The Championship is to increase to 14 clubs from 2019, will Super League follow?

Presumably not if they are saying 3 up and 1 down from League 1 to make a 14 team Championship. IMO we are at an opportune time to expand SL whilst we have a strong Toronto, Tolouse and London with Bradford and York both looking ready plenty strong enough to go in the Championship.

I wonder if your chairman will stop throwing a tantrum stating that the structure shouldn't change now Bulls would be a beneficiary.

Sounds like he's actually rejected it. We'll still be accused of being the RFLs pets etc if the RFL push it through ;)

Is there a link stating this?
We can be bold enough to make a stand and do battle for our views and beliefs. But we must strive to be mature enough not to resort to unnecessary personal attacks upon people with opposing views.

Where does this leave League One? Will more new clubs be added to make up the numbers?

Mick Gledhill (Bradford journalist, well clued up) put it on facebook. I can't go on there from my work laptop to link it.
