I think the top 10 is a bit optimistic as, assuming that the second league will have 12 teams then:-
- 2 from superleague,
- 1 Toulouse
- 1 or 2 promoted
That only leaves space for 7 or 8 of the present championship teams who stay up this year so that will be the target for next year I suspect not just top 10! And potentially bottom 7 going down next year! Yikes
If you assume that the top 5 presently remain strong, Dewsbury get there act together and Crusaders (promoted this year) put together a competitive team then that really is going to be tough.
I don't mind stealing bread from the mouths of decadence.
