What impact will it have on the game over here and over in Oz in comparison to other sports?

Expect to see less Aussies in the UK and more poms and unionites in the NRL

Well they shouldn't have to worry about players going off to union or the ARL for a start and should be able to tempt a fair few union players to switch. ( they'll all have longed to play in the NRL for years of course) would be good to see a few high profile all black stars make the switch. I'd imagine quite a few of the best UK talent will be looking for Australian agents too. Dietry suppliment companies will also put up their prices...

Crusaders RL to get a franchise for 2012 onwards -WRONG
Widnes Vikings also to get a franchise - RIGHT
Crusaders RL to do the double over Widnes and finish five places ahead of them -WRONG
Widnes Vikings NOT to dominate rugby league in years to come! STILL TO COME

I wonder if all the fuss about the new NRL salary cap is a bit overblown. I think English RL players are likely to go and play there, but actually the cap is still pretty small in a global context. I'm not sure we are going to see massive swathes of antipodean RU players going to play RL when they can still earn huge amounts in French rugby.

A commentary team referred recently to a French rugby union club with a salary "cap" of around 20 million Euros. Ireland's fly-half, Jonathan Sexton, is rumoured to have been offered a contract with Paris-based club, Racing Metro worth around 750 000 Euros per year.

In other words, the likes of SBW will continue to be able to earn an awful lot more while playing rugby union in France or Japan.

Maybe, but what if the NRL expands, they'll be wanting quite a few high profile players mixed with journeymen for at least two squads (not including U20's and the rest).

If there is one thing the NRL has learnt the hard way, you don't go into expansion areas with a crocked team, you have to hit the ground running especially in a new area. You can get away with it a bit more if you are starting up a new club in heartland areas.

After the last 20 years in Australian RL, I don't think the new mob will be rushing into anything, but when they do give the go ahead to expand, you can bet the teams will be top notch.

Just to be clear, the French Top 14 salary cap is €9.5 (£8.12m) and the RFU Premiership cap is £4.26m, although there are credits that can increase this. The Pro12 does not have any cap, although the four Welsh regions have agreed to a voluntary cap of £3.5m for their 38-man registered squads for ERC competitions.

To compare, AUD 7m is about £4.5m
The cap covers the NRL squads of 25 players

The Aus S15 clubs recently lowered their salary cap... Union is in dire straits in Australia and you can bet your house that there will be a number of S15 players who come across.
