Got something to discuss about RL in general? Then this is the place to post it.

I agree with you pieman that we need to increase the number of teams in the league - 14 to 16 teams gives it more credibility or substance so to speak.

But what about the availability of playing talent, and would the comp be watered down as a result ?

Unless we get the NRL's investment deal with their playing pool made available to Super League clubs.

The fact we play some teams 3 times and other teams 2 times in the league is bizzare. Does it happen in any other sport ?

Either franchise the league to allow promoted sides the chance to settle and build or just play each team twice.

I’ve always said that the 3 year, at least, franchise system was the best way to go to stop the yo yoing up & down of the promoted clubs.
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.

have asked again but not hearing anything back, I've not got an awful feeling it was Mulhern... although the last I heard was said prop was signing his contract.... I honestly don't know. but where I get my information from is 100% legit. cant get any higher up within the club really. hence how I got pictures of the blue kit and mentioned Hastings announcement about 2 hours before it was announced. & Bateman... I'm not naming names but you all know who the top dogs at the club are....

Nice thinking from those in charge of the game yet again showing why this game will never move forward
