There are several board members at the six breakaway clubs who are opposed to joining the new league but they feel they do not have the power to stop it.
The owners of the clubs involved were fully expecting a backlash to the super league plans but were 'not worried' about bad PR. “Our primary job is to maximise our revenues and profits. The wider good of the game is a secondary concern.”
It's also been suggested that the club owners would be 'secretly delighted' at the prospect of players not being able to play in international fixtures and if the clubs were to remain in the Premier League then the clubs would focus on midweek Super League games as a priority.
