It will be very interesting in the Championship next season with only the top side being promoted

How will Widnes (with their £500k parachute payment)
Toronto(With their dream of buying a SL place at all costs,With a sprinkling of NRL talent,but also a club stacked with mainly "SL has been's" at present and also a poor coach IMO in Rowley)
Toulouse(probably the best side to watch in the championship this year)
All shape up for their big chance of SL for 2020?

Which of these 3 clubs will go for the golden ticket and push the boat out next year, knowing full well that this could be their last chance saloon for a while of a chance of reaching SL ?

Which sides out of those championship clubs that don't prevail and make SL in 2020 will still be strong enough to mount a challenge for SL in 2021?

Thoughts and your predictions guys

Widnes I don't give a chance. Toronto for me will make it next year as long as they make the correct coach change

Likewise that’s key for Widnes, come up with a good coach appointment and they could be in with a shot however gut feeling is that it’ll be a bit of a meh appointment.

Anybody know of any front runners for the Widnes post?

There are a lot of rumours flying about that McDermott is being lined up to take over at Toronto, if he does that puts them as favourites imo. I don’t rate Rowley.

Widnes had £1.8M this year, they didn’t do too well with that. I don’t see them been a powerhouse with £1.3M less.

I expect Toronto to win the league at a canter again. However as we saw last week anything can happen in a one off game and promotion will be decided by the Championship Grand Final

Behind Toronto it’s up for grabs, Toulouse, Widnes, Halifax, Bradford, Featherstone, Leigh (if they are still in existence)

I don’t think Widnes will be as bad next year they were hit hard with injury’s & had to use a lot of youngsters. They will have learned a lot & with a bit of leadership will be stronger side for it. If Toulouse can get a couple of big forwards they will challenge. Toronto will have a big clear out I feel, so it will depend on who comes in & can the coach who ever it is make a team from the individuals.

FUnny that because I see Toronto and their fat mercenaries imploding big time - in fact I’ll give you a £10 bet for charity on it.
