Super League: Clubs vote to scrap Super 8s in favour of ‘one up, one down’ system


St Helens and Wigan Warriors were two of the leading Super League clubs in support of reverting to a “one up, one down” system

Rugby league clubs have voted by a clear majority to scrap the Super 8s and return to a conventional promotion and relegation system from 2019.

The decision was reached at a Rugby Football League (RFL) extraordinary general meeting in Manchester.

The Super 8s were introduced in 2015 and saw the top two tiers split into three groups at the end of each season to decide promotion and relegation.

However, a “one up, one down” system will be back in place from next season.
