Good news-as long as the successor is anti-franchise.

This is a great opportunity for the sport and the appointment of the right replacement is vital to the games future. Lets hope they dont appoint the wrong person although nothing would surprise me.

How much of a golden handshake will he take, not that he should need the money, make a grand gesture Mr. Wood and give it to developing the game at grass roots.
On the other side is he getting ready to move into the position being vacated later the year to cause mayhem and unrest at international level ?
My Humble Opinion Only - let the knockers begin.

Bearing in mind that the blokes making the appointment will be $uperleague dominated, why would this be good for Championship clubs ?

As I say, its a great opportunity. Whether it is taken however, we will have to see.

Scrap forced expansion, scrap franchising, scrap no P&R, tidy up certain aspects of the game (scrums for example, which are a farce), give supporters a greater say in how the game is run, scrap the gimmicks (magic weekend), increase the importance of the Challenge Cup...

Scrap forced expansion - it's like we're back in the 19th century - "chuck South Shields out, it's too far".

Scrap franchising - thought we'd done that (for the moment), we replaced it with a crazy 12s and 8s system with games at the climax of the season that are poorly attended because no-one knows they're on till about 10 minutes before kick-off.

Scrap no P&R - just remind me about Leigh and Hull KR......... Still we can always whinge about players losing their jobs and not having stability in employment which is a problem entirely caused by P+R.

Tidy up certain aspects of the game (scrums for example, which are a farce) - nothing wrong with scrums. I don't want all restarts to be the same like American football.

Give supporters a greater say in how the game is run - seriously, what experience do they have in running clubs or the game as a whole ?

Scrap the gimmicks (magic weekend) - I'd go with that - but do they make money ? We don't have enough information.

Increase the importance of the Challenge Cup - supporters decide that - with their feet.

And how are you going to get the $uper£eague turkeys to vote for Christmas ?



It's not as easy as it looks .....

Well history proves that forced expansion has failed with the farce over where Toronto are playing their games the latest shambles.

Franchising, or at least scrapping P&R, is apparently coming back. P&R works fine in football and in RU but the instability in employment in RL is a problem? Oh diddums. If it improves the spectacle for the supporters then I am all for it.

Nothing wrong with scrums??? Ha, OK then.

"Give supporters a greater say in how the game is run - seriously, what experience do they have in running clubs or the game as a whole ?"

That is just typically ignorant of you. First of all, I said give them a say, not give them full control. But there is a huge range of skills and experiences among the supporters on the terraces. In fact, isnt the current HRLFC board made up of people who were supporters prior to joining the board? As was Steele, Pearson, Riley, etc.

Anyway, I said its an opportunity for a change in direction rather than continue as the sport was under Wood. Never said it would be easy.
