How would abandoning Adelaide improve the game there??? Anyway, there will be a State of Origin match at Adelaide Oval next year.Yes, the SA competition has been plagued by some issues. Now no longer compete in U15 or U18 Schoolboys footy. So maybe just forget about Adelaide unless they can offer more then WA or VIC governments.
The NRL isn't doing enough. Adelaide used to have it's own pro team (Adelaide Rams). Having some NRL games there (and a State of Origin game there next year) is good, but it should have its own NRL team, and so should Perth. That would make the sport bigger in both cities. The NRL should invest in that like they did Melbourne.I don't remember seeing league played much in Adelaide. Is there no interest there?
