Benji Marshall says the idea of relocating the Wests Tigers makes him feel sick amid continued speculation his club would be moved across the country. The Tigers have been mooted as one potential side to be moved to Brisbane or Perth as the NRL looks to expand. But speaking on NRL360 on Fox League earlier this evening, defended the Tigers and says any move makes him feel uncomfortable.
Marshall hit out at the NRL, saying: “It makes me a feel a bit sick. Relocation just doesn’t sit well with me and I know how passionate people are about our club.
“I would hate to see that happen to any Sydney club. I’m more in for expansion, Manly would be in a similar position. The Sea Eagles’ Joel Thompson, who joined Marshall on the panel and whose club is often mentioned as one potential relocation candidate, said: “To see them relocate the club would be heartbreaking. I think expanding would be the best option.
We’re crying out for a second team, at the moment everyone goes for the Warriors. I think down south — whether Christchurch or Wellington would be good, judging by how much Kiwi talent is coming through the ranks
