NRL expansion put on hold for now
Posted 26 October 2012 - 10:55 AM
An extra game a week seems to be one too many to squeeze into the TV deal that'll run until 2017.
If it does take a few extra years for the expansion clubs talked about then the big delay will test their resolve.

Yet a quick look at the NRL.com release you see this graphic.

There's enough aussies playing in Super League already to make a decent team up! The next step is to go the whole hog and set up a whole aussie entity in SL ... or is that just a none starter??????
Unless this is a new, weird entity it will need spectators/fans to turn up and support the club. Hang on then ... maybe they'll just buy out an existing club and rebrand it?
