    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

    Northern Conference
    North Queensland COWBOYS.
    Brisbane BRONCOS.
    Gold Coast TITANS.
    SOUTH QLD (new).
    Newcastle KNIGHTS.
    Western Conference
    PERTH (new).
    Parramatta EELS.
    Penrith PANTHERS.
    Wests TIGERS.
    Canterbury-Bankstown BULLDOGS.
    Southern Conference
    South Sydney RABBITOHS.
    St.George-Ilawarra DRAGONS.
    Canberra RAIDERS.
    Melbourne STORM.
    ADELAIDE (new).
    Eastern Conference
    New Zealand WARRIORS.
    CENTRAL COAST or NZ2 (new).
    Manly-Warringah SEA EAGLES.
    Sydney ROOSTERS.
    Cronulla-Sutherland SHARKS.

    Roosters
    Souths
    Wests
    Storm
    Perth
    Warriors

    B
    Parramatta
    Bulldogs
    Penrith
    Raiders
    Broncos
    Cowboys

    C
    Manly
    St George-Illawarra
    Cronulla
    Knights
    Titans
    South QLD
