When we have the 2 leagues of 12 thats 24 teams (my maths skills are excellent) at the moment there are 37 teams in super league,champ and champ 1. So what happens to the 13 unlucky ones do they get shoved into a league together and forgotten about? The thread on the 2 leagues will have the answer im sure but I cant be bothered to read though 75 pages to find it.

The teams will be split into a north and south league. As for P&R I don't know.

There will be P&R from the new Championship 1 into the 3x8 merry go round. That I am certain of.

How will that work gav? Will their be 9 in the final 3x8? Or will the fifth team in SL2 not have to play in the final 3x8 which would make sense as they would definately not need to play in it as they would have none to no chance of being relegated.

Not an option. That'd mean a whole half season of no rugby for that one team.

It's time to park the camels.

I hope it works out I really do. Good to hear that coventry are able to take a step up. Thats another area for league to grow in.

Eh?

 

The bottom 8 will be battling to avoid a relegation spot to Championship 1 after the split.

Lol gav silly me its just you threw me when you mentioned the 3x8 merry go round bit I thought you were referring to the champ team joining that. So I take it the new champ will be run like the new SL1 will be? Or will the top club just come up with no play offs?.

Not sure on that one mate, although I would guess 1 automatic promo spot, with 1 promo spot to be won by a play-off series.

 

At least it gives the bottom 14 a full season I suppose!

Yeah true but I'm just glad there will be P&R for the champ clubs to get into SL2. By the way hope your club stays up this season mate.
