The marquee system is rubbish if all we can do to attract a Ben Barba player is to wait for one to be banned - so for me the issue is to raise the salary cap & create a better quality product to attract viewers and advertisers.

We need to attract big backers to the sport but look at how people ridicule a backer who tried in a difficult area i.e. " the good doctor".

You make very valid points, however that has bugger all to do with the salary cap, and more to do with the imbeciles we have in charge of the sport!

Its a tough choice and what you have written in this thread is very true...everyone wants the top quality, to see the best players and the NRL has a much higher cap...if you want the best you have to pay....you get what you pay for.
But some people also don't want the salary cap at the same time since,lets just face it,their clubs and attendances just don't have the depth to support it....so they whine and complain (Leigh would be a good example).
The simple truth is we need to increase the salary cap to be near or at NRL levels...people can't have their cake and eat it too....spoiled brats just having a tantrum really.

I'm reminded of the widnes player applauding James Child's decision making here.
"The problem when you play Leeds is that they are a huge 'confidence' side. If you get on top of them, they will cower and go away, but when they get in front their chests puff out and they start whooping as they make tackles. " (Jon Wilkin)

Yes, I also heard that the quality of food at Leigh was very low. very poor fare indeed...Thank you for confirming that....poor Leigh.

It appears that it is time to put lowly Leigh out of their misery.... If Toulouse don't do it this weekend, Toronto will have to sink to their level and do everyone a favour by finishing them at Lamport....

You are welcome everyone.

And you’re not Jean?.. Pathetic

The myth that higher salary cap will bring in NRL stars needs to stop

This is absolutely correct. The gap between the NRL and Super League is only going to get bigger financially.

There is no way Super League will ever be able to attract the world’s best players from the NRL again.

Even with a $9.1 million (£5.1 million) salary cap, the NRL is set to run with $45 million surplus this year.
