We would go alright in the regular season, probably finishing somewhere between 5th and 8th. We aren't composed enough to finish any higher. Then it would get to the playoffs and we would go out first week.

well we all know how fantastic the NRL so any SL would be thrashed every game.

on a serious note, would take time to adjust to the new intensity but given how well British players are performing out their I'm sure they would improve. After a season they would be more than good enough. All depends how quickly they adjust.

Are Saints also allowed to spend an extra £3m on the cap before the season starts to level things up?

I think any team would struggle initially and that it would take a little time to adapt and get used to the intensity of the NRL. The same players based in Australia and with the same levels of off the field and back house would though do okay though and get better as players. There are plenty of fairly average Super League players that have done well in the NRL because of the more professional environment there and the higher levels of skills and intensity that they are exposed to. There is no reason to think that this wouldn't also apply to a team.

How would the Roosters do in the SL if they had to shed to a cap of £2m plus a couple of marquee players?

Like every other Super League team they would finish bottom.

You obviously haven’t watched the Gold Coast Titans this year.

They would probably finish bottom two. 

Realistically, half the starting 17 match day squad would be reserve graders in the NRL playing in NSW or QLD cup. Any team in the NRL that has Lachlan Coote as there best player will get no where near the 8.

If you combined the best match day 17 between Saint Helen's and the worst team in the NRL being Gold Coast Titans - which team would be more represented?

Knowing Nick Politis they could probably somehow retain the same team

I disagree, bottom 8. I think the Gold Coast's 1st XVII would beat the Saints' 1st XVII on neutral ground.

Lachlan Coote isn't even their best player. He has also won a NRL Grand Final and played over 160+ NRL games, he obviously didn't do too badly in the NRL.
