Just seen a rumour on Twitter that playoffs will start on 18th June with 6pm and 8pm kickoffs.

Just a rumour though :)
If that's true then complete thorough fitness tests 3 days before the 18th and pick the fittest 11 players. Fitness will prevail as the key in these games. lockdown may not have been kind to some.

Leeds players apparently had to weigh themselves every morning during lockdown and report the results back to management! I'm hoping that the special team spirit we keep hearing about will have encouraged our players to look after themselves; Bowman certainly looks ripped in the videos on twitter.

As for team selection it's going to be a tough call deciding whether to favour the older players who may have the experience to cope with the unusual circumstances, or the younger players who might be more naturally fit.

Given that we haven't started contact training yet, the playoff dates are ridiculous. And 5,15 KOs too.

The thought of the play offs makes me shiver....But, hopefully we can go one better this time around.

Up the City.
