This week, host Rod Studd is joined by Rugby League World Editor-in-Chief Matthew Shaw, Golden Boot winner Garry Schofield and Rugby League fan Ron Knox.

  • After a sensational session in the qualifiers, who now looks likely for life in the top tier?
  • And spare a thought for Widnes who are heading South with a £500k parachute payment but wait…what if they have to share it?
  • Schoey tells us what’s wrong with London, Hull and Widnes while telling us what’s right with York.
  • Plus the Dream Team and Man of Steel and yes – Schoey finds fault with the latter!
