Div 1 relegation scrapped ?

Any truth in the rumour I heard that Div 1 relegation will be scrapped this
year to allow expansion next season ?  As a Leigh fan I certainly hope so !!
But then where does that leave the deadwood in Division 2- some form of
amateur/pro mix involving the likes of Woolston, Saddleworth, Leigh Miners ?

I remember one at least one occasion where the crowd at Miners exceeded the
one at Paris last season (1300) so perhaps its worth a shot ?

I hope it is scrapped.  But on the other hand we could end up with one of the
biggest local derbies in rugby league.

I wouldn't be surprised.  After all we have kept more or less the same
format for two seasons running so it's about time for a change!

Seriously, such a move would IMHO would be detrimental to the First
Division in that it would remove much of the interest later in the season.

Lets hope relegation is introduced for
the sake of the Cougars

And miss the opportunity to see Dewsbury put 50 past them in one match
again next season? :-))
