Leeds Rhinos may face a sanction for refusing to fly to face Catalans Dragons

The Rugby Football League has refused to rule out sanctions against Leeds Rhinos over the club's refusal to travel for their Super League fixture at Catalans Dragons on Saturday.

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

Its time that the RL faced up to the reality of the current situation.

Wrong if it happens. All they have to do is look around them

RFL shooting themselves in the foot if they proceed with this! Disaster PR and for the game reputation as a whole (especially after good reactions from die hard football fans over the weekend)!

If you were offered odds at start of the year on Wigan being top in mid-March or the RFL fining Leeds, which would you have backed?
