A National Rugby League nine-a-side competition in Auckland would be the richest league tournament in the world, perhaps the richest sporting event in the country, and could rival the Wellington Sevens, its backers claim.

Reckon it'll ever get off the ground? Or will the clubs scupper it like they did the World Sevens?

I reckon this could be a goer and would be a great way to bring the season in.

If the prize money is tiered so all 16 clubs get a slice I can see them all being interested.
