Sky have held the rights to broadcast Championship rugby league for some time but have chosen not to show any of the fantastic quality the league has to offer. The only opportunity fans of the Championship get to watch their team on TV through the season is at the Summer Bash, Challenge Cup and of course the soon to be extinct Super 8s Qualifiers. The top flight competition for most of has seen many lacklustre games, whereas the Championship has been very competitive. There was a clear winner in Toronto Wolfpack but from second to sixth there was only a single point separating them prior to the end-of-season play-off split.
