Agree. Whether or not Sheffield win the QF, the point will be unproven.
one off games against a weak super league side are hardly a pointer as to how well a championship side would fare in super league, i think there is too massive a gap between the two divisions which is unbridgeable for many teams.
Obviously, in a traditional promotion scenario, the promoted team has an opportunity to strengthen the team. In this mid-season re-jig proposal, it doesn't. And that's the big problem for me. I just don't see how it can work. Even if you slip the top four championship teams a wedge to bring them up to speed with the other four clubs in the middle eight, who are they going to sign that will improve the team ?
Someone suggested (on the Halifax forum) that clubs might not need to sign players - just have the existing squad go full time. But who's going to drop their day-job for a couple of months ? And will any improvement be instant ?
