The Vision

 

The new Super League competition will see the league split into two divisions of twelve, a new Super8s phase of the league and the excitement of the play-offs and Grand Final.

 

The aim is to deliver even more thrills and intensity for the audiences both at home and in the stadiums, as well as enhancing the competitive battle and jeopardy between teams in all divisions, making sure ‘every minute matters’.

 

With battles for the play-offs, the fight for the Super8s and promotion and relegation, it promises to be the most exciting season for many years.

 

The top twelve clubs have never been more closely matched and this will be even more intense in 2015.
