The 8 we finish in

34 posts in this topic

Since the early days of SL and Workington and Oldham going pear shaped after being relegated and left with players on big contracts I'm pretty sure that all contracts now have a cancellation clause should the club be relegated.

But for the last how many years, club could not be relegated. Therefore I think it is highly likely that this issue has not been considered as it could not arise.

Fred - I think you're flogging a dead horse here.  Prior to the current debate and restructure, everybody thought that there was at least some jeopardy of relegation at the end of the 2014 season through licensing, so what you say is not true.  Also, the RFL has a standard player's contract.  If clubs have chosen to strike out the changing divisions clause, more fool them.

Fair enough. I wasn't aware that there was a standard RFL contract, which if you say is correct then that should alleviate that potential problem.  I just don't think that the SL clubs are going to roll over and have their tummies tickled and everything in relation to the Championship clubs will come through like manna from heaven.

Well, that's a different issue and I wouldn't disagree with you on that.

It would be disapointing to miss out on a middle 8 of say:

 

Bradford, Widnes, Cas, Salford, Wakey, London and 2 from Fev/Fax/Sheffield/Leigh

 

Would be some great games to miss out on in 2015.

 Great as you say but first we have to get into the top four of our championship with two relegated SL to contend with .

One of the biggest problems according to RL Express is which TV company will show what?If Sky Sports cover the second eight in 2015? who will cover the Championship? Lets hope theyt sort it out. Premier Sports contract finishes at the end of 2014 so will that continue. What will the financal basis of it all be. Also with relegation and SL clubs bottom four competeing in the same set up as Championship clubs the end of dual registration seems to be a thing of the past. Tthe other big danmger mooted is clubs overspending on players to maintain their position. Lots to mull over before the campaign starts. Lets hope they sort it.

So now we hear that a new contract has been signed with Sky Sports and a bigger distrbution will be made to Championship clubs. No figures yet. After due consideration I reckon that the relegated clubs will be London and Wakefield. The bottom four: Cas, Salford, Widnes and Bradford. So the second group of eight in 2015 from: , Cas, Salford, Widnes, Bradford. Who if they finish in the bottom four will join our eight,which will include four from I reckon Fev, Sheffield, Halifax,Leigh, London and Wakefield.. Lets hope we finish in the top four the first 20 odd games before the split. Then in the top four of the eight to go up to SL. Be interesting to see the new distribution figures.
