There are plenty of people who would like to see the cap raised but was Mr Noble saying that when at Bradford? I suspect not.In 2020, clubs will be allowed to spend £2.1m on player salaries, although there are certain incentive 'offsets' such as the marquee player rule.
"[Lifting the cap] would help for everybody's shopping lists," he said.
"It's not carefree abandoning of all the principles we've put in place in Super League, but if we're genuine in our aspirations to bring stars and have events, to make the game as vibrant as it was [when Super League started] in 1996 - or 1895 when northern union first broke away - then we are at the moment in the game where we need to make the pivotal decisions."
In any case while he won't get much argument about the need to raise the cap, most people involved in the game either running clubs or just us mere fans, realise there is no point raising the cap unless there is money available to pay the players.
Whether clubs could afford for it to be raised to attract players so the game became a bigger draw thus attracting more sponsors is debatable.
I think I am right in saying in RU the cap went up after they got a massive TV deal with BT Sport and the recent Sarries salary cap breach reminded me how much their cap is. £7m a season. So our sport needs to raise something like an extra £60m a season on top of the current TV money to match that.
