Could be a last minute change that sees us go up automatically in 2nd place.

If it's true I'm sure it won't be long before we see some coming along claiming that it's because we didn't finish top, RFL pets etc...

We could run a sweepstake. I'll open the bidding at 9.58 seconds after confirmation.

Full article.

Proposals have been tabled to Championship and League 1 clubs to expand the Championship to 14 teams next season as part of the plans to revamp the domestic league structure – which would include three teams, rather than two, being promoted from League 1 this year to increase the size of the competition.

The RFL have levied a proposal to Championship and League 1 clubs which includes expanding the second tier by two extra teams next season.

TotalRL can reveal that while the RFL and its member clubs have not yet signed off on any league structure following further meetings this week, it is thoroughly expected to get enough votes to go through.

If that happens, it means a number of dramatic late changes will be enforced into this year’s format in both Championship and League 1 that will have huge ramifications on both competitions. They are:

Only the side finishing bottom of the Championship will be relegated instead of the bottom two; 11th will now survive.
Rather than the side finishing top – currently York – automatically gaining promotion, the side finishing second – currently Bradford – will also go straight up.
The play-off series including the sides finishing between 2nd and 5th will change to the teams between 3rd and 6th, with the winner gaining the third and final promotion spot.
The huge changes would mean that Bradford, who are six points ahead of third-placed Workington with four games left, would be all-but assured of automatic promotion instead of having to face a play-off campaign after York usurped them at the top at the weekend. York would need one more win to now be guaranteed of Championship rugby in 2019; given their superior points difference, the Bulls realistically would only need the same.

None of the changes would have an impact on promotion and relegation to and from Super League this year. The top three sides in the Qualifiers will be joined in the top flight by the winners of the Million Pound Game.

100% Chalmers already knew this was happening. Not that it matters, but when you look at it this way everything that got announced in the past week or two makes a hell of a lot more sense.

Is there time for us to screw up second place yet?
Never trust a man who, when left alone in a room with a tea cosy, doesn't try it on.
