I kinda liked the two codes having different systems, made it more interesting. The Mcintyre system needed to be looked at though, so stuff like 2006 doesn't happen again, where Newcastle (4th) beat Manly (5th) first week, and Brisbane (3rd) beat St George (6th), and the two winners were 'rewarded' by having to play each other, 3 vs 4, meaning they had a much tougher game than the teams they beat, who were 'punished' by getting to play each other, 5 vs 6, giving them an easier game, when it should've been 1st week winner vs 1st week loser, 3 vs 5 and 4 vs 6.
Hopefully they also sort out the 'home reigon' BS that meant the Manly vs NQ game last year was at the SFS, despite the fact they knew no Manly supporters would make the effort to travel into the Eastern Suburbs for it.
