Yes true, but they can vote all they like. If McManus dosnt think it will benefit Saints it will not happen.

At the end of the day, I just hope IMG make the decisions for the good of our game and not certain individual clubs, For too long, certain clubs have dictated policies, rules, etc, and brought the game to where we are now. Just about bankrupt. As I understand it, IMG have been given free rein to run the sport for the next 12 years, let’s hope they are big enough to do right by the game and not individual clubs.

Considering Ken Daveys massive conflict of interest we can safely say he also has a veto.

I really hope they go down expanding the top tier to 14 over the next season or two and disbanding the loop features.
Top six 2005 - Trinity.

Im not sure it's quite that cut and dried. However people need to realise that for all the hype IMG are glorified consultants and can't push through anything anymore than SKY could 25 years ago. All teams will vote based on self interest and always will.

I wonder what we’ll be talking about this time tomorrow, I hope we can all have a sensible debate, but more likely some will find fault with everything.
Below is a tweet from Mick Gledhill

It's remodelling/restructuring eve for the sport of
RugbyLeague because the governance and business model of the sport in England will be transformed forever by IMG tomorrow in Manchester. Very little has been given away but exciting and sweeping reform is expected.

the only thing that would turn me away from supporting any proposals would be further reducing the numbers in Super league... there are already too few teams at elite (relative for the UK) level.

any further reduction would be unpalatable (for me anyway)

Mick Gledhill is the least well informed pundit out there. Hence a load of cliches used to cover that.

I think we all learned our lesson when Glover held a meeting at the Cedar Court under the banner of the most important thing ever. Anyone remember what it was? :D

I have the belief that it will be a 14 team deal with a three year licence. The two promoted teams or Toulouse and the promoted team will receive reduced funding or none but may receive support by other means.

I've come to my conclusions based on the behaviour of two clubs, ourselves and Cas.

Cas know that they will never have WR sorted by 2026, not a chance. So the only way in for them after 3 years is to be a top 8 side for the next 3 years and use that as a bargaining tool. Hence the huge player spending in their part, I don't blame them.

Trinity will have a stadium fit for purpose by 2026. So we have the option of building a team. So year one sees Applegarth and his young team find their feet, anything but wooden spoon will do. Year two sees some more recognised players arriving and good youngsters getting longer deals partly to the savings made in 2023 and the ground producing more revenue improving. Year 3 sees the big push with maybe even a marquee signing. If we are top 8 in 2026 we are a walk in.

Our plan if I'm correct is IMHO better.

That’s pure speculation by the way I have absolutely no idea really.

I was genuinely excited when I attended that meeting.
The loud groans when it was announced as a flipping lottery not to mention eye rolling and a fair bit of swearing.
Never felt as deflated when we drove home.
