When playing a game really means something.

"It's a scary one when your mortgage is due to come on the first of the month and you're playing in a game where you might not have a job the week after," said Wakefield captain Danny Kirmond when speaking about the play-off game against Bradford Bulls.

This rather neatly sums up one of the major differences between football and rugby league, there are very few wealthy players in league, none at all who compare financially with the big earners in football, and also none at all who fake injury or try to get opposing players sent off.

Roll on the new Super League season.
