Hey guys you can shout me down as another Aussie who dosn't get the English game if you like,but I was thinking to myself the other day about how much I hate summer over here in Aus because there is no RL. It made me think that perhaps there is an opportunity for Super League to cash in on the Aussie tv market by starting the season in April (maybe Easter weekend) and finish in mid December.
Some pros for this would be Australian superstars like Billy Slater, Greg Inglis or even your own Sam Burgess could jump on a plane soon as their NRL season finishes and have a mini stint ala Andrew Johns at Warrington. It would even be possible for mini Kangaroo tours to recommence with say four club matches aswell as tests rather than the shotgun tours we get now. We would also keep summer rugby and all the benefits that entails. My only downside is what would happen in a World Cup year. Now over to you guys to be shouted down.
