There's very few people with anything positive to say about the Super League, even Florentino Perez bizarrely claimed one reason for it was because younger fans won't sit for 90 minutes to watch a game.

Basically you'd have to not get the whole concept of the sport if you're all for it, and that's fine too but just accept it!

Gavin & Stacey actor Corden opened up Monday's edition of The Late Late Show with a brilliant monologue all about how the greed of the Super League would affect other clubs.

"I'm heartbroken by it, genuinely heartbroken by it. I'm heartbroken because the owners of these teams have displayed the worst kind of greed I have ever seen in sport," the West Ham fan brilliantly said.

Explaining the affect the Super League will have not just on the game itself, Corden said, "It's hard to express how much communities rely on football, not just financially, which is considerable, but football is a focal point of a towns hopes and dreams.

"These dreams, they've just been shattered not just in Britain, across Europe. And the reason the dreams have been shattered and discarded is so that a group of billionaires can buy themselves a bigger boat or a second boat.

"Football is a working-class game where anyone can beat anyone on their day and it's that that makes it incredible, it's that that's made it a global force.

"And if this happens, and unfortunately I really do think it will, I don't want to be overdramatic, but I do think it's the end of the sport that we love."

Imploring fans against the Big Six once more, the actor known for his role as Smithy, added, "Don't ever forget that it was them, those owners.

"They took something so pure and so beautiful and they beat the love and the joy out of it and they did it for money. They just did it for money. And it's disgusting."

Every word, utterly perfect!
