Twelve teams, six games and one weekend later, every Championship team has had their opportunity to showcase their talents on the national stage.
Following a number of captivating contests, the inevitable question has been asked – can 2016 be the year a club from the Championship earns promotion?
Four of the clubs will get their chance to mix it with the big boys in September, with at least one of those clubs almost certainly set to play in the Million Pound Game.
After a pulsating game on Saturday, Leigh and Bradford reinforced their promotion credentials, while London also impressed in victory over Sheffield.
On Sunday, Halifax put on their best display of the season as they pulverised Featherstone in what was arguably the most complete performance of the weekend.
Despite all of that, there are still those who question the likelihood of promotion under the current Super 8s system. Although the Championship now has more full-time teams, there is still a perceived difference in class between the second-tier and Super League, with many citing the pace of the games as a key difference. Another point often made is that the intensity of games in the Championship isn’t as high, which doesn’t help the Championship clubs ahead of the Middle 8s.
So what do you think – can a Championship team earn promotion this year? Cast your vote below.
