Championship 2020

Recommended Posts

Looking like the Championship 2020 season could be the best with either Oldham or Newcastle joining the party.Roll on next season and another ST in the bag.

Toulouse, Leigh and Featherstone will be the favourites for promotion. Widnes, Bradford, Sheffield, London and Halifax in the pack behind... should be a great competition.

Be interesting how they go in season 2 as they'll be no longer under the radar. Batley had a great season (and an almost identical knack of winning the close games) a few years ago but didn't kick on from there.

I would say London have certainly as good a chance as Leigh and Fev. They've lost some players but have recruited some good ones and have a great coach

Hopefully it’s Newcastle. That ground Oldham are playing at looks worse than most NCL grounds

Bit harsh lad.

Better to be playing in a ###### ground than having no club.

There but for the grace of God...

As has been pointed out in other threads ... Oldham will not be playing at that ground when in the Championship. It will probably be back at Bower Fold (Stalybrdige Celtic FC) as they did when last in the Championship or it could even be at Boundary Park.

With Toronto coming up, the Championship may improve next year. The side who have gone down have lost a few players, so there are a number of promotion candidates.

It's a huge opportunity for Toulouse, the biggest chance they have had to get to Super League. London, York, Leigh and Fev would all back themselves and cannot be ruled out.

In addition to the battle at the top, it should be fiercely competitive at the other end too. 

Not that it is fun to talk about relegation this far out, but, if Swinton can sort out their off field issues, there doesn't look an obvious team out of their depth right now...

I can’t believe it’s actually called a stadium

A stadium (plural stadiums or stadia)[1] is a place or venue for (mostly) outdoor sports, concerts, or other events and consists of a field or stage either partly or completely surrounded by a tiered structure designed to allow spectators to stand or sit and view the event.

I’ve never really understood this ‘under the radar’ thing.

It’s not like York are some secret unknown club playing their games behind closed doors. Opposition coaches (if their team didn’t have a game) were often seen at Bootham Crescent checking out how we played in the weeks before their game with York.

Mentally maybe certain players from other clubs thought little old York would roll over and so didn’t prepare as intensely as they would when playing the likes of Fev, Leigh, Widnes etc.

But anyway yes it should be a great season, will be nice to have another trip down to London and for what it’s worth if someone offered 5th position I’d take that now. It looks an incredibly competitive league and with the new stadium move coming up I know sometimes clubs can take a while to adjust to the new surroundings, plus I have a feeling the player turnover at York will be higher than previous years, which again takes time to gel.

It could easily be Bradford if they actually make it to the start of the season and are allowed to continue in this league. Other than that I think the 2 heavy wollen teams will be in the mix for the drop come the end of the season.

Bower Fold isn’t exactly a quality ground suitable for championship rugby league, plus isn’t it a fair way from Oldham (in Greater Manchester terms?). It would be great to see you at Boundary Park.
