NRL to buy share of Super League

Remember, the discussions are about the NRL buying Superleague, not the whole game in the UK.

Superleague is the top division and is its own commercial business separate to the business the RFL runs. NRL would simply be coming in and running the top division and branding it NRL Europe or whatever, potentially picking the clubs they want, possibly doing away with P&R and growing the brands from there.

RFL would still be the governing body in England and would run grass roots and the national teams.

I think there is room despite soccer and Union to get more our own our game and big clubs over there. I'd pick 9 English clubs (including London), two French clubs and see if anyone was interested in reviving the Wolfpack at the top level.

NRL eventually has 32 teams covering Aus, NZL, PNG, Eng, France and Canada. Commercial potential is huge

NRL should run everything. Lower level becomes like NSW & Qld cup (it already is semi pro). NRL schedules international games, creates rules & collects all broadcast & sponsorship money which is distributed across all top level teams.
