    Golden Point ?

    I quite like the idea of both teams getting a competition point after 80 minutes but the GP winner gets two.

    It’s GP.
  3. True that. The RFL is becoming little more than an HR department for refs.

    Sky do streaming via Now TV. You don’t need a dish, just broadband.
  5. A deserved 10 match ban and I suspect absolutely no chance of another Toronto contract
  6. If true, then common sense has prevailed. Hurst was on the latest L1 podcast talking about how the south needs a pyramid structure. This looks like the start.

    The lesson for SL is don't hold Top 5 finals games at Old Trafford or the Etihad, which I doubt we would even contemplate.

    They have a c.A$2bn TV deal. I think I am right in saying that when the NRL Grand Final is played, rugby league will hold the top five positions for highest TV ratings of all Australian TV programmes aired this year. Not just sport. Everything. We can only dream of having that success here!

    Yes and, worse, it then cuts to the Patient Claim Line roulette wheel as if ref decisions are pot luck!!

    Agree 100% with all the above. I would think about hiring Will Perry off the Whippets & Flat Caps podcast to anchor Sky's coverage as I like proper broadcasters fronting shows. A southern, middle class voice would also challenge certain assumptions. Hemmings needs to be pensioned off. Bill Arthur may have to do for now but someone with more passion would be preferable. I'd then bin off Terry O'Connor and replace him with Brian Carney in the box with Barrie McDermott. Three in the box is enough but if we have to have four then Phil Clarke should be replaced by a more recent player. Stuart Cummings actually reduces the credibility of the coverage by frequently coming to a different conclusion than the actual video ref, so he has to go too. Angela Powers should be replaced by Jenna Brooks and we should see more of her as a touchline reporter. Jon Wells to continue his excellent studio analysis.

    Sky's coverage is done on the cheap, tired and old hat. We still have try music FFS, which was innovative in about 1987. Their coverage is also part of this apparent malaise.

    Paul McShane is tempting not only for his on-the-field displays but also his remarkable coaching of Hunslet Club Parkside. Does that count? Maybe it should.
