NRL add another team for 2023 season & we are stuck with a boring 12 teams playing each other up to 4 times per season.

Agree on the principals around the number of teams but more interesting for me is that the new team has a around 18 months to get organised. Not some knee jerk reaction that results in very little realistic opportunity to put a competitive team together in 3/4 months.

exactly, when we get a promoted team they get 1 year then kicked in the teeth after wasting thousands of pounds only to end up back in the championship?
