More I thought about that system warhorse, I think more I like it. I know how things changed at end of super when I was at Qld, and not just for Prems, but grades below. It's not something needed here in NZ fortunately, as club season is drawing close to finals anyway, but if we were in same situation I would recommend it here.The QRU is trialling a system that has been used in the Shute Shield in NSW for a number of years.
Every player is allocated a points value based on their level of experience e.g. Wallaby player or other International, Super Rugby contracted player, Academy player or Premier level player. Each player's points allocation can be "discounted" if they have been with the Club over a number of years, come through the Colts and Junior programs etc.
The total points value for the 1st grade team named each week cannot exceed 100 points/2nd grade 60 points.
It is in the trial phase at the moment and there won't be penalties applied at this stage.
