It is new, so you have to see how it goes. But 3rd season in and I don't think it works, and also isn't really fair.
The RFL should at least stick to the league format of deciding the qualifiers to stay up or go up, instead of the nonsense of MPG playoff. Top 4 SL, bottom 4 championship.

My preference would be bottom of SL play top of Championship in 2 legged playoff. Or at least one off game at neutral ground.

Also if Cats beat Widnes I just can't see how we will beat Widnes.

Didn't hear anybody whinging on here last year, and if it was top 4 SL bottom 4 champ we'd be stuffed now

We beat London by 30pts, we finish 4th. :wink:

We all know rules last and this season. I am suggesting for going forward.

I still think it's a great format and brings excitement and extra, much needed revenue to the clubs.
Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all rules and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence. In other words, it is war minus the shooting.

Well, if Widnes lost by 15 and we won by 15, we'd have them at home.

A more realistic option would be for Widnes and us just to win. Then it would be Cats at home, and I'd rather that was the scenario.
