I remeber the GB team coached by Reilly. Probably what I'd consider as the best national side of my lifetime so far. I don't remeber him as a player but I've always been surprised he isn't still involved in the sport over here
We're told it's good our players head to the NRL because we'll have a stronger national team, in spite of our almost nonexistent international schedule. Yet union still seem to tempt them from the NRL.
Dont get me wrong, im not happy players are leaving SL, but not sure raising the sc is the way to go.
I'm not necessarily talking about raising the cap. Let's start off with keeping it level. Since the cap was introduced it has stayed static while the rate of inflation has slowly corroded it at roughly 3% per year. It's now lost nearly 40% of its initial value. It needs to be linked to inflation.
I know caveats have been added to allow some clubs to spend a bit more but surely that destroys one of its aleged goals, the mythical level playing field?
Let's stabalize the cap then in a few years talk about slowly increasing it.
