The 1895 Cup Can't Post or Reply Privately

This is a new competition for Rugby League teams that play in the Championship and League One. With the Challenge Cup being moved to July from 2020, there will now be a finals days wihich will be the Challenge Cup final, The 1895 Cup final and the RFL Champion Schools final. A quote, probably from the RFL regarding the 1895 Cup "For a good number of the Championship and League One clubs who have won the Challenge Cup in the past, reaching Wembley currently seems a distant dream."

Getting like football, where it's become unusual for a club NOT to have played at Wembley.

The idea seems to be that the RFL wants every club to have the opportunity to play at Wembley in a cup final and the RFL do mention the Football League Trophy (call it what you will) to be the example for this new competition.Clubs in the Championship and League One have backed it's introduction.

Entering all Super League clubs at an earlier stage of the Challenge Cup might make give more of a chance, with a lucky draw, for teams outside the SL to reach Wembley,
