The solution to the problem of semi-pro clubs finding the gap to SL too big to bridge seems to be to simply make promotion difficult. You have to beat professional teams with a semi-pro squad to go up. It's just a weak attempt at appeasing those who want proper P&R. What happens if after three seasons not one team has actually been promoted?
Ooooh a naysayer!
What happens is the new eight club Superleague simply rolls on and on.
What clearly will happen is the top clubs will continue to stay in the spotlight as they play their big games against each other three times a season or more

Yet somehow we are told by KPMG/RFL the "radical" new system which is a tyred old re-tread (geddit?) will be the saviour of the crowd slump.
It's a case of if you want P & R then go play it at the bottom of the garden and leave the big boys to play the real game. I wouldn't mind but the radical RFL have lost the biggest boy of all.
Time for the RFL to resign (no not re-sign)!
