I was thinking to make Super League more competative why don't they have 16 teams with a two tier Super League

Teir 1

Saints
Wigan
Warrington
Leeds
Bradford
Huddersfeild
Catalan
Hull FC

Tier 2

London
Hull KR
Leigh / Halifax / Feverstone
Castleford
Wakefeild
London
Widnes
Salford

- Could be 28 games per season, or 21 games, then have promotion and relegation with the two Super Leagues
- More full time teams means GB have a bigger talent pool to choose from
- More competative matchs in tier one which would compete with the NRL
- Could expand it to 10 teams in each comp
- 21 game season would mean more time for internationals / battle of the roses
- Every bodies happy?

What does everyone think?

The RFL will never let London fall out of the top tier.....so put London and Hull KR in top tier and have Leigh Fax and Fev in SL2 with poss Sheff also.

Not everyone would be happy, especially 2 out of 3 between Fev, Fax & Leigh. How do you propose we choose who gets left out? Oh, I see that you made a mistake and put London in twice, or do you mean to include the Skolars? I prefer a structure where every club that is worthy gets included, otherwise the game could eventually die in that area. There MUST also be P&R between all divisions to give clubs something to aspire to, eg the Cumbrian clubs who are going through a lull at present, but are all capable of greater things.

No, but they'd have two teams in tier 2 to make up for it. :lol:

YES.
If we're in favour of P&R we're in favour, not just until our team's promoted. So they get relegated next season, so what? Eventually the gap in class between the leagues will close if P&R is reinstated. At the moment IMO it has become fairly monotonous in the Championship. Same old same old week in week out. Fev put 60 past Dews today. That's not RL it's a procession. Presumably Fev, Leigh, Fax, Sheffield and Batley will be in the mix at the end of the season. P&R adds spice. A team that's dominating its current division should be able to move up and challenge better teams. If they can't they drop down again and regroup.

A more-fair competition would be far better!

Are you in favour of two of the traditional clubs being relegated to C2 (or wahtever)?

The RFL don't have a clue and Lewis has gone to his eternal home - Wimbledon.

What a load of B***s

Good idea for me, 21 games probably the way forward as they keep saying SL teams play too much rugby now!
