How every Championship squad is shaping up for the 2022 season

The squads are just about complete for every Championship team ahead of the start of the new season at the end of January.

Leigh Centurions will be looking to earn a quick return to Super League following relegation but are expected to face stiff opposition from Featherstone Rovers, who have been beaten in the Million Pound Game in each of the last two completed seasons.

There are a host of other ambitious clubs who will aim to make their bid for promotion as well, while at the other end of the table Cumbrian newcomers Barrow Raiders and Workington Town will want to avoid the relegation scrap.
