And the 8's fixtures are out. Rovers are

Salford home.
Toronto Away.
Leeds away.
Halifax home.
London home.
Toulouse Away.
Widnes home.

Arguably the 3 worst games are first. But get a couple of wins and it should be easier.

Yes, 2 from the first 3 should be good. Leeds away looks tough after the travel to/from Canada however they were very ordinary on Sunday in the cup semi loss to Wire.

True, but we also have a week off between Toronto and Leeds for the challenge cup final. So that should help.
Not just being biased, but out of the SL clubs, ourselves have been in good for me and Salford. Look good. The other 2 just look poor, though if Widnes beat London tonight it will give them confidence

Ah yes, I had completely missed the week off for the final, good news.

I do agree Salford and in particular Widnes look vulnerable, if Widnes were to lose to London (I see it is 0 - 0)...scratch that they have scored 6 - 0) it would be nothing short of a disaster.

Unlikely i know but wins for Toronto and London this week will mean serious problems for Widnes and the Robins as i expect the Red Devils to beat Widnes

Going today. First time since Cas away. Last time this season. Looking forward to this game. Should be a good game, expecting a close game.

Yes and hopefully a win which should set you nicely for the rest of the 8's and effectively erase the Salford result.

I really wasn't expecting that game. As Rovers win ano exciting games 38-36.
Thrilling game. Great tries, bad defence. Exciting attacking play. Both sides throwing away winning positions. Now need to lie down.

How sweet it is.

Looking forward to see the highlights, wow.

That leaves the four on paper "easier" games Fax then London next at your place, Toulouse away and Widnes at home really is in the clubs' hands now.

It's a really good game. Not one for the purists. But was one of those were as a fan you go through pretty much every emotion.

Yeah it's in our own hands. Hope we don't ruin it. But given that the teams above us all have to play each other. Think we should be safe.

I have now seen the highlights, great entertainment. It played like both sides knew each others weak defensive points pre-game, great to watch! Fax at home today, should not really be a big problem assuming they concentrate.

Well got the win. But from the sound of it concentration wasn't great in the 2nd half.

The way fixtures have fallen really is a help. Should win our 2 home games (London & Widnes). The away game against Toulouse looks trick.

Two from three could well do the job however there is no reason from what I have seen that you can't win all. Toulouse are hugely entertaining and when all goes well could be a nightmare however they do not have a SL pack or defence, complete your sets, win the field position battle (kick/chase), win the game.

Would be handy if Salford could get a result at Leeds next week to make it more comfortable. Their cause not helped by having 2 sent off including the excellent Jackson Hastings yesterday.

Bad news today with Carney, Jewitt and perhaps with respect most significantly Quinlan out injured.

Yeah. It's more the time. With this competition you tend to need your best players. Makes the task harder, but with everybody playing everyone else the fixture lists favours us slightly.
Quinlan's out for along time as he's done his acl, and has joined Shaw,Lawler and Addy still out.

But we have cover. And hopefully they will step up to the plate now.

For F**** sake Rovers.
19 - 0 up after 30 mins. To then give such a bad performance we deserve to go down. Fair play Toulouse who deserved what they got, but for a SL side to turn in that performance after the start we had is disgraceful.

Only saving grace is for some reason through RFL, have put on every game next week on a different day. So by the time we play we will know exactly what we have to do. But really fear for us if we end up back in the MPG. Don't have the mental strength to see it through.

I have just seen the results, speechless at your score from 19 - 0 up.  Could still in your hands of course, ridiculous that the final games are on different days.

Trouble is if by the time we play it could also be out of our hands. And to be honest if the pressures on this group of players will fold. We played poorly most games.

Agree that it's ridiculous playing the games on different days. Way to kill the tension.

I find it extraordinary that the RFL have put on every game next week on a different day.

Toronto win however only by 1 point. A 13 point win v Widnes sees you safe otherwise MPG v London. I still think you will be ok, even if not safe after Sunday.

Best wishes to Shaun Lunt, hope he makes a swift and full recovery.

At the moment you would fancy the Robins to be safe with the Broncos and Wolf Pack fighting it out in the million pound game

That is how I see it yes, London confirmed in a MPG. Today's scenario is for Hull (I think anyway, I am tired!);

Win by 13+ = In SL.

Win by 12 or less = Home MPG v London

Lose by 8 or leas = Home MPG v London

Lose by +8 = Away MPG v London

Good luck today Luke.

Yeah you got the scenario completely right.

Think we have to do it today. Mainly because after 2016 just can't face another mpg

Good luck to you also.

Keinhorst, Lannon (3 years) and Hauraki (2 years) confirmed today, good signings. I believe Justin Carney is retiring, anyone else moving on?

Robins will need to strengthen more than just these to have a better season next season

Heffernan and minns obviously left during season. Donaldson and Salter both been told they can leave.

Rumoured Moss,Scruton, kavanagh, and quite a few others. We have 10 occ.
Apparently Crooks has signed a 1 year deal. And we not far off signing Hanbury (Quinlin who's been outstanding possibly not going to play at all next season due to injury), and Binning (Salford hooker).

Full released list (more will probably follow)

Chris Clarkson,
Ben Kavanagh,
Danny Tickle,
Kieren Moss,
Jordan Walne,
Bradford Clavering,
Liam Salter,
James Donaldson,
Matty Marsh.

Disappointed that Kavanagh gone as he has been good whenever given the chance. I like Moss but current management don't and he's slot of competition so not going to play much. And Danny tickle has proved me wrong this season.
The others don't really care about.

I will admit to being surprised by Kavanagh. Played well at Bradford and impressive for Scotland in last years' four nations. I have heard he may prefer part-time so a drop down to the Championship, if so I am sure there will be be plenty of offers.

Shame for Donaldson, with his spirit and how he recovered from two career threatening injuries I very much admire him albeit I will admit physically he can't compete with Hauarki of Tompkins in the back row.

I see Craig Hall and Nick Scruton (under-rated IMO) have signed for 2019, Hanbury would also be a quality signing.

Halifax are apparently favourites for Kavanagh. Like I said he's played very well.
Donaldson is whole hearted, gives his all. Problem is his size and his injury record. But I like him and fully hope that he gets himself fixed up with a SL club, top championship club.

Hanbury might not be coming. Apparently we quite far in negotiations with Carney staying and Dagger apparently going to be starting FB. And Blair who really has been superb in 4 years so far.
If we manage Scruton game time. Then yeah a good re-signing for the club. Hall was fantastic since returning from Leigh. Scored 14 tries and has improved. Still a talented player.
