    Glad Walmsley’s ban was reduced to one game!
    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.

    It's been announced on the our league app.

    The Salford v Wakey game is to decide who finishes 7th as that team will be on standby for the Play Offs.

    We've got two weeks off now and then a straight Semi final. Not ideal really.

    At least we've now got (hopefully) two meaningful matches to finish this nightmare of a season.
    Saints should offer 20,000 to Huddersfield if they win on Friday!

    And we all know how that ends. Then Warrington lose to Wigan in the Final.

    Wigan have one more game to play. If they lose we finish top if I read this correctly.

    That’s correct.

    We will have the same win % but far superior points scored difference

    Yeah I know but I can't see Huddersfield troubling a highly motivated Wigan side. Hope I'm wrong....

    You can't present the shield unless everyone has played equal games.

    Not true, that's the whole point of the win percentage being in place.

    Saints, Wigan and Warrington will have all played the same number of games (17), so seems pretty fair to me.

    Saints and Woolfe must have known this was coming, so I would love an explanation why we chose to throw the points away against Salford on the gamble that they would beat Wigan?

    I think they had to drop the percentage because Catalan couldn't complete the 15 game requirement due to time scales. So by allowing Catalan to be in the top 6 play off the percentage has probably become null and void between the top 2.
