It will be between Widnes and Toronto with daylight between them and the rest of the league

Surely it can only be a player from Catalans. Probably the best RL side I have ever witnessed in this season's comp.

Your predictions aren't really the best though are they?

I'd love it to be Bradford, but I feel it will be Toronto.

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.

There'll be some Toronto players playing at London, Salford and Hull KR next season.

So i'll be putting my money on Bradford York or Toulouse now you've predicted that.

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

It's not the top side that gets promoted. There is a top 5 play off system like in SL so anyone in that top 5 can gain promotion.

I think Toronto would naturally be the favourites to finish as league leaders, but it's early days and there is a whole Autumn and Winter of personnel changes that are about to happen.

Widnes are an interesting one. I don't see anything there that would particuarly excite me - morale at the club seems to be rock-bottom and I can see some of their better young players being looked at closely by some Super League clubs.

It will be interesting to see how heavily the likes of Bradford and York back themselves, and Toulouse will be a team worth watching.

But when promotion comes down to an 80 minute play-off, I don't think there's much to choose between the top teams.
I wish everyone would read bramleyrhino's post two or three times just to get it through some thick skulls


Mr bramleyrhino speaks a lot of sense.

Is this "promotion series" going to be shown on Sky ?
There should be some cracking games in there, especially if Leigh and Fev can be competitive.
Unless the wheels come of a Toronto, you would have to expect them to dominate the league but, play offs can certainly produce a few upsets and there is no guarantee that that the club finishing top of the pile will gain promotion.

I would like to think so. The qualifier games were far more entertaining than the majority of the super 8 games this season.

Agreed.
Thankfully, it's all been consigned to the history books and we wont have to try and explain the system to anyone, ever again :D
