I would never dream of forcing clubs into SL and if a club did not want it, I have no problem with that.  But I do think that the system is helpful in that it allows those who want to, to give it a go and if it does not work the drop does not have to be financial suicide.  It just feels like a system that allows clubs to play at the level they are comfortable with without arbitrarily putting a barrier in place.

That's fine, but Superleague is what keeps the game alive and is the only vehicle we have to take the game forward, worrying about clubs that may want to give it a go, and if it doesn't work, worry about their finances is very insular and inward looking.

The very survival of the game as a serious mainstream sport depends on concentrating on developing the product that sells. Like Warrington.v.Hull tonight.

And it ain't about managing failure......IMHO of course....

By the way, if you can explain it and make it sound, I'll believe you.
