In British rugby league system, the qualifiers was a competition that was played at the end of the regular rugby league season in the Middle 8 of the Super 8s.
The British rugby league system is based on a five-tier structure administered by the Rugby Football League.
The Rugby League Super 8s were a feature of the British rugby league system, between 2015 and 2018, and were played in the top three professional divisions. Following the completion of the regular season home-and-away fixtures in the Super League, the Championship and League 1, teams split into smaller divisions of 8 based on their finishing positions on the league table; the teams then played an additional fixture against each of the seven other teams in their division to determine the final standings.
At the end of 23 rounds of the regular season, the bottom 4 teams in the Super League and top 4 teams in the Championship play each other home or away in a league of 8. The top three teams automatically earn a place in the Super League. The 4th and 5th placed teams play in the Million Pound Game for the final Super League place.
