Clubs submit final applications for Championship spot

Newcastle, Rochdale and Barrow have applied to join the Championship in 2021.

Super League are seeking their 12th team for 2021 following Toronto Wolfpack’s failed bid to be re-admitted in to the top flight.

Championship clubs Leigh, London, Toulouse, York, Featherstone and Bradford have all applied to take Super League’s 12th spot.

As a result of this, the Championship will be left with 13 teams so one team from League 1 has the chance to move into the second tier.

League 1 hopefuls had until December 2 to submit their application to be considered a place in the Championship – and Newcastle, Rochdale and Barrow have confirmed their bids.
