So there is a question in this regarding French rugby league and should they be in Super League and before tonight’s match between Toulouse and Catalan there was a Twitter poll and 77% said yes they should be in.

Well allegedly some one from Huddersfield says the French should not be in the comp, well my point is who ever said that needs to take a look at the size of the crowd at the game tonight for their derby game.

My understanding is the the results show the majority have a beef with loop fixtures/Magic Weekend. The 14 team league is fast approaching, Toulouse to stay up and two teams promoted for 2023.

Thar would certainly take the pressure off Wire for next season.

I'm absolutely for France having a place in SL and even expanding the number of clubs in the SL / Champ pyramid, however at some point hey do need to start contributing to the pot, the size of that crowd puts nothing in to the 'British' game financially, other than some additional exposure for sponsors in to a non M62 market. A French TV deal is an absolute must, then that along with the UK TV deal should be distributed amongst all SL teams.

I think 2x tens is also on the table, both have their positives & negatives.

1x14 means the end to loop fixtures, however it makes promotion and relegation difficult as the strength of the Championship is weakened by losing its best 2 clubs - probably Leigh & Featherstone. You would probably have a 1 league franchise comp, with growth outside that, London / Newcastle / Sheffield / York etc difficult. Plus how do you increase the strength of RL in France (Critical I'd say for international game growth & development). Would also need some additional TV money to fund it.

2x10's gives potentially another competition to sell a tv package for maybe package 1 having 2x SL1 games and package 2 having 1x SL1 and 1x SL2 - needs someone willing to buy package 2 though and would need significantly more TV investment than a 14 team comp. Promotion & Relegation is also easier in a 2x10 comp, the big caveat is you'd need a big increase in TV money, so no Package 2 offering meaningful investment, it falls on its backside. Gives the benefit of adding expansion clubs to SL2 when suitable, additional French teams if a French TV deal turns up.

A 14 team league is probably most likely, I'm just not sure what message this sends to the likes of London and York & Newcastle especially who have grown nicely over the past few years and have ambitions of SL.

They build so strong a case that expansion to 16 or 18 is inevitable. Look at the NRL for the way to do it.

In the 1994/95 season there were 16 teams and 30 games.
+ Regal Trophy
+ Challenge Cup

What was wrong with that?

The current Super League teams don`t want to dilute their share of the Sky money, by sharing it with the new teams being introduced to the league.

Yeah they probably want it reduced to 8 teams watched by nobody.

For me, as a dinosaur, I'd like to see

- A format where we play a team home and away in the league.
- The reduction of the number of interchanges both in personnel and frequency and transition the game from a robotic cardiovascular attritional exercise back into a skillfull contact sport. This would have the benefit of reducing squad size.
- Encourage the physical gladiatorial contest in the pack. Crowds like biff and aggression.
- Zero tolerance of feigning injury (cannot believe this is in our game)
- Zero tolerance on artificially slowing the play the ball. It's stifling attacks and making the spectacle boring.
- Strict adherence of 10m on side rule.
- Corner flag as 'in touch' to force more creative play.
- 1 marker defender
- Contested scrums
Next
