Got something to discuss about RL in general? Then this is the place to post it.

No surprise let’s be fair Leigh haven’t put together a 20 minute performance this season let alone a full game
Ran us close twice, I don't know what they expect a coach to do with their squad, it wouldn't shock me if they didn't win a game all season to be honest.

Ok 2 games that they where ok till half time then lost easily.

Now I don’t know Duffy nor his exploits but to me he’s a good solid championship coach the step up was always going to be a big one,as for the squad well again it’s a championship squad isn’t it and the results are showing that.

It’s a shame but they knew that when the (foolishly in my opinion)went after the vacant place it was a huge poison chalice and one that will bite them with relegation,as for Duffy I think he will bounce back not to damaged from this I hope

They were in a losing position from the off! It’s crazy they don’t get as much funding as the rest of the league & only introduced to SL late.

I feel sorry for any championship club that comes up as the step up in the intensity of games can be too much in one season.

That’s why I was always in favour of the 3 year licensing agreement.

And if they, the RFL, had maintained this & the rules regarding the grounds/stadiums, Castleford & Wakefield would been long gone! Pity that 😉
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.

I think you’re right Josie a 3 year licensing arrangement needs to happen quickly,I’ve always defended promotion/relegation in RL but to me it’s clear and the pandemic has hastened it I feel,clubs need that time to sort themselves out rather than the usual rush to sign the dog botherer’s,has been and never will be from down under

Briers?

Could be a good appointment to be honest

Henderson is like Marshall well thought of but untested at this level it’s not a job I’d go looking for that’s for sure
