I doubt if the salary cap played a big role in this. NRL clubs don't pay big money for wingers - our NYC is full of star wingers. If I was a 20-year-old from Wigan and I could get paid to live on a beach in Sydney for a couple of years, I'd be there tomorrow.

 

Are you fast?  I'll pay you £120k.

God it's mad to be suggesting that these games aren't valuable.

 

It hadn't even occurred to me. 

 

It would be better if it were the top 3 Aus clubs but they wouldn't come so there we are.

 

I can't wait.

Surprised everyone thinks London will make it.  They had a shocking year last year and I think they'll really struggle this year.  Still lots of new faces and, I suspect, low confidence.  But I hope they do well.

This looks like a revenue-generator rather than a rule change because the game needs it.  For that reason, like Duncan Bannatyne, I'm out.

 

Maybe I'll become extinct, eventually starving to death as I scour the earth for a game with 2 subs, no interchanges, position (not squad) numbers on shirts, and proper 'oops and vees.

 

I don't resent them thinking about this though.
