PS threads are good for a laugh if nothing else. The sad thing for me is French Rugby League is a big a joke as PS.

That's a disgraceful thing to say. French Rugby League isn't that bad.

Is Super League currently broadcasted live in France? I think a second French team would attract more TV money from French Companys and in turn better sponsors. But unfortunatley there arent enough SL quality players in France to support 2 competetive teams. Maybe in 2015. I personally would like to see Widnes and Barrow added to SL in 2012 and expand to 16 teams. But again do we have enough SL quality players?

the cap has evened SL up a lot, promoted teams need a little time to acclimitise but will do okay, if the league scrutinises how teams currently get around the cap we could then see a more even competition

That's true to an extent, but you can still pretty much predict which teams will be contesting the big matches every year. Only 5 of the 14 teams have contested a GF. And not too many people would've predicted at the start of the year that Salford and Harlequins would be any higher than they are now.

As for teams getting round the cap, you're joking of course. Every team plays exactly to the rules, don't they? wink.gif
