Farrell supports Super League changes

03 January 2019

Wigan Warriors forward Liam Farrell has thrown his support behind the Super League rule changes for 2019 but believes more could be done to improve the quality of the competition.

“I don’t know if it’s something the players and the players’ union need to look at but we play enough games as it is,” he said.

“Some of these international lads have only just finished in the middle of November and we’re going to be playing again in January. It’s no time at all.

“I think it needs to be looked at and whether we take the number of games down, or take something out. I think someone needs to come up with something.”

“I like the idea of the stop clock, that’s going to speed the game up massively. Eight interchanges will be a big one and test a lot of teams,” he said.
