a bit barmy to me, you can win 20 out of 20 finish top by 10 points then be 5 points ahead in a play off game until the last min, get beat by an injury time try and not get promoted...crazy

you may as well take it steady all year then go for it in the playoffs, the crazy RFL do it again

Agree with you guys totally, but my understanding that this is for this season only, due to number changes above. Next year is two up, league winner and GF winner.  Can see you guys winning lge by long way anyway, so hope for your sake worst case scenario does not happen. Obviously I want us (All Golds) to go up but can not see it happening!

Seems a bit crazy so better win the play offs. The only good thing is that you can see the final and the presentation afterwards.

Old news-- put this on the Forum about 2 weeks ago when I asked the question-- why bother with the league games ? -- just have a knockout competition about August.

Full details not yet known, but it could be that the league winners go straight into the Gran Final, also how many teams would be involved in the play offs. ?

Do you want to finish top then? if you have to wait perhaps 3/4 weeks to play in the final while your opponents have played each week it puts you at a big disadvantage IMO. Of course the other way is you can easily get knocked out. Why can't the RFL keep it simple, top goes up!

but by end season that might have changed again and no promotion at all. who knows they dont do they the useless sh.its

Since when do the administrators of just about every sport use common sense? If there is an obvious easy way or a complicated, supporter displeasing way then this is the one they always choose.

Strictly speaking, promotion via the GF is the 'fairest' way of doing it, because of the uneven league fixture lists.

 

I completely understand the frustration though.

It's great for york!!! we could get a few injurys before the grand final, then have a very off day and york have a very good day. Then you might have a chance of promotion

The same could happen the other way round too mate. I wasn't being biased, just saying what the reasoning behind the decision was.

Last year we, Oldham, were second by a clear nine points. Lost in the final. That's the way it can go and We had to wait nearly a month without a game before the play offs.

Yes but the club that was top of the league got promoted and didn't have to appear in the play offs.

Not a big deal for me to be honest if we are good enough to be top of the league then we should be good enough to win the GF either way am looking forward to the season

and mine. The only positive about all of this is at least everyone knows where they stand before a ball is kicked.
