Yeah don't think we are in 'must win' territory yet as it is so close but definitely a very important game for us. Going with 0-1 defeat.

Three points feels important - got to stop the slide in form and the ‘time for new signings to gel’ argument is getting weaker. Hopefully JJ can show the ‘new normal’ is still playoff challenging form.

Atmosphere should be half decent too.
A4e-that was down to bad refereeing rather than needle between the players

Anyone expecting a bit of needle this evening after our win at their place included the red for Lewis and one for JJ too…? It was quite a heated game IIRC…

Rugby along with ladies, youths football over the past season! The pitch seems to have worn well. Not much sun on it is probably more detrimental.

Sorry if AR, but this is fascinating about Luton’s Tom Lockyer being fitted with a defibrillator [Link] He’s just 29, it’s so incredibly sad, and it must be such a hard thing to have to adjust to - hopefully he’s getting all the support he needs.

Does anyone know what assessment has been made of the impact on the football pitch?

Changing Man. I don't think there is any agreement with us that the Broncos have to pay for floodlight improvements based on the division they are in. Rather it is if the RL require the Broncos to improve the floodlighting the Broncos must pay. Similarly if we get promoted to a level the lights are insufficient (Championship?), we must pay

I suspect the Broncos have told the Super League to do one, since they won't be in the League next year, and floodlights only have a minimal impact on IMG's scoring system.
They will expand the competition (to 14).

OI-then they ban promotion/relegation as happens in rugby union

What happens when the 13th club gets an A grade?

It's not impossible for Broncos to get an A grade but it will take several years as they're starting from a very low base. They're not being stitched up - it's just they're a shitshow.

The lack of investment in commercial operations has come home to roost
The idea is to incentivise B grade clubs to attain A status (eg by building new stands, growing crowds, social media following etc) and therefore immunity from relegation. The carrot of Grade A status offers a lower risk profile to investment.

It's also a stick to force borderline A/B clubs to up their game or be excluded
That whole RL grading system is what you get when you let a marketing company (IMG) run a sport- seems a bit ridiculous. I am surprised that they are stitching up the Broncos like that, as I had thought that having a successful club in London was part of the strategy to try to grow the sport outside its “heartland”

(I'm joking, obviously the whole idea is monstrous and anti-competitive sport.)

I'd like to see a similar licensing system introduced for the Football League, which would see Franchise permanently relegated on the "did you steal a club?" criterion.

Hash - Without wanting to bore you to tears, it's a de facto licensing system ranking clubs on financial sustainability, crowds/following, facilities etc. If you're Grade A (currently Wigan, Leeds, Hull KR, Hull FC, Warrington, Catalans and St Helens), you're exempt from relegation. The other 5 making up the 12-team Super League will be Grade B clubs ranked 8-12. Broncos are ranked 24th.

They're so far off that they could win the league, cup and the Grand National and still be nowhere near being ranked a top 12 club
We should block them from playing until they've upgraded the floodlights

Thanks Hash for the clarification - here’s to a bumper crowd for them then.

Nick, my understanding is the answer to your question is 'both' so, yes, we should be pleased about them getting strong attendances.

I still don't understand this whole thing about how they are going to get relegated after this season regardless of what happens and why those regulations were brought in. Doesn't make much sense to me but anyway we have them in the super league for one season so lets make the most of it.
Do we know if we get a flat rent from Broncos or a share of the takings? (ie from a selfish perspective, should we be pleased or indifferent about them getting a strong attendance?)
