1.14 team superleague . Each team plays each other home and away
2. All games to kick off at 3pm on Sunday unless selected for TV
3.Scrap magic weekend then there is room for a meaningful mid season international which could be at Newcastle.
4. All teams to have an academy.
5. Salary cap strictly enforced no exceptions
6. Limit overseas players to 4 per team
7. Two up and two down at end of season
8. Top 8 play off as per NRL
If I was short sighted I could become a referee!

I’d love to see a 14 even a 16 team league but that’ll never happen due to money.

Willy, there really isn't enough quality players for a 14, 16 League.

It won’t happen because there aren’t enough pro standard players in the game over here.

We have enough for 7 or 8 teams tops

are you bankrolling this?
maybe play some games in toronto?
Is perez involved?

The Game hasn't enough money or players for a 10 team league....."leveling" the playing field like this will simply drag the standard down. Magic pays a lot of wages at the RFL.....so are you recommending a raft of redundancies? Sunday 3pm? Fine if you're hopping on a bus to the away game in the next borough, but a b'stard if you're away in France........4 overseas players per team......yeah, because we're brimming with talent......and no matter the play off format, Saints v Wigan/Leeds/Wire....and maybe now Catalan.....other need not apply

Revive Game ? Its been on life support for years.

No Vision, Greed and stupid rules resulting in teams getting stronger and others getting weaker. Its all been a scandal and conspiracy with some of these Jokers in charge !

Things will never improve until we start from the bottom at grass roots. Even without Covid, most genuine fans are at their wits end.

Lets expand more, with more loops fixtures, give teams 24-0 wins, No academies. No, lets not.

Just merge to 1 governing body, bin the Ego's and do what is good for the game. Stop devaluing it by overvaluing it. It isn't soccer and never will be. Whether people like to hear it or not, they need a new pencil, a new book, and start again !

1. Increases dead wood
5. TBF I like an even salary cap in principle but with 14 teams it will be evening down
6. Reduces the talent pool for your 14 clubs to put teams together
7. Doubles the problem of clubs having to switch between full and part time ........

Pointless as SKY won't want to be showing games between dead wood SL clubs, or blow out scores which your plan would create more of.

Your plan will set us back decades then kill us at the end of the 2023 season......But nice try...

1. I'd prefer more teams, I'd actually like 15/16 with no playoffs.
2. RL needs to be more flexible than that
3. Magic Weekend, when done right, is brilliant.
4. Not all teams could afford it.
5. I'd rather just remove the cap. The idea it brings parity is a fallacy. Removing the cap would mean better player retention, more kids playing RL and increased money into the sport. Could introduce income-related financial caps so clubs don't overspend.
6. Why? This just decreases the talent level.
7. Agree, as long as the Championship gets more support.
8. Too many for a 14 team league.

I'd be happy if to sport had some kind of decent plan for the future, without the gimmicks.

Getting rid of the loop fixtures and having 14 clubs in SL would be great.
However, the Sunday 3.0pm kick off would be a non starter. Most clubs have moved to Friday evenings because they feel it's more beneficial for them.
This can make travelling across The Pennines a pain in the backside but, this isn't the issue that's killing the game.

Although the game is skint, THE biggest issue in the medium and long term, is lack of kids playing the game and this needs some serious thought and investment.

The way that things are going, there simply wont be enough decent youngsters coming through to sustain a professional sport in the medium / long term.

Get rid of the cap so Mike Coleman can properly spend his cash. He makes Simon Moran look like a pauper.

If we got rid the cap, St Helens back line would look like this

1. Jack Welsby
2. Brian To'o
3. Tom Trobjevic
4. Lattrell Mitchell
5. Josh Addo Car
6. Jarome Luai
7. Nathan Cleary

That would make the game of rugby league massive in the UK and would bring thousands of kids into the game at grass root level
