The latest idea from the NRL is to make the finals a 10 team tournament with teams 7 to 10 playing n a wild card play off to open the finals series.

What a braindead idea.

Why reward mediocrity?

The winners of 1 vs 4 and 2 vs 3 would reach a preliminary final having played once over the previous 3 weeks.

Surely there is other ways to boost interest in the dead rubber end of season games, I think having a fortnight between the prelims and the grand final would be a much better idea than this.

The NRL is going backwards at a rapid rate

A better option would be 2 8 team conferences, play your own conference twice and the other once, half at home, half away with the alternate match ups the next year, finals top 2 from each conference with the next four made up of the best 4 records.

No way they could go to a full home and away scehdule, that's 30 rounds plus finals, add in end of season representative games, extra weeks to allow byes, origin and the elite players would barely get a break before starting the next season.

The best thing about the EPL is relegation. Maybe in 100 years it will be in one of our football leagues.

Totally agree...but I think two new teams are coming in so might work better then..

They need to consider a full revamp like the soccer did to convert from the NSL to the A League, to many in Sydney think they deserve a spot in the National competition because they had a spot in the Sydney suburban comp in rhe 1930s.

Sydney should have only 4 or 5 teams, they nerd to focus on market area similar to how the NFL does, 23 people at the Olympic Stadium looks terrible on TV.

Faces look VERY similar. Only seen one version of her naked though so perhaps need further evidence before confirming.

This 100% correct Afros

There should be a truly national, rugby league competition with Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, North Queensland, NSW Country (based at Mudgee), Brisbane North and Brisbane South, Central Queensland, Sydney, Sydney South, Sydney North and Sydney West, Canberra and New Zealand.

Play everyone twice for 24 matches.

At all NRL matches you would get a game between local teams, you would get a reserves and the main match.

However this will never happen while the NRL is full of politicians and people who can not see beyond their own selfish interests.

The wildcard system is a stupid idea, and acknowledgement that the game will not get as much for their product, at the next television deal.

Remember, it might take intelligence to be smart , but it takes experience to be wise

I'm thinking along similar lines Voyager, although I think Gold Coast is worth persevering with, they probably need a good spell of success to build a culture around the club.

I also think the Brisbane area can handle 3 clubs provided they are all not playing at Suncorp Stadium, I'd keep the Broncos there, look at a team out in the west, maybe even at Ipswich and a third up north either the Redcliffe Dolphins or even at the Sunshine Coast with the aim of having an NRL team playing within an hour of majority of the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Brisbane population. The Northern side would also provide a closer option for the Bundaberg and Fraser Coast region and the Western side the same for the Toowoomba and Darling Downs areas.

Oh that's right 2002, I missed that.

Shows what can be done with a great management structure, astute buying and a good culture. And all with a tiny juniors area.Thumbs Up

You forgot the 2 for 1 special of the uncle Nick salary cap, basically it means if you own an NRL club and your birth certificate contains the words Nick and Politis you get double the salary cap of any other club.

Fairly similar but they also have a no local rivals rule regardless of how good for the game it would be.
