Craig Poskitt has talked more sense in this one article than I have heard from the RFL in the last decade.

For Fevs and the games sake if you have to wait until 2015 then they better let you in or give you a fair chance of getting in otherwise there may well be a few BOD's think what really is the point and call it a day.

Don't know what the conditions are, but they should start with them paying back a huge slice of their debt, for the sake of all clubs that owe money, or may wish to borrow in future. The RFL seem to be putting out a statement that clubs can go to the brink of bankruptcy and still remain in Super League, so who in their right mind would lend money to any Rugby League club?

It could also be a ploy by the likes of Cas, Salford, Wakey, and any other club in danger of losing their licence at the next round. They now have a sacrificial lamb.

Promotion and relegation will be introduced before 2015. Wakefield have got another delay with the Newmarket Project http://www.wakefieldexpress.co.uk/news/local/more-wakefield-news/wakefield-wildcats-ats-fans-have-to-wait-for-new-stadium-decision-1-4926784 ,Castleford will not have a new ground before 2015, Salford and Bradford are struggling financially.

good

Good for Rovers. I'm enormously relieved that they haven't been called on to take a spare place in Super League. The resultant damage could have been severe.

Not sure it's good for Bradford to be put back into a situation in which they so emphatically failed.

Not sure it's good for Super League. There seems little doubt that Super League cannot exist at its present level of expenditure. Reducing the division to 13 clubs by placing Bradford in the Championship may have been a start to reducing costs. This attempt to patch up the existing format only delays the absolutely necessary changes needed for Super League (or the new format elite division) to continue. The delay caused by this move could make it harder to implement the required changes.

Not sure its good for Rugby League as a whole. Highly visible problems in Super League will almost certainly have negative ramifications for the rest of the sport in the UK.

But, yes, good for Rovers in the short term.

good points

although sometimes we tend to look at the problems in our sport through the wrong end of a telescope a little. Every sport has its own issues to deal with, and in ots own way. Every sport, even ones with large incomes, support levels and media profile has problems with finance. Rugby League is no exception. The idea that the inception of SL was supposed to mean that Rugby League was supposed to inure the sport from such problems is ludicrous.

It's part of Rovers' current mission statement that the club is bidding to join Super League. It's part of a well structured plan. To be catapulted into SL before that plan was ready would have been ruinous for Rovers and bad for SL. We also have to remember that there are no guarantees, nor should there be-but the people running the sport have to be aware that we will not be ignored, and should Rovers be rejected there had better be a good reason for it.

I hope your right but this will be our best chance for sl and if we dont get it ther'd better be a damn good reason! It would be very disheartening for fans. Sl need to send out a message that clubs arent too big to drop e.g. Bulls and that cc clubs will get a fair crack of whip

it'll be a different place if they don't let us in Chris if we keep developing as a club, given how many sl clubs are going down the Gary!

It does make you wonder what a club has to do to be kicked out of SL. Think SL is too scared of a long legal battle to kick them out.

So much for the franchise system, completely discredited now, the concern is how CC clubs can gain promotion at the expense of a SL club. The RFL were lucky last time that Crusaders pulled out. The problem is that any SL club lawyer could challenge their club being relegated as the franchise system has clearly failed and the evidence provided by clubs about their financial position is unreliable.
