Mr. Hetherington is calling for an independent panel to choose a club for promotion to Superleague 2021 to take the12th. place.

Criteria include Good finances, Good Stadium, Decent (paying) attendances, good commercial potential and player production system.....

Who will it be?


Toulouse or London shouldn’t be a traditional or M62 club an expansion team to replace an expansion team seems only fair.....

If you want fairness then Fev should replace them.

I'd vote for Toulouse, it would make a better Anglo French league, plus it would also get up the OP's nose.

I could live with that but I'd also introduce the immunity on being relegated on their first year, just makes sense they are allowed to get up to speed

agree, and with the other parts of littlewayne's post.

BUT, I can't see it happening, TWP will stay in my opinion.

Yes I could accept that... from a logic point of view.

There's a lot of water to go under the bridge before next season in their case with all the issues they have at the moment, maybe it would solve some problems for the RFL if they did stay up, one thing for sure though if they don't what criteria do you use to select a club to go up, without showing any favouritism to a particular club.

Isn't it just as logical that the team they replaced (London)take their place as well.

or play 2021 as an 11 team SL and whoever comes 1st and 2nd in the Championship comes up. Or, if the RFL really wanted to get some big positive press, have a big event, 1st go up as of right, 2nd and 3rd play for promotion, bottom 2 of SL play to avoid relegation, double header at Cardiff (Covid permitting)...

There is no way that the Rfl will pick a club from the Championship without causing uproar from whoever didn't get chosen.

Either Toronto stay up or an 11 team super league.

However an 11 team super league would decrease the broadcast deal because of the reduced game per round.

Therefore I think Toronto will stay in super league but start on negative points.
