NRL over taking the All Blacks in The General Rugby League Forum Posted 13 hours ago 8 minutes ago, unapologetic pedant said: If we reached a position in NZ where Warriors games consistently rated roughly the same as All Blacks games on FTA and Pay TV, this could be a huge advantage to League in terms of TV money and sponsorships given that however hard the NZRU milk the All Blacks, the Warriors will still play more games. That`s not to say we don`t want a vibrant international RL scene as well. It certainly would. Any League team rating the same as the All Blacks would be a huge success. And we definitely do want a vibrant international scene. While I argue that a strong NRL presence in New Zealand is a good thing, this doesn't have to be (and shouldn't) be at the sake of the international game, the two are not mutually exclusive.
