Yeah i think the Sunday Night will rate just as good as the Monday Night.
and it is easier to get to the game on Sunday than the Monday.
Win, Win

i think that is close to perfect that schuelde.
I am still not sold on the 6pm Friday though. i am 50/50 2 NZ teams would help that cause)

NRL CEO Andrew Abdo has told
@MCarayannis
that expansion is on the horizon.

Abdo declared that "By the end of 2024 we will know what it looks like for an 18th franchise and potentially beyond that. And going from 10 to 12 franchises in the women’s competition."

Good to hear. Needs to fix up the bye issue with uneven teams - but I think the NRL desperately needs to get into Perth - just need the cash to support it in the infancy. I would see Perth being similar to the Suns or Strom re: support there - a small to medium loyal base. I think they can't afford not to go to Perth to be honest.

Well said Fred. One of ya best pal, try to keep it up!

Perth should be a no brainer to make the game truly national. (Little Adelaide don't matter. They'll never have a team). There is a groundswell of support in the west with many Poms, South Africans and expatriates from the educated RL states now living there. Plus they have a nice rectangular stadium ready to go. I say bring back the Western Reds!!!!!!

The only expanding they are doing is putting new teams in their own backyards, lol.

Umm Skip 'ol son, the NRL has a team in New Zealand. The Australian Govt is going to fund another one out of PNG representing the whole Pacific region. That's kinda outta their own backyard pal. You know, like other countries. Meanwhile the Australian fumbling League 'expands' to tiny Tassy lolololololololol!!!!!

You might have to re-define 'own backyard' skip! You appear to be a dill pal. Time to hop off back to the bush. Away ya go!!!!!
