No “binding decisions” have been made to competition structure for next season, the Rugby Football League has said, in light of comments by new Super League chief executive Robert Elstone.

Elstone said a new ‘one-up, one-down’ promotion and relegation system was to be introduced between Super League and Championship for 2019 and beyond.

However, the governing body says no such decisions have been finalised.

“These discussions are still ongoing,” the RFL statement read.
