Agree, could easily do this - egI suppose getting a former Storm boss to do it means at least he would know all about it. Basically it would seem that a few clubs would have access to quite a large 3rd party cash pool while other clubs wouldn't so again its an unfair playing field.
The Nrl needs to tighten things up including a salary cap with no 3rd party agreements in its own office which is becoming a retirement slush fund for admin staff.
As for the clubs this wouldn't be a bad starting point:-
set amount of 3rd party each club can use on players
one club players with 10 years to be exempt.
Yahooo but its probably to late. He has spent a fortune hiring people for cushy jobs at Nrl HQ.Dave Smith resigned.
Bombers bid chairman Craig Davison believes a second Brisbane NRL team is inevitable despite Broncos CEO Paul White's damning view on expansion.SMH: A second New Zealand team in the NRL would be known as the South Pacific Cyclones and play up to half their home matches in Fiji.
The consortium backing a Wellington-based team to join the NRL in 2018 has revealed further details of its bid, including the official name of the club and its plans to expand across the Pacific with the inclusion of Fiji.
A second Brissy team would be a good idea and take some of the talent away that the Broncos collect being a one team town.Bombers bid chairman Craig Davison believes a second Brisbane NRL team is inevitable despite Broncos CEO Paul White's damning view on expansion.
Brisbane Bombers boss Davison is unfazed after White dismissed the notion that NRL CEO Dave Smith's resignation could fast track expansion in Queensland.
It would make it like a super 15 rugby competition and while it would be nice it was a failed experiment the last time.Agree - I'd like to see SA and WA back in it.
Saints have the real south of Sydney (Botany Bay, Kogarah, Carlton, Hurstville etc etc) - down past the Illawarra.It would make it like a super 15 rugby competition and while it would be nice it was a failed experiment the last time.
You also come back to the issue of to many Sydney based teams. although they are slowly spreading out.
To all intents and purposes the Dragons have moved to the gong but the roosters and souffs overlap.
Manly has a large area but not the population of rugby league fans having grass cut the teddy bears.
The dodgies have the south west of the old Sydney while the tigpies have moved to the far south west.
You also have parra and Penrith claiming the west and the sharks the south.
Before they look at more interstate sides the Nrl needs to get back to grass roots local games for Sydney fans to give it more of a tribal aspect again.
While we don't need the flares and pre game marches the Nrl could have a close look at why the Wanderers soccer club is so popular.
Be nice to think so but the fact is the Dragons have virtually moved wholus bollus to the Gong. Kogarah gets some games but the big ones are either at ANZ or the Gong.Saints have the real south of Sydney (Botany Bay, Kogarah, Carlton, Hurstville etc etc) - down past the Illawarra.
