Didn't it ever occur to the players to ask why?

Or did they ask and the club wouldn't tell them?

If they have to send the second best UK team to Australia, a stuffing is what they end up with!!

The League leaders after 30 games should have gone, not the winners of an end of season k/o comp.

The whole last two weeks has been a joke. Why should the Hull & Wigan supporters have to forkout £1000 or so to watch a game that should have been played in the UK? Why should the second best side in this country be playing in the World Series match?

Leeds won the GF last year thats why they have gone. Every year since 1998 the GF winners have played in the WCC. We know the rules before the season starts.

If Leeds had won the LLS last year and us the GF would you be saying Leeds should have played in the WCC. Instead of us ..... I doubt it.

This is serious, right?

You really think after our showing at Saints and then struggling to beat Widnes on our own patch we'd have given Melbourne a game? I'm glad we were spared the punishment in all honesty.

Seriously --- Surely it is time that the League Leaders are given the right to play in the World Club Challenge. Why not announce a change and as from 2020, the winners of the LLS play for the trophy.

If not, then why not two matches ---- the GF winners matched up and the LL matched up.

I know, fancy them getting us to agree to throwing the GF like that.

They are. It’s called the World Club Series. The qualifying teams are the GF winners (WCC), LLS winners and GF runners up, unless they’re the same team then the other sides are invited.

The WCS didn’t go ahead this year due to the fact that Aus sides weren’t willing to travel after the WC, hence why Leeds went across there.

I want Cas to finish 4th and win the grand final this year.

Curious to see how many people bleating on here will be demanding that Saints(or whoever wins the LLS) go instead of us... After whining so hard about it this year i expect people will be consistent.
