NRL and AFL Finals

September 21st, 2009 at 11:39pm

Good evening Stuart,

I just heard your conversation about the finals systems used by the various codes, and it's one of my hobby-horses so I just have to jump in. The McIntyre system is better without a shadow of a doubt in my mind as it correctly gives the higher ranked teams a deserved advantage in the first week. I think it is completely reasonable to force sudden death on the bottom two teams, and give only the top two teams a guarantee of a second week.

The unpredictability of the McIntyre system is also much more interesting for the fans than the AFL's system.

Ultimately though, as you said, if you win your games, you will progress.

Best wishes,
Samuel Gordon-Stewart
