Only 3 options as the status quo is a non-starter apparently.

 

The new options

Option 1 - Super League reverts to a 12-team competition (from 14) and a 10 or 12-team Championship, with one club promoted and relegated each year.

Option 2 - A two-division Super League with each division comprising 10 teams.

Option 3 - Two divisions of 12 in Super League, with teams playing each other once to provide 11 fixtures before splitting into three groups of eight in mid-season and then playing each other home and away to provide 14 more matches.

Each of the three groups in the third option would conclude with a play-off series and a Grand Final or play-off final. The final standings at the end of the regular season would determine the make-up of the two 12-team divisions for the following season.

The third option would mean two teams being relegated from Super League at the end of next season.

I would love to know how option 1` would work ,when expecting a team's full time professional side to go out & work for a living if the team gets relegated...on the other hand  could anyone really expect a part time player with a good job to give his job up to become a professional rugby player for what might be one season. Who ever came up with this idea at RL HQ is surely a cretin.To have any chance of  P&R working, the divisions involved would have to be paid on the same basis ,either full time pros or part time with other jobs. This latest move by the hierarchy smacks of desperation & in all honesty i think our game is fast approaching the point of no return regarding its future lifespan.The rule changes to so called  make the spectacle of rugby league more exciting are laughable & are doing nothing  but turn the games into mistake fests  with the likely winners being the team who can hold the ball ....or more likely Rugby Union !
