    With Souths and St George Illawarra having the Charity Shield televised on foxtel as well as the Broncos vs Warriors and Easts vs Wests brings me to two questions.

    1. Do these clubs get extra money from foxtel for staging these games?
    And
    2. If so who can we play?

    It wouldn't surprise me in the future if the R2R or B2B will eventually get televised.

    Parra usually plays Penrith this weekend for the 'Battle of the West'

    Dogs play Raiders.

    So this might seem a little out there but here we go :

    Sharkies for the Steve Rogers Cup

    For old time sake play Norths (Souths can stack it if they want)for the Ken Irvine Cup

    Perth at Perth could be good.

    PNG resident's side are still in Oz playing a few games against Qld Cup teams.
    The bulk of the good players have returned to there Championship sides in England by now.

    If the US or Canada could get a descent tv deal maybe against the Tomahawks (US) or the Wolverines (Canada).
    While the US seems to be the great hope the game appears to have exploded in Canada.

    Lately I've really enjoyed parra, broncs, knights rivalries. But not sure I want them smashing each other 2 weeks out from the seasons.

    Ratings for the Charity Shield blew everything else out of the water (afl, a league, s15)
    Yesterday's trials also rated well and had only a 1000 less viewers then a rugby union grudge match

    Charity Shield, Foundation Cup...I say leave them to it. They can't make the playoff for a legitimate trophy so they invent one and only invite themselves :p

    North America (Canada and the USA) has around $00 million people.

    We should play a US or Canda rep team in the northern henisphere.

    But of course the NRL doesn't want to promote the game does it?

    Maybe we should play Cronulla - "Battle of the Beaches Cup."

    This is by far the most feasible suggestion, and given our fan-base north of the border, it could end up being a success.
