Widnes have been deducted 9pts for going into administration. Will be interesting to see what type of squad they pull together.

I  don't  think  they'll  be  many  playing  for  Widnes  this  season  as  there  was  last  year.  At  the  moment  they've  only  retained  a  handfull  with  many going  to  other  clubs.  Looking  at  their  website  they  are  linked  to quite  a  few  to  return  but  its  more  wishfull  thinking  on  their  fans  part  than  anything.

What this shows is that the RFL are a bunch of corrupt, hypocritical Bas****s who are only concerned about themselves. On one hand they preach to clubs that you can't be considered for SL unless your finances are sound and on the other hand they let Widnes off with a 9 point deduction for complete financial incompetence and malpractice. They should be in NL2 at best with a 9 point deduction. If a club goes out of business then they should start at the bottom and have to work their way back up again, just like Accrington Stanley had too in football (didn't something like that also happen to Sheffield). What kind of example does this set too others? Just throw caution to the wind and if it all goes belly up, get a new sugar daddy and have another go!

What a bunch of toss**s!!!!

The RFL have applied the rules as they stand - it's not their fault if you don't like them

Clubs can vote to change them if they want to

Surely the RFL come up with the rules! that's their job.

I feel the main problem is that SL have the most say in what goes on in RL including Super league etc therefore those votes from NL1 and NL2 wont carry much weight when it comes to any proposal/rule, is it? SL decide the rules ???? ??? ??? ??? ???
