Throwback Thursday: What Super League should look like

Post by josie andrews » Thu Jan 10, 2019 12:25 pm

It’s nearly 24 years since British rugby league took a £75m deal from Sky’s Rupert Murdoch to launch a summer European Super League.

The idea was for Super League to consist of a number of merged clubs, stand alone clubs and then new clubs in Paris and Toulouse, with a Cardiff side playing in the First Division.

The top four Super League clubs would then play-off against their Australian counterparts, though of course the Super League war in Australia soon put paid to that idea.

In what may sound like a familiar tale, Leeds were initially opposed to the summer switch but eventually agreed at a vote of club chairmen. ... look-like/
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.
