It was different when Richard Lewis was at the help.
Just for a short while, the sport appeared to be moving forwards.

Since he departed, we have looked only for quick fix after quick fix and right now Rimmer looks to be like a backward step from Mr Wood, which is quite an achievement.

I agree that in general I thought Richard Lewis was good but even then he didn’t manage to get licensing done properly.

Their league structure is massively advantageous toward a comp where multiple teams can be successful over a few years. No threat of relegations means that clubs can plan for next season and the season after without having to panic about this year and the clubs future. Then the bottom half of the table clubs get a helping hand by only having to play the top teams from last year once. This is a huge advantage and is often overlooked when we compare the 2 comps.


I never actually never knew this was a thing in the NRL. Certainly does give the bottom half teams a bigger chance of glory.

They don't have p&r though do they, a side can be bottom for a couple of seasons, and rebuild a side and be challenging for the title in the next 2-3 seasons, rather than the treat of relegation. The sides that perennially are in the lower reached in our league are always signings the dregs of the league, the better players still get attracted to the top teams. In Nrl they don't as everyside has a chance.


This is a problem I have mentioned before. Until we see the top players in SL willing to join the bottom clubs it's gonna be hard to change things.

Top players in the NRL will join lower end clubs if the money is right.

I know it's easy to say when you are already in SL, and my team aren't exactly a shining example, but Franchising is the only way to go for me.
It answers every problem except how to get the lower leagues an opportunity to grow.

That question is a money question. The promotion and relegation thing just isn't the way for a small sport like ours.
I'd make the lower league competition a good money winning target, so that it helps them build, but not just promote on the league table.

Totally agree, have decisions would have to be made, but for the good of the sport.
