We saw them compete with a lower end SL team. That is what we are talking about. Not the gap between Cc and SL overall.
Fev got one good result in the cup?
We're talking about a Superleague of two divisions, and the biggest problem is the gap between the two divisions.
The finest argument as regards SL1 and SL2 is that SL2 will be seen as the Championship no matter what label you put on it.
Second tier RL is second tier RL and unlike soccer there is a massive gap. It also does not attract many fans.
The top club in the RFL can attract 17,000 fans, ten places down they attract less than half that, another 10 places down again they attract less than a tenth of that.
For there not to be a gap that tremendous imbalance in income has to be rectified. That will cost a fortune in money SKY won't see any return on.
Creating schemes where the top clubs STILL get more money than the lower clubs will waste millions that could be used to make Superleague a vibrant game from top to bottom.
Why waste millions, why not invest it in the right clubs, the ones who attract massive gates and develop professional players, why not subsidise a Welsh SL team??
