RFL reaches decision on venue for Championship Final

The RFL has reached a decision on the venue for this year’s Championship play-off final.

Debate on the issue has swept the sport, following questions raised by club chairmen regarding a potential return trip to Toronto during a short time period.

It is understood that representatives of Championship clubs met today to discuss the topic, and that the possibility of moving the game to a neutral venue was under consideration.

However, TotalRL.com’s Matt Shaw reports that the game will instead be played at the home of the highest-ranked club.

Shaw writes: “It was confirmed that there would be no change to the current operational rules, which state the game will give home advantage to the side that finished the regular season highest in the table.

“It means clubs face the prospect of heading to Toronto for the Grand Final, with the Wolfpack the runaway leaders of the Championship and strong favourites for promotion.”
