Super League revamp

The northerners are a jealous lot, especially the weirdos in Hull.

They have made a hostile takeover of the association in a belief that have been held back from vast riches and worldwide popularity, and are particularly hostile to the Rugby Union code, who they seem to think have held them back in some way, going as far as to actually slag off prop forwards as if they aren't sportsmen.

The truth is lads that Rugby League is a boring and crap sport regardless of the athleticism, and that just by playing a Superleague match in Australia, and allowing in a Canadian team, doesn't make Rugby League "truly global"

I love how he frames it as snobbery against the North. Most people in the North aren't that bothered by Rugby League either outside of some big towns in Lancashire and Yorkshire like Hull, Wigan and Leeds.

The issue is far more than just sending games abroad to drum up intrest. I mean Manchester hosts the Grand Final every year and never sells out. This despite being close in travelling distance to nearly all the finalists in recent years and thousands of potential attendees living nearby.

They don't need to revamp the league they need to revamp the rules. 15 a side, scrums rucks and mauls is a start
