Host Rod Studd is joined by former Cronulla Sharks chairman Damian Irvine, Richard de la Riviere (League Express) and Danny Lockwood (League Weekly).

Are the Super 8s play-offs proving their worth or are there simply too many games in this system and that’s starting to effect the attendances? Should we now go back to a one up one down promotion/relegation system and would a promoted club survive better this way? And just when you thought you you had heard it all, Adrian Lam returns to Wigan Warriors for a season as Head Coach keeping the seat warm for Shaun Edwards. Just some of the topics under discussion on Back Chat this week.

Rugby League Back Chat, sponsored by, is broadcast weekly on FreeSports TV, which can be found at Channel 95 on Freeview, 422 on Sky and 130 on Virgin Media.
