Some good news to report for once. Grand Final had the highest ever Super League TV audience and 43% higher than last year.

Also strong figures for the last 10 weeks of the season and for the Championship Grand Final.

Good news for the game ahead of a massive year with the TV deal renewal, and proof the new structure is better for TV. We won't get a Salford every year, but a different team in the Grand Final (particularly one from a big City) brings in the viewers it seems.

International weekend helps you'd feel and there was knacker all else on to watch.

I would love more championship to be shown on a weekly basis, some good games, York fev Leigh have had some belter this year.

An arrogant Wigan fan a few days before we stuffed them 18-4 at the JJB.

Very good news and excellent timing (with a TV deal to be sorted).
Adding a couple more sides to the comp and getting rid of the Loop fixtures would help with having to watch the "same old, same old".

With having a side in France place 1 in Canada, drives a bus through the "not enough players for a 14 side comp" argument as well.
It really is up to those who negotiate the contract to actually sell the sport and it's up to the rest of the clubs to fight back against the greed of the big four who would willingly play each other every week, pocket all of the Sky deal and "sod the rest".
