In Topic: RFL Proposals for New League 1 Structure for 2016

Today, 02:07 PM

It proves that the super league are only bothered about themselves when you look at the middle 8, and then you look at the top 8 most of it is decided

Cant see Leigh getting up now especially how Bradford are playing

 

Not sure what this has to do with Super League to be honest - the League 1 club must have made representation to the RFL to highlight the unfairness of this years fixture schedule.

 

At least with the new format everyone plays everyone else in the first 15-weeks before the split. The one glaringly obvious problem that still remains is who gets to play who home and away. Home advantage should not be underestimated (see Oldham and Swintons home form this season as an example) and there will be cries of unfairness yet again - which will eventually lead back to home and away ties - OR - splitting the league, which will not help the developing clubs.

 

The problem now being League 1 team would then have to play 28 fixtures, plus play-offs, challenge cup and friendlies - a lot to ask for semi-pro players. and what would happen to the I-Pro Cup? Can we accommodate a valuable sponsor elsewhere?

That seems a fairer system than this year arrangements. Not sure how they pick who plays home or away for the first 15-week stage of League 1 but at least all teams play each other before the split.
