Whilst I applaud this move, adding an extra team to an already established nrl heartland instead of growing the game in other Australian states, is not really that adventurous. So they’re looking to grow the game in Brisbane? In saying that, Brisbane does need another side... should have had one 20 years ago. They’re a long long way behind I guess. Could they not add two teams ... one in maybe perth ?

dam right it is a move that it is 15 - 20 years to late. (but that is the NRL for you) let broncos have too much say and do nothing..
I get why they are doing it and its very smart to do it so many benefits.
a Game a week every week in Brissy... well overdue.

and Yes its not really expansion, its tightening up a already strong market and making it stronger, which is guaranteed to lift crowds
and make Media Networks happy with the ratings.

I think you will fine, the NRL will not stay at 17 teams for too long.. I suspect an 18th team 2 or 3 years later.

Former South Sydney powerbroker Shane Richardson pulling strings at NRL expansion bid hopeful

He helped lift South Sydney from rock bottom back to the pride of the league and now Shane Richardson has become the secret weapon in the Brisbane Firehawks’ bid to win the NRL expansion race.

As anticipation builds that a new club will be given the green light to enter the national comp in 2023, The Daily Telegraph can reveal that former Rabbitohs boss Richardson has been working behind the scenes for the past four months to help his old club Easts Tigers, who are backing the bid, to put together a highly-detailed business model.

Richardson was reluctant to talk about his involvement when contacted on Monday but insiders claim his experience and expertise will be a key factor when it comes to the NRL judging which bid gets the go-ahead.

Other bid teams include the Brisbane Bombers, Ipswich and Redcliffe Dolphins.

I think this Puts the Jets in the box Seat for the 17th team

Bombers and Western Corridor join forces in Brisbane expansion bid

BRISBANE JETS (BJ'S) lol

Brisbane Bombers director Nicholas Livermore hopes a merger with the rival Western Corridor bid team will help convince the ARL Commission that the 17th team NRL team should be based in Ipswich

Fred, you are so funny, Green with envy. They have teams in the areas there interested in as well as having a team from overseas in there competition. On top of all that they have other international teams playing in the lower grade, and plenty of other overseas interest makes your mob look very kindergartenish :rock:

True!!!!! No doubt the game plan is to have a 2nd Brisbane team, which is a no-brainer, and down the track have a team in Perth. Although I also like the idea of having a 2nd NZ team. If PVL keeps kicking goals I can see no reason we can't have all three.

And then there is PNG. A team up there would get fanatical support. The problem is that the local economy wouldn't add much to the team or comp in general. They would need the financial support of the govt. But bearing in mind RL is the national sport of the country that wouldn't be out of the question. No doubt Peter The Great could make this happen.

Same with tassie for the afl ... plenty of support but not the financial clout I’d say.

Re: expansion ..I think they really need to grow the game in Australia outside of nsw (act) and qld. But that’s just me. And I think the have done perth well or better than they did with Storm by growing grass roots a little .. but they need a team in the nrl to follow now. Storm were just plopped in Melbourne and whilst there has been some effort of late, grass roots remains basically non-existent with on tiny league for the state with about 13 clubs.

Not quite the same as Tassie Freddo. The population of PNG is neary 9 million. Tassie is 500k. The difference is that PNG is basically a 3rd world country. However being the national sport Gov't backing could guarantee them financial security.

The bigger problem would be getting Aust. and NZ NRL players to move to PNG to play for them. I mean......it's not exactly a tourist destination. Player signings and retention would be a nightmare.

Fans to help Dolphins choose name if club granted NRL licence

We operate from Brisbane north through the Moreton Bay region and the Sunshine Coast corridor, and the Moreton Bay region is actually the third biggest council area in Australia and the fourth biggest is the Sunshine Coast.

"The Moreton Bay region is set to grow by 15 per cent in the next 10 years and the Sunshine Coast by 25 per cent so we are conscious that we have got to appeal to more than just people in Redcliffe and the Dolphins as an NRL entity will hopefully do that."

The Sun State Dolphins and River City Dolphins are quite popular but when it is time we will seek input from the community to suggest names,

he club has been ensuring it was prepared for the next opportunity to join the NRL and boasts a shopping centre, fitness and aquatic centre, boutique stadium and 40,000 leagues club members
