That's stupid.

9s team plays with 9, 13 plays with 13. 9s get bonus tries and have to drop-kick their conversions, 13s don't.
The off-season is obviously treating you well Nick. I got quite a chuckle reading through your post today. Some A grade pot stirring there! 👍

I’ll admit his sarcastic responses aren’t as nearly as humorous as when he’s try to be make a serious comment but I still got a giggle. Partly pity giggly but a giggle all the same.

Make the stakes important, I dunno, give the winner guaranteed 8th spot or something
Tigers to go all out!
They'd still find a way to finish 9th.

The solution to this tourney is to get outside the box with how the teams are formed that is commercially viable in a dead period of aussie sports (DRAFT... DRAFT... **** live TV draft ****, auction draft it if you must!), that allows the player group some freedom of expression (including team names, logos, marketing, jerseys etc) and the back the all the revenue that comes off that, and i promise you, it would be SUBSTANCIAL, offer LEGIT rewards... for a sqaud 16, as per this year, i think you need a pot where a member of the winning squad is taking home 300k each..

If you cant do those things, and maybe commerically it's not possible... then AFIAC, the tourny is not viable. You'll move the venue, it'll die, it'll come back 2-3 years later and we'll do it all again., but the key to making it a proper fixture is IMO to embrace the unconventional

I like the cut of your gib. Each player in the winning squad takes 1.768 points back for their team to start each match with, this aggregates for teams with multiple players. Any players that win the the 9s and NRL in the same series are automatic Kangaroos. MotM in the Nines final is given the Anthony Mundine medal.

NOW we’re starting to get serious lads!

These ideas, coupled with Fergus’ proposal of an automatic 8th spot for the 9s winner is really the shot in the arm the 9s tournament needs!

I don't particularly like 9's and don't really care how the Raiders go in it, but it's a nice preseason warmup for the fans.

All clubs should be required to field a minimum number of their top 30 squad, but beyond that I couldn't care less if there are some novelty selections or junior players representing each team.

I am with the others who are not a big fan of the tournament. It provides some interest when Fittler played but I don’t think playing Negas or Jason Croker got anyone extra through the gate.

Potentially you could have a situation where the winner got two competition points and the runner up one.

That would give it some interest and something to play for.
George?
I'd love to see George Negas rolled out for a game

Can't we just get rid of the 13's game entirely?

Just wrap the entire NRL season up on a long weekend then we don't need bye rounds for the best of 15 Origin series
