    Win the GF you get $500k (I think), when compared to that $100k for a pre season comp is ok.

    Considering it stated that it would be funded by a third party well im all for it. I am sure the broadcasters would get involved, so hopefully it means then that i get to watch MORE footy and more importantly manly EARLIER.

    The larger picture is that the NRL can increase their asking price in the next tv deal.

    I reckon it would be good, more league to watch what is wrong with that, but teams would have to play at least 6 or more under 20 players

    Why not just make the comp. for players that played majority of their games in the NYC or NSW/QLD cup during the last season?

    Future Stars Tournament or something like that.

    Sounds just like any other pre-season comp to me.  Distracting and prone to injure players.  Silly idea.  Whye don't they ust extend the season so each club players each other twice.
