Ten year deal started in 2014.
I'm gonna be greedy and hope we game in Perth this year.
Perth get Souths games I don't think they will interfere with their territory.
Same as Panthers and Bathurst.
You could be right. Its just the talk about doing it in conjunction with the NRL has me thinking. The NRL have taken tests here, world cuo this year, SOO in a couple of years and the double header next year. What other area would the NRL be interested in?
Dubbo, Tamworth, Mudgee, Wagga Wagga any of those major regional cities, plus their is Queensland to think about too.
Yeah, I suppose it could be anywhere.

Interestingly the dragons are doing the exact opposite to us with 5 games each at kogorah and wollongong next year consolidating their base support.i can support the idea of taking the game to country centres but will be less impressed if they go to state capitals like perth or adelaide.

I think we will see every sydney team taking 2 games out of sydney eother every year or every 2nd year. Tigers wont be the only ones just getting in early

Gosford would be hardly and "exciting" Initiative you'd think.

Looks like we drew the short straw in the "Who goes to Perth for a match" game this year.
If coming to WA is in fact on the cards it is hardly a short straw. Against a half decent club, weather permitting, it will draw 15-20k. Hope it happens.

I'd be happy with one game at Campbelltown wearing WT Maggie heritage and 1 at LO wearing Balmain heritage.

The rest at ANZ. Better facilities, better everything. Who gives a toss if it looks empty.

As for the home games they want to take away, Im good with it provided it's at a neutral venue. Not in Wellington playing NZ or Darwin playing Nth Qld.

At least with our ANZ package we get to see 8 games , I never understand the thought process at work at the Tigers from next season playing out of 5 grounds .My thought of playing out of the most advanced stadium in the country in the heart of the city that will easily accomodate an increasing membership will be not happening ,obviously the club prefers its supporters to stand on a grassed hill and if very successful thousands of fans not being able to gain entry.
The club still can not come to terms with its identity , the fan base will never be one as long as there is multiple grounds ,I live in hope that one day there will be real leadership at the top that realise what they really have instead of being stagnated in there decisions.

Does anyone know how long until our deal with ANZ ends? I'm all for games out of Sydney but I was hojng they'd be at the expense of ANZ....not Leichhardt and Campbelltown
When you have kids, ANZ is the best. Easy to get in and out, great facilities. Atmosphere is not the best, but overall I prefer it.

Hopefully they have a full-time move to a redeveloped ANZ in mind. I've never been able to understand 3 home grounds in one city.

Would be hoping to not play the extra two games in either Queensland or Victoria.

I would also be hoping that the Storm, Brisbane and Cowboys would be playing two of their home games promoting the game elsewhere.

That would only be fair, wouldn't it?

Hope it’s not WA. Would not be happy about that.

The club surely must be getting a nice earner to take 2 games away from its fan base,I personally do not agree with this ..already 3 home grounds in Sydney ,the club plead for memberships yet take games from the fan base .

Can someone tell me if the long term deal with ANZ is a good deal or was it stupid and how long the deal is for?

Huh...We were the only Sydney Club that didn't take a game elswhere in 2017...

South Australia will be 1 is my guess..

Thinking of locations we need to make somewhere our own.

Off the top of my head a few teams are working on external locations:
Parramatta - Darwin
Souths - Perth
Roosters - Gosford and Adelaide (I am assuming that 2017 wasn't a one off)
Penrith - Bathurst

Are the Bulldogs still doing Wellington?
Anyone else?

I would take one to country NSW to a town we can grow a base over a few years. Coffs, Wagga, Mudgee etc.

I am assuming the other will be New Zealand.
