight between the other 2)

 

Surprise team Barrow Raiders (Just love Jarrod Sammut and even at 34/35 he is as fit as a butchers dog and pure class 🙂

Leigh still have at Least 2 more to announce. 
 

would make sense to keep Alex Gerrard. Good Prop, but any more additions need to be packmen. 
 

Amone is a wrecking ball. Looking forward to seeing him in action and Aekins can’t half shift. 
 

Great season ahead.

I would imagine Dan Norman and Danny Hill, Josh Sim or Tom Nisbett could figure from Saints if the first team stay injury free. Taylor Pemberton is getting big wraps as a young hooker but Leigh will already have Aaron Smith on loan from Saints. 

Taylor from Leigh East will be some player soon

Im not sure where he gets it from but I will say this, in my 30 odd years of watching Fax I can't remember a player who took the ball in as hard as his unlce Asa. 100mph every single time no let up.

I dont have Barrow down myself but one of Haven or Workington,  just not the player base there for 2 champ quality teams.

As SHEFFIELD have reversed the fixture due to delays with their stadium we now have 5 home games in a row , 6 out of the first 7 … all by the start of April ! I love  summer rugby 

Out of the last 10 games of the season we have 3 at home & 7 away

Who drew up the fixtures?? 

Stevie Wonder & Ray Charles?? 🤔

No. They have nothing to do with the RFL fixture list department. One of them is also dead.

As the season goes on and Newcastle are in the mix hard to see them not being able to exploit wigan link and checkbook.  

Leigh Fev Fax Thunder but the battle for those last two playoff spots between York Widnes and Bulls going to be huge.  Just shows the strength of division that finishing 6th in the playoffs has to be seen as a good year.

Widnes looking a lot better than last season? Ive not really been that impressed by their signings, certainly not enough to think they will finish above Batley.

 

I like Mimms and think hes a good Championship player but for those thinking we are suddenly going to find enough full time players to fill 6 teams, I think this is an example of how they are struggling in SL to find quality players to fill teams. 2x10 would serverly water down the product if all teams had to be full time.

Correct. The date is known to be July 30/31 though.

I do believe a meeting is taking place this coming week to vote on the Premier offer and when/if to have the Bash weekend.
