Today Leeds Rhinos will make Rugby League history, but not in a good way. They will be allowed to pick who they play in the Playoff semi-finals. They will choose between; St Helens Catalan Dragons Wigan So in effect, assuming Leeds pick an easier opponent in Wigan and Catalan, the RFL or whoever they are called, have totally ruined the chance of a new champion. Its jaw droppingly stupid, whats wrong with a normal draw like in all other sports. At least that way if Leeds do get Wigan or Catalan they got them b lck and not by their choosing. To be fair to Leeds they themselves have aired their dissapointment with the system, Lee Peacock branding it "a gimmick too far". I hope Leeds do pick St Helens as that will be an epically good game and that if they don't the likleyhood is they will play them in the Final anyway.
