Decision day is 14th September - 55 votes to be cast, SL clubs each have 2 votes, so a minority of 24 in total.

Is this for 12 clubs, play each other 2.5 times, one up one down, 5 team play off?

I believe so, all I can find on the official RFL site is..

A Rugby Football League Council Meeting will be held on Friday 14th September. The purpose of the meeting is to update all Members on discussions between the RFL and Super League (Europe) Limited and to seek the Members support for a suite of measures relating to the Game.

Well, they can’t be accused of a lack clarity!

Sounds like it’ll be an interesting meeting.

Wonder how long it will be until we’re having the same discussions?
You can change the structure however many times you want, but it’s not a miracle cure for an ailing game.

Lack of quality player pool, our salary being dwarfed by union and the NRL, poor quality games, diminishing sponsorship and attendances. All to remedied in yet another change of structure decided upon by self serving owners.

We can’t even negotiate a half decent tv deal, so I won’t hold my breath on them making a success of yet another restructure.

There's a lot of simple things that could be a lot better.

Just one example, I'd ban games from taking place at the same time as SKY fixtures. Meaning more RL fans at home watching SKY and therefore making the rights more attractive. At the moment we have a crazy situation where say Saints will be on TV while Leeds, Hull and Wigan are all at home instantly reducing the potential viewership by 30-40k then we wonder why SKY wont pay much.

Sounds like a Unilateral Declaration of Indipendence if the vote doesn’t go Super League’s way. Gary Hetherington will be on the phone for the next 36 hours trying to get the lower divisions to kybosh it. Wonder what Super League will do without Leeds.

It’s always amazed me that there can be a full round of fixtures on the same night as a Sky game - viewing figures and attendances are bound to be affected
