  1. If I knew how I’d merge all the threads together.
  2. We’re now starting to get down to the nitty gritty and business end of the expansion debate with bids and dates being set.
  3. That was before the meeting was announced which is somewhat more pivotal.
  4. Will/could this be the most important date in the history of the NRL so far with expansion being discussed at the ARL commission meeting in Melbourne? talks of 18 or 20 teams with bids from a standalone Perth, New Zealand South Island, PNG and Brisbane being discussed as well as joint venture teams in the form of the north Sydney bears or the Newtown Jets linking up with the Perth bid. not sure if we’ll get the names of all 3 teams if the NRL is to indeed expand to 20 teams but more perhaps the entry dates of all 3 expansion teams. all very exciting stuff for NRL expansionist fans and should set the competition up for the next 20-25 years. my hope is we’ll see the following :- #18 perth standalone team #19 NZ2 South Island team #20 Brisbane/south east Queensland team
  5. Seems like the past 6 rounds or so have been massively affected by the weather. affecting the crowds as well which have been amazing considering.
  6. By letting all of their fans down by getting absolutely smashed by the bottom placed team in the comp.
  7. Warriors doing their best to f#ck everything up for RL in New Zealand.
  8. You can count the storm out for 2025. https://www.foxsports.com.au/nrl/nrl-premiership/the-time-is-not-right-why-the-melbourne-storm-has-decided-against-going-to-las-vegas-in-2025/news-story/2255a5c5afaa3ba694ccdccce144259a
  9. Absolute thriller of a game played in front of 25,167 this morning to get round 16 off with a bang. tomorrow mornings game between the titans and warriors should also be a cracker with a crowd of 20k+ expected on the Gold Coast with the warriors fans probably outnumbering the home fans.
  10. That’s exactly the huge risk a project like this is susceptible to and is ultimately at the mercy of 2 governments of the day in both Canberra and Port Moresby. There’s also the question of what happens next after the 10 years of government funding is up?
  11. PNG bid facing more and more pushback of late. https://www.theroar.com.au/2024/06/21/money-talks-but-does-600-million-speak-loudly-enough-to-make-png-feasible-for-nrl-expansion/
