I heard it explained the other day that the bottom SL club definitely goes down but the Championship have a play off such as this - Top team goes straight into promotion play off final and the other 4 2-5 play off for the second team in the promotion final.

This means the league stays alive till the end if we get a walk away winner as this year with Toronto. Places 2 right down to mid table will still be fighting to get into the 4 team play off and keep their dreams alive.

I have to say that I like that idea as it will keep hopes going even if we are say 5th or 6th half way through the season and one team is miles ahead at the top. I still feel deep down though that the top team should go up but the others have a bit of excitement along the way and sky still get their £1m play off game.

I am happy with it if it works out that way but feel unsure about the long term funding for lower clubs after the next TV deal. The SL clubs do have a selfish agenda in my humble opinion and that will not become fully clear for 3-4 more years. We just need to make sure we build our own income stream to make up for that and try and become one of those super dooper league clubs along with those Giants in the game such as HKR, Salford, Hudds and co.

Well at least if we are promoted it will be on merit, or by beating the lowest placed Championship club according to the latest announcement.

Indeed. Althought considering we're the RFL's pets, we're the only club who hasn't really benefitted ;)

So, potentially 3 Lg1 clubs in Championship next year.

So.... wtf is going on?

I genuinely have no idea at all. Mick tweeted that we are automatically promoted. But then apparently that is not true.

Can someone please explain? And I have read all of the press but still have not a clue.






(and I feel fine)

Can't understand why they don't just promote the winners of the league and decide the other promotion spots on alphabetical order.

At least that would be easy to understand.

So York go up. We play whoever finishes 5th. If we win that we have a final against whoever won the 3rd v 4th game.

If we win that we go up.

If we lose that we play the bottom placed championship team. The winner stays in or joins the championship.

Just a thought to chuck in. As we have all known when season ends and presumably it's now extended by one week let's hope we haven't got a load of players on pre booked holidays! Also assuming the champ and league 1 seasons finish on the same day does this mean Rochdale, assuming they finish bottom, get two weekends off whilst team are playing two qualifiers?
