Press conference happening today by a few of the champ/L1 reps. Should be interesting to hear what they have to say. I wonder if Chalmers will be there?


Its at Odsal so he will be there. I know it will ne easy to let rip with the arroagnce of the SL chairman, but i just hope he's calm and measured in his repsonse.

What a pipe-end....

I think it's time the CH/L1 chairmen took a another look and tried to come up with new ways to broadcast the game and run it. It would take years but if you have a league with

Bradford
York
Newcastle
Coventry
London B
London S
Toulouse
Toronto
West Wales (Yes I know.. but I am thinking in terms of ANYTHING could be possible)
North Wales
Hemel
Happyflaps
Swinton
Batley
Dewsbury
Doncaster
Sheffield
Widnes et all

You have a much wider scope to attract interest AND you can claim 'Big City RL' which super league can't anymore. Just Leeds in a pile of small towns and small cities.

Leave the SL mob laiking wi themselves as per...


Agree. I love the elite argument the SL clubs are spouting. There are only about 4/5 elite clubs (Leeds,Wigan,Saints and Hull/Warrington) the rest are no better than the lower keague clubs they're all belittling. They just so happen to be in SL at this moment in time. You could replace the rest with lower league clubs and they'd be no difference.

If the RFL had any balls instead of the absolute lemon we have running the sport now, i"d let the SL clubs go on their own. Invite Leeds to join the above comp. Any player that joins the rival SL can't participate in the CC or play for England. The players would be up in arms. The SKY contract is currently with the RFL not SL. The clubs are irrelevant. SKY don't give 2 stuffs about Kr/Wakey/Salford. If the best players are go to a halifax, Leigh, York,- thats the one SKY will pay for rights.

Sky won't pay to cover a match such as Hemel v North Wales in a local park. The situation rugby league finds itself is now precarious. I hate to use a cliche but these meetings look like turkeys and geese voting over which bird should be eaten over Christmas.

The RFL are to blame for this entire debacle. Internal arguments are pointless.

The way forward is simple. We need to get rid of the RFL hierarchy. Yes, we need a governing body, but not these clowns.

The Sky money is not sufficient.

Our sport needs a new backer.

I'll try and simplify my question then as my heads gone, will this vote tomorrow determine whether 2nd place in Champ 1 goes up automatically? Sorry for only appearing to care about Bradford but I'm confused now.

Like you I've no idea, but i would presume so as that was the one being pushed by the RFL along with SL. But i saw that as a way to buy votes. With the bitter war of words this week, it wouldn't surprise me if they kept the championship as 12 clubs and forced them to have loop fixtures as well.
