Josh Lewsey was right to a point when he said teams should merge, there needs to be some consolidation in the game.

Another cross code experiment in the offing?
I don't like the idea, or anything that threatens gods own game but can we realistically sustain two codes in the long run?

The great thing about our game is its willingness to experiment and evolve, but is this a step too far?
