Super League clubs have voted overwhelmingly to retain the controversial Clubcall system for next season, the Rugby Football League have announced.

For the past two years, the highest-placed side reaching the last four of the play-offs has been able to choose their opponents in the semi-finals.

This year Warrington head coach Tony Smith refused to participate in the system, which some have labelled a gimmick, but 12 of the clubs' 14 chief executives voted to retain it, the RFL confirmed.

It is thought St Helens were the only club to vote against, with Warrington abstaining.

Last season the Wolves selected to host Leeds in their semi-final and were beaten by the Rhinos, who went on to win the Grand Final.

The clubs have also voted to stick with an eight-team play-off system.
