    I really don't think we should lose the GF, it's a big occasion, particularly for the broadcasters, to remove that then try to sell our sport to a broadcaster or a new deal with Sky would be catastrophic in my opinion.
    CC idea is interesting. Think that comp is rapidly in need of help

    Yup. Imagine not winning it this year. I'd be fuming me.

    The whole thing is a bit of a joke. Looped fixtures and a random set of fixtures for magic. When you think about it it's bordering on farcical.
    Your preaching to the converted with me pal , I'd go back to first past the post tomorrow.
    I just can't see it happening personally Unless the Australians do it in which case we would follow obviously!

    The Challenge Cup is the only Rugby League competition that is truly long lived. If Sky ever drop Rugby League or if another broadcaster gets the rights, the Grand Final will disappear to be replaced by whatever format is then seen as the best way forward.

    I think that if the Challenge Cup ever goes that will mark the demise of Rugby League. Its vital that it be valued and preserved and Upsides suggestion may be worthy of consideration.
