Would rather have had York's season than Widnes'. 

I’d rather have York’s squads than Widnes’. But if I were a york fan, I’d have gone today just hoping for a bit of fight.
 

That 100-4 game was a freak day where the full time team had most things stick late in the game against a busted, depleted side. I had a lot of sympathy for them.

But today, the york team looked like they were looking for shortcuts once it got to 18-0. I just don’t think they gave themselves a chance to compete.

People maybe saving cash for game that isnt a walkover. I don’t blame York fans for not paying to watch a foregone conclusion, I have watched enough. Another benefit of 14 team SL is we wouldn’t have one team buying the Champ every year. Hope Fev vs Batley is a better watch. 

Credit too the york fans that travelled cheered there team till the end, and also credit yo ghe leigh fans that applauded them for there 2 trys.

how does 4 additional quota players translate to 64% of the squad having to leave exactly? Of the 24 players currently at the club, 12 are currently on deals for next year and beyond, with potentially another 1-3 retentions to be announced depending on the outcome of the application for Lachlan Lam to be quote exempt due to playing his junior rugby at Wigan St Pats. This idea Leigh are going to have to make wholesale changes is a myth perpetuated by fans too lazy to do the most basic due diligence and look who is/isn't contracted for next year.

Played his junior Rugby at St Pats? When Adrian Lam left Wigan Lachlan Lam was 6. I'm fairly certain that St Pats didn't have even have kids teams at that sort of age back then.

Usually do for players who didn't stop trying , well done to the York lads , I'd still take Jordan Thompson for another year , a true warrior who inspires those round him

Adrian Lam was Cronulla assistant in 2006 so he must have started playing at St Pats in 2003 aged 4, yeah right 😂. Fair play if Leigh pull it off but it would be a joke if the RFL approve.

I hear Leigh have called in a favour from St's for Mike Rush to put the case forward😉

I'm watching the replay of this game and I have a question. At the start when the teams come onfield and line up with the kids in front of them, what club was that shirt the kids were wearing?

Green, yellow and black horizontal stripes. Nice-looking sports club jumper.

That's true laws are laws, but hang on a mo, didn't he go back to junior RL in Sydney before coming to Leyth? Hope I'm wrong.

He played in the Group 6 competition with Thirlmere Roosters for a while before heading to Leigh.

I find some of the criticism about the way Leigh have done things a bit rich, given how much stick they took last time they joined SL at very short notice and were on a hiding to nothing. They've clearly decided that they weren't going to get caught out the same way again, and good luck to them, the owners have no doubt financed a fairly big loss this year to ensure they got promoted and I'm sure they have a plan for a squad to stay up.

This is Leigh, they are damned if they do and damned if they don't.

As you say they were called last season finishing bottom - albeit some fans of other clubs vented their dissatisfaction at the reduced funding, and this season they have apparently speculated to much and spoiled the Championship.

To be fair Leigh have only done what any other championship side would have done with the opportunities they had at their disposal .
