The ARLC Should look into beating the AFL into Tasmania

Would Tasmania be able to support a full time team though? Surely the AFL would've put a team in Hobart before now if they thought it was sustainable. Doesn't one of the AFL teams (Hawthorn?) play a few league games there every year?
With a crowd last night of 11,752 at North Hobart Oval. For the game between the Melbourne Storm and the Brisbane Broncos the ARLC should look into putting a team in Tasmania or a struggling Sydney club relocating there. It would be good to see the ARLC beat the AFL into their own nursery.

The Northern Cowboys have pulled off a miraculous comeback to defeat the Southern Rabbitohs in the Grand Final of the Tasmanian Rugby League played at North Hobart yesterday.
Down 20 to 4 early in the second half, the Cowboys piled on 6 unanswered tries in a powerhouse demonstration of Rugby League.
The Rabbitohs looked unstoppable in the first half with the Papera brothers, Josh and Aaron, both crossing the line building on the momentum of the powerhouse Rabbitohs pack.
But poor discipline let them down in the second half and the Cowboys responded with front row forward and man of the match Tommy Dare blitzing the flailing Rabbitohs.
The Cowboys fitness was the key with AFL converts Geoff Croswell and Chase Scott having fine games in front of the big North Hobart crowd.
Cowboys coach, Jason Baihn also had a huge game ably supported by Wally Dare.
In the end the Rabbitohs simply ran out of puff and Vice Captain Willy Campbell was disappointed his Team lost its discipline on the biggest day in Tasmanian Rugby League history.
