  2. The preliminary stages of the Autumn Cup saw teams drawn into groups with the winners and runners-up in each advancing to quarter finals. The quarter finals and semi finals were played over two legs with the final being a one off game at a pre determined venue.
  3. Deducted five points for breaking wage cap regulations
  4. Between 1984 and 2006, the teams qualifying for the play offs played a preliminary round robin group stage. Teams were divided in to two groups with the top two in each advancing to the semi finals (in 2002 and 2003 a single qualifying group was used with the top four advancing to the semi finals). The semi finals and final were one off games played at a predetermined venue, the exception being in 1998 when the semi finals were played as a best-of-three series. Between 1984 and 1990 and again in 2004 and 2005, the top six teams qualified for the play offs. Between 1991 and 2001 and again in 2006, the top eight teams qualified. In 2002 and 2003 when the membership of the league was 7 and 5 respectively, all teams qualified for the play offs.
  5. The 1998 playoff semi finals were played as a best of three series.
  6. In 1998–99 and 1999–00, teams from the Super League were divided in to two groups of eight. Their final placing within the group determined their second round opponent from the British National League (who had their own group stage).
  7. Between 1998–99 and 2000–01 and again in 2003–04, certain designated league fixtures doubled up as Challenge Cup qualifiers. Results counted towards a team's league standing and their standing within a separate Challenge Cup table. The top four teams moved into a two-legged semi final, with the winners facing each other in a one-off final.
  8. During the 2000–01, 3 points were awarded for a regulation time win, of which the Steelers had 30.
  9. In 2006–07, the top eight teams qualified for the play offs which were played on a knockout basis. The quarter finals were played over two legs with a team's quarter final opponent determined on their league standing (1st vs 8th, 2nd vs 7th, 3rd vs 6th and 4th vs 5th). The semi final and final remained as one off games played over a single weekend.
