Nine extended their broadcasting rights to 2027 which only mentioned an additional 3 games per season- assume this means further expansion is off the table til
You would think so.. it doesn’t make much sense negotiating a deal and then go and add another team. Sell in the extra team when doing a new deal.Nine extended their broadcasting rights to 2027 which only mentioned an additional 3 games per season- assume this means further expansion is off the table til then?
i wonder if they calculated on covid? I assume so.
NRL agrees to new five-year broadcast deal with NineNRL secures a new bumper five-year deal with Nine, while expansion to an 18th team is still possible before 2028.www.abc.net.au
Funding is already there based on the last tv dealGreat news this!, anything that strengthens Rugby League in NZ is good for the game as a whole. Would work well on many levels, question remains, who will fund a new franchise and where would it be located?
Not as much love for the idea from the initial responses on Twitter but it’s a no brainer isn’t it? Would help to develop further pathways into NZ and extend the footprint of the Nrl and rugby league generally in a more strategic way than it would if Perth got the nod I would’ve thought.Funding is already there based on the last tv deal
The verdict: The clubs want the NRL to venture across the ditch and add a second team in New Zealand. With 27 per cent of votes, a second Kiwi side received the majority of support ahead of NSW’s Central Coast and Perth (both 22.5 per cent). There’s also minor support for a team in Papua New Guinea, Central Queensland or Melbourne.
That’s terrible that 70% of clubs bosses think the cap is being rorted.Just to put that into perspective, it was a survey conducted by SMH between nrl club bosses regarding expansion (amongst other things). Full read here:
Teams are cheating: NRL club bosses’ concerning revelationMore than two-thirds of NRL club bosses believe there are teams who are rorting the system by facilitating off-the-books payments to their players outside the salary cap.www.smh.com.au
Beauty of stats, 30% of club bosses didn’t respond so that 70% is really 70% of 60%.That’s terrible that 70% of clubs bosses think the cap is being rorted.
Logically if that number of the most influential people in the system believe there is cheating, then it would indicate that it must be happening…
It would be a massive task, you would have thought Perth or another Queensland team would be next cabs off the rank and a better chance of success.I’ve said it before and will say it again , a 2nd NZ team won’t work.
No idea why a Perth team has not been adopted.
