    New Season starting mid-March - Tight year quality-wise with St. Helens and Wigan being the two stronger teams.

    Few changes in rules this year:

    1. 20/40, same as NRL
    2. One on one steal, same as NRL with players dropping off
    3. Moving of scrums same as NRL
    4. No more scrums from ball going into touch, same as NRL
    5. Handover for incorrect PTBs, again same as NRL
    6. Scrum break and penalties, same as NRL
    7. Despite bringing in NRL scrum rules, scrums will remain 'banned' with covid rules and will continue to be reviewed
    8. They are NOT bringing in the two point field goal 
    9. they are NOT bringing in the six again/set restart for 10 m offsides

    Can't wait to see how Leigh Centurions get on. On second thoughts, I absolutely can wait, it was such a dull, safe move by a dull and safe organisation to have them replace Wolfpack. Would loved York or Toulouse to have got the nod.

    Hope Leeds have a good season, but I'm really not fussed this year and that's the first time in a long time I've no real interest in Super League.

    Every sport has to deal with that. The problem with a sport like RL is they are probably more reliant on paying punters as the TV money will not be very substantial, certainly in comparison with other leading sports. Some of the smaller clubs may well struggle to survive in this environment.

    London Broncos have a lot of local players in their squad this year. Will be interesting to see how they step up from an academy side who were extremely competitive.

    The Championship is a tough League, with a lot of quality this season so might be a baptism of fire. Shame the coverage is virtually non existent.

    Broncos v York Knights in Challenge Cup is live on BBC iPlayer if you have access to it with VPN or whatever.

    Knights will probably have too much for the Broncos but hope springs.
