It's all just speculation. Locking in Queensland teams for the only Friday night slot would be a disaster.

The scary thing is that both sides have the best interests of the child and game at heart, one approaching it completely from the view of not pushing competitiveness at too young an age (U7 does sound very young for full contact tackles) and the other from producing an entertaining, attractive (to kids and parents) and skillful game from a young age.

 

The thing that needs to be remembered though is that if you walk away from the national governing body, especially over child safeguarding, then you set yourself up for a huge and probably unmanageable risk.  No-one will cover your back if something goes wrong but you will find a lot of former "friends" willing to point fingers.

Kids that age tackle here in Canberra. The refs call held very early if a ball runner is a nervous type.

Even more competition for streaming rights. Could be quite profitable for the NRL. http://m.nzherald.co...jectid=11467422
