The Rugby Football League has confirmed this year’s Championship Grand Final will be played at the home of the highest-ranked side.
Some clubs wanted to see the Championship’s showpiece event moved to a neutral venue, but the RFL has clarified that it will not be happening this year.
The governing body has notified clubs that it would be held at the home of the highest-place team playing in the final.
As things currently stand, Toronto would host the Grand Final at their Lamport Stadium home in Canada.
Brian McDermott’s Wolfpack sit top of the Championship table, 10 points above second-placed York after losing just one game thus far.
While the structure could change in 2020, the RFL has confirmed that the Championship Grand Final will definitely be held at the home of the highest-placed team this year.
