GIANTS chief executive Ralph Rimmer believes today's meeting of the 12 Super League clubs is one of the most important in the modern era.
Top of the agenda at the Wakefield summit will be the debate on the progress being made by the RFL over a new television deal.
Both the BBC and BSkyB have expressed their desire to broadcast Super League games next season - but with strings attached.
The current Sky TV contract comes to an end in December, and the 12 Super League clubs are anxious to get a new deal finalised so playing budgets can be planned more accurately.
As the situation now stands, Super League playing contracts for next season are believed to be subject to television deals, which is clearly unsatisfactory.
"Today's meeting is going to be big for all concerned," said Rimmer.
"I believe negotiations are progressing and we'll be brought up to date by the RFL executive of Richard Lewis and Nigel Wood.
"But time is starting to run out and every club is keen to reach agreement with the broad- casters as quickly as possible.
"Once we know how much money we'll all be receiving we'll feel more comfortable."
The RFL has twice rejected offers from Sky of £53m and £55.5m for the rights to Super League and Test matches.
But the League have also told clubs they are close to striking a three-year deal worth £12m with the BBC for the Tri-series featuring Great Britain, Australia and New Zealand and the Challenge Cup.
However, that offer is conditional to the Challenge Cup being moved to September, a time which has angered Sky who want a clear run to the Super League Grand Final.
Meanwhile, Giants winger Hefin O'Hare is in the Welsh squad for this autumn's European Cup series.
