Shit Bradford Bulls have had a massive fall from grace, they were there or thereabouts a decade or so ago.
Sad to see Catalans at the bottom in danger of relegation but equally good to see Wolfpack pushing for promotion

And Toulouse

Is promotion/relegation just the one team or is it 2? You’d think there was a case for Toulouse to keep the French interest if Catalans go down.
It's more complicated. The bottom 4 in ESL and the top 4 in Championship play a mini league. At the end of this the top 3 go into ESL, teams 4 and 5 play off for the 4th and final spot in what has become known as the million pound game. You could therefore end up with the top 4 in the Championship staying exactly where they are.

Don't ask me about the league below this, I still don't understand it myself and my teams in it!

So in theory 4 teams have the potential to go up?

Yes. They won't though, ESL teams get the money and are full time, teams below this can't financially sustain s full time playing squad so are always going to struggle

Toulouse and Toronto are probably the ones with the resources to give it a go.

Tomkins to leave Wigan at the end of this season:


Not sure how the proposed move to Catalans will work if they get relegated, a distinct possibility seeing as they escaped by the skin of their teeth last season and are at the bottom end this time around

Toulouse is just up the road!

All ESL games, plus Toronto v Toulouse, are part of the two day 'magic weekend'. The venue for all these games as last year is Newcastle United's St James Park.
