In Topic: Super eight or relegate?

and yet it was felt necessary that the reintroduction of P+R be accompanied by an increase in the overseas quota. That's pretty compelling evidence.

What increase in overseas quota? Only change this year compared to last is championship clubs being brought into line with SL clubs quota wise. Numbers for SL are same as last year.

Isn't the Wakefield profit pretty much the same amount as the extra funding clubs got when new sky deal was announced? Suggests they budgeted to break even and extra central funding has pushed them into profit.

Nothing as been confirmed yet about the home and away bit. But its been muted the champ clubs will play 4 home games and 3 away games. With more SL clubs at home than away but that's just what the RFL say may happen but nothing's been confirmed so in theory yes we could end up playing 4 SL clubs away from home ( that's if we make the top 4 next season of course) which I'm having my doubts whether we will or not. Just waiting for some quality signing announcements from the club fingers crossed lol.

Format after split has been confirmed. The fixtures are home and away fixtures are predetermined according to finishing position. There's a document floating around that spells it out in detail. Someone produced a possible fixture list on one of other threads for a given set of finishing positions.

Thats a long preseason in anyones books

Not as long as it looks. Bradford are trying something new with pre season this year. Rather than one continuous block of training, we are starting earlier but breaking it up into a series of targeted blocks with regular breaks in between.

I seem to recall reading somewhere that Featherstone were also planning or at least looking into having a full time team.
Correct me if I'm wrong, and if I am I apologise.

They were before they fell out with pro biz guy. Think full time plans went by wayside when he went.
