Powell desperate to avoid “madness” of percentage-based Super League table

With the news that Leeds Rhinos have had two games postponed in the last two weeks, Castleford head coach Daryl Powell is eager to stay away from the problems created in 2020.

Games were cancelled before Super League decided on a points-based percentage to get the fairest table at the end of the season.

That meant that teams’ finishing positions were calculated by the number of matches won by a club, divided by the number of matches played, multiplied by 100. But, Powell is keen to not have to go through that again.

“There’s an upsurge at the moment and it’s really hard; we’d come out of it and then we’ve got to be really mindful over the coming weeks.

“At the moment we’re not too bad, but you can’t afford too many cancellations if you look towards July and August.

“The last thing you want to see is the competition based on percentages which is madness.

“Leeds have cancelled their games and there’s an obvious difficulty when playing Catalans too, which we will be doing in the next few weeks.”
