BBC Sport - Super League Show: What can we expect from the Super 8s?
What can we expect from the Super 8s?
- From the section Rugby League
As the Super League and Championship regular seasons edge toward a dramatic finale, teams are already beginning to focus their energies on the three-way split between the 12-team top two divisions.
While the top eight in Super League do battle for a top-four play-off spot and the big prize, the remaining top-flight clubs form a middle tier with the top four from the Championship.
It is this division which is potentially the most explosive, with the gateway to the top tier again open for the top-three finishers and the winners of the fourth v fifth 'Million Pound Game'.
Super League Show pundits Luke Robinson - the Huddersfield hooker - and Wales and Batley coach John Kear discuss the possibilities and the prospects for the clubs expected to form the eight-strong pool.
