Rugby League is not the only game where we have the same clubs at the top each season as football now has a Premiership where now, every season, we see the same handful of the richer clubs are at the top and the rest just making up the fixtures with clubs like Fulham, Norwich City, West Bromwich etc are relegated and promoted on a regular basis.

Perhaps the time has now come for the FA to follow the example of Scottish football, where they have lower the number of clubs in their Premiership which has made games more competitive in spite of Celtic and Rangers being the top two clubs every season, just like Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City have been in the English Premiership of recent seasons.

A Premiership division of only ten clubs playing each other twice at home and away would be far more competitive than the present Premiership.

I feel sure supporters would welcome anything where they are getting better value for money than many of the one sided games that take place in the Premiership now.
