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.


Indeed.

Apparently IMG are only sharing their suggestions with clubs today.
The vote isn't until much later in the year.

Do you know if we will get to see their suggestions? Surely they must decided before everyone can plan for next season

Remember it well, so many fans turned up it required 2 sittings, one lot waiting outside the meeting room, while the first sitting had to listen to lottery sales talk, those poor Trinity players coming round the tables trying to sign people to the lottery looked really embarrassed. As people left the first meeting and telling those waiting to go in what happened, most of the second sitting just left, as you say, a very disappointing night.

I think I read yesterday they were showing the clubs their proposals before going public with them

I missed the first sitting by getting a beer in.
It certainly was a long night. Mind you, the 1873 lottery is still going !

As for IMG, I read somewhere that their final suggestions will be implemented and not open to a vote ?
It will be interesting to see what they finally come up with.

You could be right, my understanding is, all clubs received the IMG proposal last Wednesday and today was to be the announcement to the public. Sadly as ever, the biggest shake up to our sport since the introduction of full time Super League, and our RFL/SL administrators keeping the fans, sponsors, players etc in the dark. No information from them regarding the release of information as to when the news is released.

Just seen this tweet from Mick Gledhill, I’ve no reason to doubt him on this

For those asking, here is how the IMG/RFL announcement will unfold today:

The clubs and community members are meeting with IMG/RFL to see the restructuring presentation at 10:30 am.

Members of the media like myself are being shown the same IMG/RFL presentation at 2:00 pm.
