Your Opinion on were Two New Teams Should Be Based In the NRL

Post by TheDaBoss » Fri 07 Sep, 2018 9:39 am

This was in the survey, though a team based in papa new guinea, another team in new zealand or one in WA

surely it should be called International RL - in olden times NZ and NG were "part" of australia. Include all the Islander teams and Australian state teams and only have one big round. Get Virgin to sponsor for all free air tickets. Have the teams based in Oz to save on money and aeroplane pollution.

Central Coast would definitely be one. I’d love to see the CC Bears playing in black and red and taking home games to North Sydney Oval.

Not really fussed about where a second team would come in. Maybe Perth.

PNG is a no brainer - although the problem is going to be attracting players NOT based in PNG to go live in Port Morseby.

I agree with a Western/Perth based team as well - I think they should cash in on all the SAFA's over there and the popularity of the western force.

Otherwise a Central QLD team, a second Brisbane team, or another NZ Team.

They need to add a team in Perth and a team in Adelaide

I’d go where the population is. So, another team in Brisbane, a new team in Perth and another team in Melbourne. Also consider a PNG side. A 20 team competition with 2 additional games per week.
Need more props.

All I will say is that a Central Queensland team will NOT work. I live in Rockhampton where the CQ Capras are based and Rocky is a little country town compared to Townsville.

My question is, how do you get a 20 team competition to work fairly? The current 16 team draw is ridiculous.

Totally agree CQ ,

Ipswich and a second South Island NZ team

People from Ipswich hate Brisbanites and vice versa

Perth definitely will be one. The time slot fits perfectly with pay tv. Second team I'm not sure about. I don't think they'll go the the central coast.
No more plodders!

Perth and Adelaide for me. Another Brisbane team would not expand the game, NZ doesn’t need another team considering the record of the Warriors, and PNG would struggle to attract players.
Year of last finals appearance:
2018 - Roosters, Storm, Rabbitohs, Sharks, Panthers, Broncos, Dragons, Warriors
2017 - Eels, Sea Eagles, Cowboys
2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans
2013 - Knights
2011 - Tigers

Perth is the obvious one and I'm not against Adelaide and making it a national game. But I'm not sure we have the leaders to be aggressive in expansion.
Another Brisbane team would dilute the Broncos advantages.

I would have Brisbane II and Perth brought in ASAP. Then, in the next 5-10 years add teams from Adelaide and NZ II.
