    Seems strange if the scenario of Leigh being promoted and London going down. Hopefully it works out regardless.

    Should never have been scrapped in the 1st place along with allowing Salford to do away with their academy setup.

    Leigh or featherstone could very well beat Toronto for promotion. London do indeed look doomed.

    London have a higher rated academy iirc, so theoretically the player pathway is there.

    The broncos academy sides all seem to struggle against the northern teams but they do produce a steady stream of championship and super league level players.

    I guess academies are about producing individuals not teams though. Through weight of numbers the northern teams should be able to find a half decent player in every position.

    This. And if the academy side is successful then that’s an added bonus.

    It will be interesting how this will operate as there are less than 15 division 1 teams

    And how it will be impacted during promotion relegation

    How was it working in the past ?
