  1. SL will be happy if the Wolfpack disappears. They would be happy if Catalans did the same.
    Ahh the future of a few 1,000 on a wet windy night at Salford playing Huddersfield with an uninterested population is the way to go. Minimal tv coverage and minimal media involvement.
    That’s what appears to be the future of the game.
    Sad but nothing is coming forward to say different.
