    At the latest meeting of the RFL Committee it was brought to the attention of the members that the odds of a team outside of the Super League winning the Challenge Cup was 500/1. The shock around the table was palpable upon the realisation of such short odds. Therefore after discussion, The RFL have confirmed the following staged changes to the format of the competition presently known as the ‘Challenge Cup’. 2019 - No amateur teams to be included. The RFL concluded that this would be beneficial in two ways. Firstly, it removed the obvious false expectations of the junior teams in these clubs that one day they too may play and test their prowess against a professional club, secondly it removed the onerous burden of managing the extra revenue. 2020 – Only teams in the Super League plus 4 others as selected by the RFL Committee (perhaps Toulouse, Toronto, New York etc.) will compete for the trophy. The quarter–finals, semi-finals and final to be played in a neutral country over a 2 week period. Jamaica or the Seychelles have been mooted. It will of course be necessary for a full compliment of the RFL Committee to oversee the successful implementation of the event. 2021 – The trophy to be re-named ‘The Sky Super League Cup’. The competition will consist of the League Leaders Shield Winners Vs The Grand Final Winners. In the event that it is the same team the trophy will be sent by Parcel Force to their ground. 2022 - Trophy to be awarded at end of the season to the club that has sold the most pies based on pie/attendance ratio. (Please note. Quiche does not qualify as a pie.) The RFL believe these changes will once and for all remove the unhealthy expectation that the competition belongs to the fans. And will finally enable the total and absolute degradation and annihilation of this once proud competition. Having finally achieved our goal after so many years, the RFL Committee believe it reasonable to award themselves a substantial bonus relevant to their performance. Seriously though, why can't we have a full blown all inclusive cup competition? Qualifying amateurs and all teams from the 3 leagues go in the hat at the same time?

    Cup Draw Rd 6

    Whitehaven away to Catalans! What a bloody awful draw! And we missed a cracker by the skin of our teeth! Warrington at home! The format still seems inherently unfair. The top eight SL sides play 4 games to win it! Is it really winning it in spirit?

    Toal Brothers

    I was surprised that neither of the brothers were selected for the Featherstone game. We missed Dan's power in the middle and Shane's speed on the wing today. Are they both injured?

    Toronto at home

    Fair play. Nice gesture. A good lift for Kells. Be same for Barrow then?

    Toronto at home

    Which was a smashing bonus for Toronto!

    Toronto at home

    Warrington at home was a cracking draw! Toronto go away with half the gate money without bringing any fans! Bloody rubbish!

No doubt there are valid arguments for and against. 🏈🏈🏈🏈🏈🏈

    This is what happened Sunday.

    In the first half of the game against Toronto the bar on the popular side ran out of both draught lager and/or either cider/bitter. The food bar ran out of steak pies in the first 15 mins. Leigh this weekend. Will probably bring 800 fans. Can we feed and watter them? Money to be made!

    Stardard set then?

    The exceptionally performance today has set the standard for the season? We now expect what? If that can be achieved today is it reasonable to expect that performance every week?

    Season Ticket

    Ok thanks Pete. That clears it up. End of discussion for me!

    Season Ticket

    So why is season ticket £180? 11 x £15 = £165. What am I missing TMF? sorry for being a bit slow! Advertised as 14 Home Championship Games. Where's the other 3?

    Season Ticket

    The £180 I have just paid for "14 Home Championship Games" does not include the 3 friendlies surely? 11 home games in the Championship is £165. Please tell me I am wrong! If I am not I will be cancelling the season ticket tomorrow!

    Final Position

    Stay up, be financially sound, and see marked improvement in the development of the young players and academy side at the end of the season would merit a successful outcome for the season.

    New York City RL

    Applied to join Championshjp. Not sure how that works? Barrow fans will have to join the frequent fliers club! Toulouse, Toronto (perhaps), New York, Catalans.......

    2017 Championship crowds

    Don't know if you have seen this article Captain Survival? It shows the massive difference in revenue paid to the clubs. http://www.totalrl.com/ins-outs-super-leagues-lucrative-new-tv-deal/ I wonder how some of the Championship clubs survive on there gates!
