But that doesn't stop people criticising the RFL for not taking SL to Scotland, Wales, Bristol, Birmingham, Barcelona etc. 


The issue is not that these places are not granted a spot in SL at the moment. The issue is that with the end of licensing and P&R being back (and P&R with its own RFL idiotic little tweak), these places have lost their only pathway to SL. The possibility of a new non-M62 club to ever took part to the SL has ended with the end of the licensing process (which doesn't mean that process was flawless obviously)
RL is too much of a geographical dominated sport to hope that an outsider could ever break in via P&R (RFL style P&R or otherwise).

Is there any chance of Nigel Wood to get axed anytime soon ?


How does it work anyway ? Who decides ?

There can't be an "Europe" competition that is run solely by a national governing body. That's a fundamentally flawed concept that leads to this kind of ludicrous decisions.

Teams in Pro D2 don't receive that much of money. It's about 1.8 M€ for TV rights and that's it. Still, it will be more than enough to outbid any Elite 1 club.


Fédérale 1 (40 teams) is a mix bag as it covers various different situations from full pro sides to semi-amateurish ones. Budgets (which does not equal playing salaries) range from 5.5 M€ to 0.3 M€ 


Toulouse had a budget of 1.8 M€ this year.
