I'd go for 2 X 12 with P&R between the two
I'd love it.
On a £1.2M cap for SL2 and a £2.0M cap for SLI that's a potential £38,400,000 the clubs could then annually spend on players!.
But this year the top 24 clubs only spent about £21,000,000.
A massive swathe of cap will not be spent IMHO because it cannot be afforded by the smaller clubs, but for the richer clubs some will spend £2,000,000 on players.
And what you can be sure of IMHO is every top player and top prospect in the country will be at the top ten clubs.
This year I think HKR spent £1.1M on players and Leigh £235,000.
And thus it will come to pass IMHO that we will have a repeat of the early 2000's when P & R was rigged because when the SL clubs went down like Salford, Fartown and Cas they ALREADY had the players to gain them promotion back to SL at first go (even the hapless Fartown went straight back up undefeated I think).
The promoted clubs did not have the players and did not have anything more than a matter of weeks to find a competitive team.
For your club IMHO you need Mr. Nahaboo to deliver sustained riches, and Wakey and Cas to end up in SL2. If he does and they do you could become the "Calder" club Lyndsay craved............
