Yes, and this is very good, excellent. In Bennett we trust, and we have to start walking now we have crawled.
Baby steps are needed and this is a baby step. Same as Super League is going to have to crawl learn to walk again.
This weekend is a dead weekend. The Test Match between Australia NZ is great, problem is we then have a dead weekend and the other code gets a free shot at us .
So having another contest is great, i am not sure now where and when Samoa will play Tonga. That game is starting to get tasty as well on the calender.
So Kiwis Oz Friday Night, Fiji Samoa Saturday night, hopefully live on free to air, and City Country Sunday.
The calender for next year looks fantastic. Nines, World Club Challenge, That weekend i just mentioned, Origins and Finals plus great four nations, that should keep us in the news.
We now need to keep test matches flowing, quality matches, no junk-mail.
All these games should be on premeir sports which has grown a good following.
I still think the NRL can help grow the super-league,. after all, Australia and NZ are exotic places for English and French lads.
