Scandalous. All clubs should be entered, even if they can't fulfil their fixtures. was this decision made for mathematical reasons? after all, a 19 team first round, and 6 SL teams coming in at 3rd round, and a further 6 after that would stretch Professor Cox's mind, let alone a secretary at Red Hall.

Even Toulouse should be entered, if they can't make the game due to Brexit Covid / Flu restrictions, they can forfeit.

Aye, right.

Very sensible.

And had we gone with that wild format, you’d be moaning about how unprofessional and typical Rugby League it would be to do that.

Not invited or didn't enter ?

The RFL had 9 applicants from L1 to enter but only had 3 places so who knows how it was decided. Certainly Rochdale’s chairman was very vocal about his side being omitted at the time saying he had no idea how the 3 clubs had been selected.

No I wouldn't, Rugby League is an inclusive game, not filtering out the others.

Definitely, watch on iPlayer instead of normal bbc1 if you can. 

It isn't on BBC1 anyway, as far as I can tell.
