Championship[edit]

The league was won by Dewsbury Rams. Dewsbury also reached the Grand Final and defeated Leigh Centurions, with Leigh's Mick Higham winning the Tom Bergin Trophy. Dewsbury were not promoted to the Super League however, as their stadium did not meet the minimum requirements to be accepted into the league.
