    It only holds 15,000. There's your answer, move Sydney clubs into 15,000 stadiums so the grounds dont look empty!

    I went back about 6 pages looking for one and couldn’t.
    So I started this one.

    Funny how now you have finally worked it out.
    I’ve only told you this exact thing all along.

    That’s not the point of this thread though.

    I’m talking about a place that already has the supporter base.
    Give them a team and watch how popular they soon become.

    Maybe if PNG are given the fair go it deserves the joint will become more user friendly. Maybe one day the f**king Indonesians will be thrown off the Island and dissidents will disappear. RL could be the catalyst for change, more than just a game

    Well there you go
    An NRL expansion section
    I did not know that.

    No wonder I couldn’t find a single thread on it.

    The West Papuan Warriors Are A Rugby League Team Trying To Stop A Genocide

    https://sports.vice.com/en_au/artic...a-rugby-league-team-trying-to-stop-a-genocide

    As wondrful as this is, threats of death for just playing hardly seem like a huge incentive to turn up.

    (It would be cool to see a team like this allowed into the WC though)

    They probably love to have a premiership winning team up there.
    I know how good it feels.

    PNG and now Fiji are actually perfect just where they are. The second teir comps in Australia are very strong and in the coming decade could be professional comps in their own right. It gives them regular high level match-play and is a shop window for NRL teams.

    These two nations now have the perfect setup moving forward. Domestic amateur comps. A fully professional team for their best local players in the Australian second teir and then the best of those players will get picked up by NRL clubs. Give it 10 or 15 years and they will both have a nice pool of professionals in the NRL and a production line of talent coming behind them.

    What is really wonderful is they are still playing under the threat of death. If it wasn't for Australia the f**king scumbag merkin Indonesian cowards would still be committing genocide in East Timor

    If the Fuzzy Wuzzies had to again risk death for the sake of humanity by merely wanting to play a sport the world should take notice

    Calling them anything else is a barometer of your ignorance and intelligence.

    Indonesia did it's best to destabilize East Timor and you can bet your balls they're behind anything bad in PNG. Australia can help overcome the scumbags with RL and a little muscle ala East Timor

    The corrupt so and so's running PNG ( officially and unofficially) don't need any help from the Indonesians to continue to completely f**k over the country....

    East Timor was ruled by Jakarta for 25 years whilst PNG has been independent for longer than that so that comparison is pointless

    There are social problems there that will take decades to overcome even if Australia exponentially increased their assistance ( which wont happen either...)
