Ok so it’s not a real thing, but a few People in http://www.reddit.com/r/nrl were talking about a ‘Championship Belt’. The basic premise is there’s a fictional ’ Championship Belt’ that’s held by the previous years winner (in our case the Sydney Roosters). This team holds the ‘belt’ until the next round, where that teams opponent for that week will ‘challenge’ for the belt. This is How this year has gone…
Roosters - 2013 Premiers
Round 1 - Rabbitohs def. Roosters = Rabbitohs
Round 2 - Manly def. Rabbitohs = Manly
Round 3 - Manly def. Eels = Manly
Round 4 - Manly def. Roosters = Manly
Round 5 - Tigers def. Manly = Tigers
credit goes to /u/SKiiTTLEz for the idea.
come on fair suck of the sauce bottle

They’re betting on this too
Some tipping comps.have included this as well
The first pay out (in betting) was after round 5, guessing we are a blow out for the winner at this stage
In NZ NPC rugby there is a trophy that works exactly like this known as the Ranfurly Shield, it is a huge deal!
They only need to defend it at home, but can elect to defend on the road….but similar concept.
Something different I guess
As long as we don’t let Parra win it in two weeks time
Parra fans will cling on to anything at the moment
Imagine the conversation in 20 years time
“Parra haven’t won a premiership in almost 50 years”
“Yeah but we held the belt from Round 7 to Round 8 in 2014”

No way I’d bet on this thing, the possible permutations are impossible to predict. One upset and all the combinations change.
It’s not even that the best team in the comp is most likely to win the championship belt.
