Not sure what they expected of him, joining SL at the last minute with little preparation and less money.We copped loads of thrashings at the start of SL in 2012 despite having nearly a year to prepare.Then again Betts was protected by no relegation.
I think they should be allowed to stay up regardless of their position.
Why? If Salford finish bottom, should they be allowed to stay up? Leigh fans are counting on no relegation, but I recollect SL confirming that there would be automatic relegation for team in bottom spot.
Correct. Which is why the melee for replacing Toronto in SL was largely pointless. Whoever went up was probably coming back down.
That said, another U-turn wouldn’t exactly be a shock would it?
They absolutely should not change the rules mid season. Most other sports don’t do it. Good luck to Leigh, they got dealt a bad hand due to the protectionism of the other clubs and I hope they stay up by not finishing bottom. They probably won’t but it’s certainly not all over for them yet.
