Well, if its restructuring, there are only really two choices: ten teams or fourteen teams.

Two leagues of ten isn't two super leagues but what we have now but smaller. The only way to avoid it would be to have more money for the lower league and a higher salary cap, so the team that comes up can do so competitively.

Fourteen teams means less money for everyone unless they make it UK-based only, so not sure how that will fly with those balancing the books.

I completed the IMG survey and one of the questions (or maybe more) was about the presence of French teams. The RFL may take the view that Catalans is an expensive luxury. Costs money to send teams over and costs thousands in ticket sales when they make the finals, as they don't bring many with them (understandably).

We all know it's going to be ten, it's being knocking around for so long. It's whether it includes french sides and how much for the lower leagues.

Interesting point.
If they decide to get rid of the French teams - in the fact that Toulouse have been relegated anyway and they still bring up Batley/Leigh that would make it at an 11 team comp....
So they'd have to get rid of a team - which should mean that Warrington get relegated....
Can't see that happening tbh.........

It will likely be for the year after next, so Leigh (we know it'll be Leigh) won't be affected. If they go for ten teams but keep the French teams, it's just shrinkage, but will mean more loop fixtures.

Personally, I'd like to see fourteen teams, but they should increase the overseas quota and consider raising the cap. There are plenty of good not-quite-NRL players who could shine over here. Remember, Nico Hynes couldn't get an NRL berth two years ago and now he's just won the Dally M Medal. Bevan French was playing in the Queensland Cup.

Our problem is depth of talent. Fourteen teams of good players would make for a good comp and just make it home and away,

Everyone RFL Sky etc are saying they want the game to be sustainable, yet sky sayings it great to fly to France for a game of RL. With energy being in crisis, it would seem the correct thing to let Catalans to play in their own French league

Doesn't tell you anything as far as I can see.

I assume P&R to SL is scrapped?

As you say, how many teams in SL, which is rather important. Not least because it affects funding via SKY monies.

Has to be more to it than this, otherwise it's just Framing the future regurgitated.

That’s it????

Seriously???

That’s it?!?


If that were done for a business I had responsibility for… at club or competition level… I’d be bouncing off the wall and bouncing the consultants out of town!!!

That’s seriously poor!!!

I think the point is that this is a summary and the detail will be released later.

I assume top 1 and 2 will be funded like Super League. They are making tier 1 a franchise system and tier 2/3 a P&R system.

I see it as a load of rubbish and there just looking after the big clubs again.that said if we could get a little bit of investment maybe just maybe we may be ok with the ground getting face lift and a great youth system and community team
