The 2018 Super 8s are the fourth season of the Rugby Football League domestic competition, in which the format of splitting teams after a certain number of games have been played.

The format is employed across all three divisions, and is used to decide championships, promotion and relegation.[1]

For the clubs in Super League XXIII the split comes after 23 games. The top eight clubs will then play each other once more, before the top four teams enter the playoffs for a place in the Super League Grand Final. In this group, points amassed during the regular season are carried forward to the Super 8 stage.

The four teams finishing bottom of the Super League after 23 rounds go into a group of eight teams, with the four teams who finished top of the Championship. Again, the teams play each other once more, with the top three finishers after this stage, plus the winner of the Million Pound Game, joining the top three teams in Super League XXIV, while the other four will play in the 2019 Championship. This group of eight is also known as The Qualifiers, and is the only Super 8 group in which points amassed during the regular season are not carried forward to the group stage.

The other eight teams in the Championship compete for the Championship Shield, with the top four going through to the Shield play-off semi-finals. The two teams finishing bottom of this group are relegated to League 1.
