Aye- beaten by my nearest team today. 3 losses and a win (v Leeds Rhinos) for Wigan so far but with a 2 points deduction (appeal dues soon I think).

Broncos have started OK, winning 2 of their 3 home games so far. I'm hoping to get down there later this month to see them play Hull & maybe Hudd the week after. Leeds, Hudd & Wigan are all below Broncos at the moment but it'll be tough avoiding relegation for them this season I think.

Good to see Salford up there, but I fear it won't last...it never does. :(

Wigan have lost coach Shaun Wayne and players Sam Tomkins, John Bateman and Ryan ? Sutton since last season, they will all take some replacing and a transitional year is expected.

Same every year for Salford. Flying start, followed by an almighty crash after about 5-6 games.

They got a bit of a wrist-slapping though. £5k fine and £2k costs to pay & the 2 points deduction is suspended rather than eradicated. A bit of a sigh of relief from Wigan I guess - although the over payments only totalled £15k (less than 1% over the limit).
Only 2 points behind Broncos now.

They thought they were tied on last season until the Broncos beat them in the million quid game ... :D

Nothing's certain . apart from Wigan winning the grand final again. :D

Hey, Ashington! I don't run a travel agency, but Sir Bobby Robson's niece does just 2 blocks from my house. Do you want me to put you in touch with her? You could make a few quid off of this. Or maybe leisure would be more interested.

How come no-one has been on yet to say how they hate RL, that is boring and that this is a footy forum - or does that only happen to the cricket threads? ;)
