Never mind that this new idea is based on tv rights and therefore financial considerations, I was still happy to have placed the notion in their minds, seeing as they'd obviously read my blog and decided to do something about it ! I'm obviously an inspirational blogger.
I think I'll blog about the Middle East next.
Sadly things are rarely what they seem and as I read more of the article, I got the definite feeling that the bright sparks at the Rugby League lost the plot somewhere along the (try) line.
Their new idea is to add more teams BUT add them from the same two countries - England and Australia !! So if their masterplan goes ahead, the top 3 teams from England's Super League will play the top 3 teams from Australia's National Rugby League. Brilliant.
With apologies to any fledgling teams from Mars and Uranus, I'm going to suggest they rename the competition so that these 6 teams will be playing for the Global Universe World Challenge Trophy.
I'm still pretty sure the games won't be shown in the US.
