    Can't believe Les Cats would be risked. Lunacy.

    That's the system. Can;t go changing it every time an 'important' team f**ks up.

    I like the 8's system. Keeps things interesting.

    The season length is my main criticism of it.

    This is just super league.... championship & league one is yet to be decided,though it wouldn't have shocked me if the RFL asked the SL chairman to vote on what the championship & league 1does!

    Is Cats a real chance of going down?

    I would say more than likely they will be in the million dollar game and then anything can happen

    I don't mind the Super 8's but agree the season is way too long.

    If Cats go down does everyone realise that we will have Toulouse, Catalans, Toronto and London in the championship next year. Is it ever likely that all will get to SL at the same time? It is pretty important that they are there.

    Also, if Bradford go straight back up to Championship in 2019, how close would we be to having a fully professional second teir?

    Someone on the Oldham TRL messageboard is already calling the championship "the world league" lol

    Are Toulouse even full time in the same ball park as a London or Hull KR?

    Yes and no.....what kinda answer you want?

    I bet down there in the south of France they operate the old scam of paying the player $50k but paying the wife/girlfriend $100k to work behind the club bar!

    A yes or no would suffice.

    2nd division pom league might just be the most diverse Rugby League in the world. If some clubs took lessons from the Wolfpack they might find themselves richer than some Super League clubs!
