Difficult to read anything into just one round of matches, but in that round ourselves, Saints and Leeds look likely contenders. Cannot read too much into Wigan loosing to ourselves, they did lose to a fine side and will get better.
Warrington were in truth well beaten by Saints, I was unsure just how good Saints played as Wire were pretty poor. Tony Smith needs a rapid turn around there if Wire are to contend, as for Saints, you can only beat the team in front of you and they did that comfortably. I watched the Hull Catalans match on Sky and though both sides showed some attacking promise I felt they were miles off the standard set by ourselves, Saints and even Wigan in their loss to us.
Of the rest, Wakey seem to be claiming some sort of moral victory over Salford, would rather have the two points myself, but it seems both sides happy with the start made. Cas and Widnes will also have springs in their steps this morning.
That leaves London and Bradford. A disaster of a start for both, London appear to have little chance of survival, but appear to be building a strategy of being strong in the middle 8 next season. As for Bradford, with a likely points deduction to come things look very difficult. How the mighty have fallen, but could be good news for the Giants as I can foresee a few of the bandwagon fans switching allegiences if we remain a contender. All successful teams have bandwaggoners, as iritating as they are, it is a sign of success and I am sure Messrs Davy and Thewlis will be only too happy accept their brass.
