Sports Prophet Posted December 8, 2022 Share Posted December 8, 2022 12 hours ago, Iceberg Slim said: As a nz rugby league fan you would be primed right now to put a team in the south island once the new stadium is built Christchurch and have a team play at Christchurch and Dunedin with top quality stadia it would be perfect time to strike. I believe super rugby will soon go on a decline and if the all blacks fall well short next year I would push to have a 2nd nrl team in nz by 2025 or 2027 at the latest leading into a new tv deal. I think the loss of the South African teams has impacted the product and with the struggling aussie teams I can’t see the product getting any better. With a 2nd team in south island you would solidify the elite youth pathways to nrl and limit the Aussie scouts while giving New Zealand a game at home every week especially in the July-august time when super rugby has finished.
