zero assistance and zero special conditions.

they are building there squad from scratch with no help.
coaching, admin, trainers, all from the ground up.

they will receive $13million dollars just like every other NRL CLUB in 2023.

you would actually say they are disadvantaged heading into the Season.

I thought they could have marquee players - but I guess that must be a thing in every club? Do you think that will be the same say if a team goes to Perth? I suspect the dolphins will be quite strong - drawing on history and in RL heartland. I think Perth is a no brainer by the way.

As I have posted before, I don’t think it will have as much impact on the lions as it will the broncos…will take a couple of years for the excitement to die down to see the ongoing impact.

Perth? Fraught with danger…not sure the not so big v would want to risk it.

depends if Broncos get out of the bottom 3 where they have been for 3 years now..

if they are high flying in top 4
Dolphins will have zero effect on them.

it will actually propell them to new heights.

the Media focus they get is outright crazy, having this less focus will ease the pressure.

(it is exactly like the Adelaide Crows and Port in 1997

I don't think so, have the same salary cap as all the other clubs as far as I know.

They will become a big deal next year though. Especially with Queensland having twice the number of NRL clubs as AFL next year.

the traction the Dolphins will give to rugby league in QLD will be nothing but positive..

There was nothing but positive when

Port Adelaide and Fremantle entered the AFL to cross town rivals crows and eagles
