    Bring on next season already Alf!.
    Hull Fc are 0 for 2 already and Lee Radford is getting sloshed in the last chance saloon even as we speak.

    Q2 is, what is the Magic Weekend ?


    The other thing is the convoluted play-off system, it seems to have a serious flaw to me. The QF game B, the loser plays in Game C and if winning the that goes to the PF, Game E. The winner of the QF Game B goes to Game D, and if winning that goes to the PF, Game E. Thus there is the possibility of Game E being a re-run of Game B. So, for example, you could get say Wigan beating Warrington in Game B. but losing to them in Game E, and thus Warrington, despite being beaten by Wigan in Game B, now beating them to make the Final. This seems bizarre to me, am I understanding this right ?
    Could one of you RL chappies answer my questions ? Or is it a secret, does no one know ?

    The "Magic weekend" takes place at Anfield this year on the 25/26th of May Sinky..This has been going on for many years now with places like the millennium stadium Cardiff(which I have attended and thoroughly enjoyed it ) Etihaad stadium Manchester ,Edinburgh and James park Newcastle being used..It gives the fans a unique experience of three games in one day and a chance to enjoy a weekend away..

    It involves all the twelve superleague teams ..Six play on the Saturday which involves three continuous games commencing at 2pm ,4pm and 6pm .. The same happens on the Sunday as well.. The results also count towards the league table ..

    The competition now guarantees one-up, one-down promotion and relegation in a 12-team competition. All teams will play each other once at home and once away, with the inclusion of six additional fixtures, known as loop fixtures, and the Magic Weekend. As of yet, no indication has been given to who plays who in the loop fixtures.

    Heres a breakdown of the play offs for you .

    Super League Play-Offs
    A top five play-off will determine the winners of Super League.
    Round 1
    Elimination Final: 4th v 5th
    Qualifying Final: 2nd v 3rd
    Round 2
    1st Semi-Final: Loser of QF v Winner of EF
    2nd Semi-Final: 1st v Winner of QF
    Round 3
    Preliminary Final: Loser of SF2 v Winner of SF1
    Grand Final: Winner of 2nd Semi-Final v Winner of Preliminary Final

    I watched St Helens slaughter Castleford on Sunday, on that evidence the Saints will take some stopping. The Child Bride has finally persuaded me to go to a game. Any suggestions?
