Brian Carney was saying last night that SL might finish a week early, cancelling the last round of matches, and instead have 6 teams in the play offs. Is this to give Catalan a chance of making the playoffs?
Seems very late to change the rules, but we are talking about the Rugby League!
They we’re saying on Radio Merseyside last night, that the clubs are meeting on Monday and will probably vote for the season to finish early after tonight’s matches, and increase the playoffs to 6 teams instead of 4.
They are also likely to scrap the rule saying you have to play at least 15 games to qualify for the playoffs, then Catalan, who have only played 12 games, can play in them.
Super league is going to end early with 2 matches on Friday, then a top 6 play off, with the club finishing 7th on standby. They’ve got rid of the rule saying you have to play 15 matches, so Catalan will qualify.
