We’ve had a look at the latest re-structure rumours – and how a 10-team Super League could look, and what it means for those outside the chosen few.

Those reports came after the RFL, Super League and clubs held discussions on Friday about their attempts to re-align with each other.

Wigan kept their recent form going with a 50-6 win over Leigh, who remain winless at the bottom of the Super League table.

Toulouse won the top of the table clash with Featherstone to move clear at the top of the Championship; while Halifax continued their winning run by beating Bradford.

It was Yorkshire Day yesterday, so Owen Lockwood’s had a go at putting together a dream Yorkshire 13. Cheshire Day is on March 30th, by the way.

It’s obviously no, isn’t it?

Can’t believe he’s been lost from the game.

Great work from his father and son.

NRL clubs are standing firm with Australia and New Zealand over their refusal to travel for the 2021 World Cup.

  1. Can’t believe we are using technology to help the refs with a video ref and they are still getting it wrong the funny thing about it is it was the same ref that let play go on last week again against Warrington when josh kicked the ball out of marshes hands but kicked his head as well and he never checked it and then last night mr hicks was the video ref for the try which never was nobody watching that game can say he touched the ball down it was a disappointment again from hicks that’s two now in a week if players get something wrong they are banned but hicks will still be reffing next week after two mistakes which I believe cost both teams the points
