What will happen come franchise time?

how many teams will it be, 12, 14, 16?

heres who I reckon will be in

1 St Helens
2 Leeds
3 Bradford
4 Wigan
5 Warrington
6 Hull
7 Huddersfield
8 Harlequins
9 Catalans
10 Hull KR or Salford
11 Castleford or Salford
12 Wakefield or Widnes
13 Celtic
14 French team 2

would not be surprised at all if Wakefield and Hull KR get shat on and they accept widnes in

at the end of the day SL and SKY want 12-14 nice looking grounds, <which could work against bradford and leeds because they both play in dumps!>

thats how i think it might pan out!

It'll be the current 12 plus Salford plus one other, I guarantee it.

The current 12 will get one as will Celtic, for certain. As to who gets the other one is up for debate, but I would have to put Salford in pole position at the moment.

yes it is a dump but i wouldnt mind saying they will get a franchise anyway, i cannot see the RFL dropping the most successful club of the super league era from the top league

yes but in 2 years time they will be moving into an 18,000 all seater stadium

why 18,000 i dont know when they struggle to get 8,500 unless wiggin or leeds are there, and if its an NL team in the cup they dont even manage 4,000!!!
