People have been talking about giving the Championship an edge. I propose that the GF winners could be given the warm-up game for the WCC. Quins have had it for the last couple of years but it would be a great incentive to Championship Clubs.
Featherstone, Barrow or Halifax v St George/Roosters etc. would have a real buzz about it and would generate a lot of income for the GF winning team. I would imagine it would draw 4-5,000 in its own right. It would be a good hit out for the NRL side who had just arrived.
The GF winners should also win the right to go into the CC draw at the SL club stage in 2011.
P&R and franchises are a different issue - they are here for the immediate future. I think this is the sort of thing the RFL should be looking at to spice up the Championship.
