    I'm relieved at your post and rugby league should be and deserves to be number 1 by a country mile! Its a great code/sport but has neglected its public especially junior development. That's what Im seeing with thankfully some proactiveness as of this year.

    A better point is the game has changed either through necessity or design, neither automatically designates improvement. You're problem is if you got your 40/30 this week you'd want 40/40 next week

    Just for the record noone has suggested that an AFL team is happening in Newcastle? But what is reality is that not only in Newcastle but elsewhere in NSW has witnessed significant AFL marketing and development activity. Just making sure the awareness is there! So if the game of RL is arse f**ked that noone can state that they are surprised/shocked or didn't know it was happening. Just for the record for any hand sitters with blinkers on. This is not to say rugby league is not making progress in Victoria! It is thanks to the Melbourne Storm. For the record their are 10 Afl clubs in Melbourne with a million less people to draw from. No fan of the game but this is fact.

    In my opinion the game has mainly changes due to coaching tactics.
    I'd be reluctant to fit that in under your heading of "design" because I don't think the coaches were standing back and looking at the bigger picture of how we want the game to look when they came up with their numerous tactics (for example the wrestle). What they were thinking about was winning games. Thats fine thats their job. But the last ten years have taught us lets not leave coaches in charge of the overall design of the gameplay.
    There should be a committee of people who are solely interested in the game as a whole who are left in charge of the rules and NRL coaches should just about be seen as their enemy. It should be made up of people from lower leagues, high schools, Britain, France, PNG, NZs top league etc, that dude from Toronto etc.

    I don't think so. 40/30 is enough to deliver a more adventurous style of gameplay. Wingers would absolutely have to get back and cover the repeat set threat for most of the set not just last tackle. Which is all we really need.

    Not being rude but ‘noone’?? As a teacher I hope you aren’t passing this little nugget when it comes to marking English papers.

    They know out in Western Sydney they are after fans and people to go to the games which they are doing ok. The demographics will have most kids playing RL or RU. The stupid thing is that the NRL think this applies to the rest of the state and it doesn't
