Re-structure proposals

Recommended Posts

I had a dream last night. In it we were still in the Championship next year. A fairy godmother waved her wand and instructed the RFL to do away with Championship relegation this season as they are proposing to do in Super League. She said that because Featherstone & Toulouse will be in the expanded SL next year, its only right that the Championship should keep the same number of clubs as this year. So, she said, Oldham and Swinton should be spared and two clubs promoted from League 1 to replace Fev & Toulouse. 

Then I woke up!

The proposal, so far, is that the Championship will only have 12 clubs next season. I would have another snooze if I were you.

From what can gather is that next season there will be 14 superleague teams, 12 championship teams and 10 league one teams. Then at the end of next season the bottom 4 teams of SL will then form SL2 with top six of the championship. So there will be ten teams in SL1 and ten in SL2. The rest will be in the championship or whatever name they come up with. With the possibility that some teams in the third tier will be ditched.

Very true moorside Very true

I think we've talked rugby league to death over the last few months. The only thing we can hope for is that we still have a club to support after all the changes. It'll all come out in the wash.

That is not insolvency but simply an extract from balance sheets. All will be going concerns and able to pay their costs as they accrue. Most creditors consist of directors' loans which are very rarely called in.

This is not to say that any of our clubs are in a healthy financial state.

(BTW can you give us the same analysis for Man Utd for example?)

manchester utd have assetts of billions, glaziers are billionaires

the   rugby league championship is in a financial mess,and if their funding is cut they will need more backing from directors and supporters  in this terrible time for businesses  and people, how long will they keep propping these clubs up.

look at the gates since they reopened their stadiums rugby league is a disaster waiting to happen.

A lot of those debts will be directors loans.

 And has been suggested these loans are generally not called in,not that the clubs could ever afford to pay them back.

Now if the creditors are say HMRC then there is a big problem.

But if say a director at any club decides to put in say £1m then to my knowledge it is put down as a debt for the benefit of the balance sheet.I assume that this has something to do with tax,an accountant would no doubt know the answer to that one.

The RFL don't have much money.
Super League don't have much money.

The rest have even less money.  

Thats the nub of the problem.  


(and yes super league have more money than the rest, but compared to other sports they are on a shoe string).

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

For the majority it’s to finish in high enough a position and a sufficient financial state to attract god enough players to push for the higher league the following year- feels like an all or nothing push. 

Dont think there will be any promotion in 2022
