promotion

23 posts in this topic

Oldham, Hunslet and York have to be the favoured teams to be contesting for the grand final places.

 

London, Gateshead (under coach Stanley Gene) will be looking for a strong season...Oxford, Gloucester and South Wales will be aiming for a play off position.

 

What happens this season we will have to play in another grand final to gain promotion.................(Not sure I can take another GF)

The advantage we have is that we know what the likes of London and oxford can do. There will be no underestimation of them. We have a team and coaching staff that have, in the main, been together a while. I think we're in a better position than last year and Tbh I would rather be where we are now than be in the relegation mire of the championship.

I agree, The Art of Hand and Foot. This season squad looks strong especially defensively, I think Hunslet Hawks are favourites tho.

 

The number don't add up!!!!!!!

 

One promoted out of Championship One and 5 relegated from the Championship, that leaves 13 teams in the two regional championship one leagues. The RFL must be submitting three new teams in 2015.

 

 SL 1 12 teams

 SL 2 12 teams

 

Championship (one) or whatever it will be rebranded as

 

Championship one North 8

Championship one South 5 plus Three new teams = 8

 

If I am right in thinking both regionally leagues will have  a play off system and the winners of both regional leagues play in the overall Grand Final, with the winner of the Championship one Grand Final gaining promotion into SL 2.

 

 

 

So simply SL1 and SL 2 divide into SL1, SL & SL 3 after so many rounds.

 

SL1 play for the championship

 

SL 2 play for promotion into SL 1

 

SL 3 play to allow relegation

 

Championship one North play off winners to G/F

 

Championship one South winners play off to G/F

 

Winners of GF enter SL 2 for the new season.

 

That is what I really love about the RFL, they keep things simple?

However if Coventry are admitted into the league into 2015 that would make championship one a 14 team competition, a total of 26 league game plus a play off system for promotion.

He will be in hot water with the RFL if he doesnt pull his finger out pronto...its becoming an embarrassment! (and I dont just mean the showers) the commentary team on Oldham community radio had me hooting with laughter with their "pithy" description of the Floodlights performance...or lack of it...

Reckon they'll go for soemthing like 20 games with 7 teams allocated each to north and south and then northern and southern teams play their region twice and the other region once with one club selected from the other region being played twice. Not heard the exact number of games confirmed but have heard they'll not have everyone play home and away to reduce travel.

 

It will be 2 promoted though

Not wanting to shoot down your hopes of promotion but would you get promoted with the ground as it is. I think the RFL would have a standard and you would not meet it.

. There's not a cat hell's chance, and crossing that road when we come to it isn't good enough, the situation needs addressing NOW.

I really hope that this is the season when Oldham get promotion. The team's good form for the majority of last season and the excellent crowds that this generated shows what huge potential this once-great club still has. Hopefully, promotion would force the owner's hand in terms of the stadium or make him more willing to listen to offers for his shares/development of a supporters trust. Get it right on the pitch and the rest will surely follow.

Gregory you are right in what you say logically if its right on the pitch the rest should follow but logic does not apply when CH is involved.

Oldham have no hope in hell of getting promoted. This once great rugby town has become a joke! I see more leeds shirts around now as people are travelling out of town to watch the superleague. No hope, no promotion and no hot running water.

Thanks for that insight into the sport in Oldham, what a positive person you are. Think you  will find the team on the pitch are capable of promotion without any doubt and play good rugby for such a young and loyal team, the amateur game is doing well, community clubs are springing up. Seems to me RL isnt doing so badly in Oldham after all ;) as for seeing Leeds shirts, you cant mock the afflicted so i will refrain from making any comment.:)

Definition of a Forum is

 

a meeting or medium where ideas and views on a particular issue can be exchanged.

 

 

The problem with this medium is that too many negative people are posting.

 

I believe if you pay your money you can have your say!

 

If you have not been for a few seasons come down watch the team and then have your say.

 

The current crop of players are committed, passionate and a pleasure to support.

 

Season 2014 is only 7 days away!!!!!!!!!!!!! :shout:  :tongue:  :tongue:
