Who will KR beat mate?? As it stands, if London get the win PD sends KR down

Thanks Hudds
Could results go a certain way to drag either Leeds or Wakefield into 12th???

For Leeds to finish bottom:
* London to win twice (given PD) - including beating Leeds (or all 3 games if Leeds win one of other two games)
* Leeds to lose all games (bigger the margins, bigger the risk if other sides win)
* Wakefield to beat London (final game)
* Hull KR to beat both Salford/Catalans (again PD likely factor to send them down if they only win 1)
* Huddersfield to win 2 games from Hull, Saints and Catalans (PD again likely determining factor that would see them below Leeds if they only win 1)

If Leeds beat London then they are safe given London would need to overturn a -250+ PD in two games.

To all intents and purposes, Leeds are safe given the magnitude of what they'd need to happen for them to go down.

For Wakey:
* Wakey to win no more than 1 game, but would rely on London, Hudds and KR winning two games each and by sizeable margins to send them down (especially if the game Wakey win is v London) - and Leeds obviously picking up 1 win

* Wakey to win no games and London/KR to win 2 games each (London beating Wakey in 1 obvs) plus Hudds at least 1 game (by a sizeable margin). Leeds can lose all 3 but as long as they don't lose by a huge margin in each, Wakey go down on PD. PD likely to be defining factor and Wakey's is 100+ points better than others.

* Wakey to win no games and London (including beating Wakey), KR and Hudds winning 2 games each. Leeds can lose all 3 games but as per above, avoid getting tonked they stay up on PD should others win 2.

Wakey more at risk if they don't win any of their games but it relies heavily on PD, which I think is going to be defining factor on who stays up.

Personally, I think Leeds and Wakey are safe because what I witnessed of Hudds at the weekend would have me thinking they're currently in the hot seat to go down.

It's a three horse race for me - London, KR and Hudds. I can't see Hudds winning any of their remaining games, which opens the door for London. Theoretically, London could lose all 3 games but as long as they keep their games tight, and hope that Hudds get defeated by an accumulated 77 more points (and KR by only 19 points more) than them over their three games, they stay up on PD. Given the way Hudds aren't scoring and the rate they are conceding, that isn't entirely out the question.

London win 1 (Leeds, KR and Wakey) then it's between Hudds and KR for me. I believe KR will probably pick up at least one win (Catalans, London and Salford are their games).

This is how I see it going:

London - L L W (though I'd love to see them do W W W)
KR - L W L
Hudds - L L L

It is to be hoped so.
I've changed me mind a couple of times at least on cas's chances and I've been critical of Powell but he's a bloke I respect a lot watching the team on Sunday and yes I know how bad Huddersfield were I came to the conclusion that we still had a chance
Ellis just doing what he had to do freed up trueman he was looking to take the line on and make brakes down field whenever he could
Rankin is starting to play well matautia is playing in his right position
Wattsy should be back Millington and Holmes are playing well Jesse and Mcmeeken are two good players
Three tough matches coming up but i think we will win at least two of them

Powell seems happy that we have a tough end of season run in. Kind of agree with him in a way, if we do end up finishing top 5, then it means that we've beaten at least 2 of the top 4 to do that.

So hard to call at minute, at one point or other all 3 of London, Hudds and KR have switched from great wins to bad losses over the last few weeks, I wouldn't disagree though that at the minute Hudds look like they're in trouble.

Will be interesting to see who if anyone we sign from the club that goes down, as it seems to be one of our favourite recruiting ploys.............. :-k

Hopefully it would be Hudds then they have plenty of promising young players that would be worth taking a look at.

Can't see us signing many from London or KR.

We could actually be in pole position for McGillvary if Hudds go down given Hull have about 5 wingers, Saints have Makinson and Grace, Wigan have 4 good wingers, and Wire have Charnley and Lineham.

our chances of making the top five are very slim, we can look back over the year and think what might have been, the close matches we have thrown the points away by complete brain farts by a number of our players , lets hope next year we have learnt from this years mistakes

Our chances may be slim, but a couple of months ago many had written us off and were talking about us as relegation fodder
I’m still looking forward this season. We will need to reflect, but not quite yet.
