    Will the challenge cup still be played for this season?

    I can't see them getting that in too in the time we have left, plus I don't think we have the same financial commitments for this as we do with Sky. Could be wrong though!

    On a side note, it would have been the final on 18th July!

    No mention of it on the press release but Dave Woods of the BBC thinks it's still on, I can't see why not, it's only a couple more games these days to get to the semis and final with Supleague joining at a later stage, and it's unfinished business for us after last year, and a higher profile on the BBC, there should be room to fit it especially with a shorter play off series for the Grand Final. It will also possibly keep interest going for some clubs who miss out on the top four, not being pessimistic but that might include us!

    Guess they'll need to sort out what's happening with the Championship and L1 first as there are still a few of those teams in the Cup. If they're not starting up again this season then I guess they'd either have to give their SL opponents byes or start it again as a mini SL-only knock-out comp. With the RFL already losing the Ashes series, losing the Cup altogether would leave them in a pretty sticky position financially (more so than they are in a good year anyway).

    When the 3 restart options were published at the end of May they all had the Cup being played. Option 1, which is the one they are now going with, had the final on the weekend of October 25th.
