This past weekend saw the first ever Rugby League World Club Series. This is an expansion on the World Club Challenge which took place in previous years.

Last night saw the 2014 Sports Personality of the Year presentation and I can’t help thinking that the show and the award has become a farce.

Is it time for SPOTY to change the format of the show?
