Swap Canberra for NZ2 and substitute NZ2 with the CC Bears
And you have a deal
Well then historically the bears would be in the first conference (08-21)
And canterbury would go to the next conference, then canberra to the next
It would be adjusted like so
Conference 1 (08-21)
Souths, Wests, Easts, Bears, StGeorge.
Conference 2 (35-67)
Canterbury, Manly, Parramatta, Penrith, Cronulla.
Conference 3 (82-95)
Canberra, Newcastle, Brisbane, GoldCoast, NorthQLD.
Conference 4 (95-now)
NZ, Perth, South QLD, Adelaide, Melbourne.
I doubt that CC bears would happen or that Canberra would ever get the arse. So no NZ2.
But isnt it interesting that Conf 1 & 2 match the proposed Sydney conference
And your Conf 3 & 4 match the proposed regional conference
For either 18 or 20 teams - with Newcastle moving to the Sydney conference if 20 teams and no CC Bears
Sorry but why bother having a National Rugby League, if all anyone wants is a seperated NSWRL conference, and then Rest (being regional)
I only stated if we went the route of dates entered the comp, thats how the 20 team comp would look like.
My Preference is a Geographical non-bias Conference that is Split into Compass points Northern, Eastern, Southern and Western.
This is by far fairer solution and will help spread out the Marquee players, whilst also create more local rivalries within each conference, which means more crowds going to those important grudge matches, because they are more valuable wins in the scheme of toping your conference
North Queensland COWBOYS.
Gold Coast TITANS.
SOUTH QLD (new).
South Sydney RABBITOHS.
New Zealand WARRIORS.
CENTRAL COAST or NZ2 (new).
Manly-Warringah SEA EAGLES.
Conferences should be named after great player and people.
I still think 20 teams is too much at this stage.
3x6 is my preference
Separate names with a comma.
