They should be ashamed of that display. Castleford they r playing, not the Aussie national team. How can a team become as bad as that? Sinfield a big loss but what is going on there?

Firstly Cas as yesterday are a team who will worry anyone when at full or near full strength.Coach is lets say no mug-is used to having teams/players of all abilities and plays the %s very well and knows the weaknesses of his team as well as strengths.
Leeds have been used to several attacking ball players going forward now down to one/two.The players who were able to take advantage of the chances/half chances last season are in reality not that good.Anyone can look good behind a winning pack(Peacock led).Sinfield et al not there anymore we will remember them but the rest of the treble winning team -doubt it J J Buchanan,Watkins etc if they played for a weaker team as now will struggle-not as good as they think they are or indeed the pundits think they are.I will always remember the class player who never played for the top team-Topliss Wakefield,Wood Leigh,Idle Bramley and know they were better than the also rans in pot winning teams.

I take it Leeds can't be relegated if they finish bottom?

They will go into the middle eights.Bottom 4 and top 4 of championship.If they finish 11 or 12 three home games 4 away v the other 7.League table top 3 to superleague bottom 3 to championship and 4 v 5 at ground of 4 to play in superleague loser to championship.So answer is not by finishing bottom but in theory if mess up in middle 8s. They cannot complain as they voted for this system .

Right so it's the same as last year - unlike league to keep the same system for consecutive years! Cheers.
