With the NSW Government announcing $1.6 billion in stadium development, rugby league benefits massively through the development of ANZ and Parramatta into modern rectangular stadiums.
When newly appointed CEO Todd Greenberg ruled out expansion, once again rugby league is the code that stands still while other codes are willing to expand their national footprint.
The very idea of the Gold Coast Bears is laughable. If it was to come to existence, you might as well thrown in the towel and give the Gold Coast to the AFL.
With Dave Smith gone, it seems that the power-brokers and the media finally got their wish with CEO’s departure. From the beginning, Smith had an uphill battle to gain support from the rugby league community because he wasn’t a ‘league man’.
Now that the North Queensland Cowboys got that maiden premiership after a 20-year journey, I wonder which club would be next to break out through and become premiers.
A team that started 0-3 at the beginning of the season, and got their first win through golden point against the Melbourne Storm in Round 4, has just taken out the NRL premiership.
