Good. Personally would've gone for an inclusive version of licensing but given the whinging that would never have been agreed.

I really liked the Super 8s concept but I get the uncertainty thing. It can't work for clubs. So this is probably the best we can do.

Whilst appreciating the finances do not permit an increase to 14 teams at this stage and the need for loop fixtures to create 2 further home fixtures, presumably the 5th loop fixture will be the Magic Weekend. For the first time ever, Magic will have a valid place in the league structure even if the "loop" concept is in itself a destabilising influence. The only pure league format is to play everyone else home and away once. Anything else is detrimental to the integrity of a genuine league so one of Superleague's top priorities must be to expand to 14 clubs with 13 home and away fixtures - PERIOD.

This just isn't progress.
It's good that we've finally given up on the every minute matters nonsense, which always was seriously flawed. BUT, there was a golden opportunity to increase SL to 14 clubs and have a balanced fixture program, plus including Toronto and Toulouse and they've bottled it.
Once again our sport shows just how mickey poor it really is.

I've seen a few things from Twitter and Facebook with regards to the 6 'loop games'. Does anyone actually know where/how these games are decided?
