#2865650 The never-ending League Restructure debate (Many merged threads)

I'm guessing here, but, I think this system is a temporary measure to try and bring the quality of the leagues closer together before moving onto a more traditional leafue structure.

The top 4 championship clubs playing Super League quality teams will be better for the game when the Championship clubs experience that top flight competition.

So our super league stars, who could be international quality be potential play against semi pro outsits from the championship if there team finishes outside the top 8?? ... Ie-Halifax, feartherstone, Sheffield,Batley???
I'm sure rangi chase can't wait to test himself at mount pleasant
Not sure that's the kind of standard he wants to play at
Unless I've got this all wrong???


The aim is that Championship go full time as well. Jon Wilkin mentioned that a few months ago too in his players union interview (mentioned something about giving players a second chance at full time).

This new system is just the end of year play offs I understand, so if Chase' team did finish below 9th theyd still be playing instead of the 5 week break before internationals.... surely that point is a winner?
