P/R probably the most commented subject of the forum. One more possibility, not totally thought through but maybe worth a discussion. The main problem of the present system is the amount of "dead rubbers" in SL and the lack of aspiration for Championship clubs.
Maybe a 2 year turnaround would be possible. The SL clubs finishing bottom would gain 1 point, second bottom 2 points etc. The club with the least points after the 2 seasons would be relegated. In the Championship the top team in the league would gain 10 points, 2nd 8 points,3rd/6, 4th/4. In the play offs, ( a 4 team play off) the winner would gain 10 points, runner up 8 points, s/finalists 6/4 points each. After 2 seasons the club with the most points would be automatically be promoted (if they wished to).
This would give the promoted team a 2 year period to establish themselves and the relegated team 2 years to re-group. The advantage of this system is that every game in every season would be crucial. In S/L, the team finishing bottom would need to improve drastically in season 2 and the clubs that finished 3/4/5/6th bottom could not relax and have a terrible season 2. Anybody that finishes bottom for 2 seasons running do not deserve to be in S/L anyway. If 2 teams finished with the same points, points difference would be the deciding factor making blowouts crucial to avoid.
In the championship both league position and play off success would be pivotal giving every game an extra edge. A team finishing 4th would need to beat the top team in the s/f to equalize the points differential. This is over 2 years so the most consistent/deserving team would be promoted. At the moment RL seems to have hit a brick wall with some SL teams stagnating with no threat of relegation and an apathy in the Championship with no rewards for ambitious clubs. This way the promotion would be decided on the field not by some dubious "committee" with ever changing criteria. It also may help to encourage investment in Ch clubs from businessmen who could see a level playing field and a path to SL. This would stop the ludicrous situation last time where Widnes won 1 cup in 3 years and finished 3/4th in the league yet were promoted.This is not a pop at Widnes but if the above system was adopted you would have to finish top/ GF winners to be promoted, making a compelling competition. No doubt there is probably a big hole in this idea but the need for a more competitive RL and a pathway for ambition is imperative for the future of the game.
