The RFL have introduced several changes to the OR's for 2016, mainly relating to the Championship and Middle 8's. The main ones are :-

The Championship finals day has been scrapped

Clubs can now register a squad of 30 players (was 25)

The signing deadline is 48 hours before a club's first fixture in the 8's

Dual reg players who have played 8 or more games for the partner club in the regular season can now still play for both parent and partner club in the 8's

Salary cap - 50% of club relevant income with provision to apply for dispensation to spend more subject to proof of affordability and provision of any financial guarantees at the RFL's discretion
