Hello fellow forum members,
I just had a moment of brilliance regarding Halftime Entertainment.
We could have like an Auckland Nines series at halftime.
So how it would work:
Each of the sponsors across all NRL clubs would have to have a team of 9 or more players to play in the tournament. The players would just be workers who work for the Sponsor.
Then in the first 6 rounds of the NRL the home team’s sponsors will play off against each other.
Hopefully each NRl club can have 3 home games in the first 6 rounds.
Then after the club’s sponsors play off against each other the Nrl Club has to make the best possible team out of the players who participated in the 9’s games.
Then by the end of 6 rounds all 16 clubs will have an ‘all-star sponsor 9’s team’
Then in each game of the NRL at halftime each of the clubs 9’s team’s will play off against each other.
Then they all p;ay a regular season, the same as the NRL.
The top eight teams go through to the finals and play off.
Same format as NRL finals
Eventually we will have a champion 9’s team.
The winner will receive prize money for their club.
Let me know if this is a good idea or if I am going bonkers.
I am hoping halftime can become more entertaining an also spreading the 9’s format.
