    Folau and Tonga

    With the news of Folau signing with Catalans, the obvious question from an international point of view is will he perform well enough to break into the Tonga squad and if he can return to his best does he make them stronger? I'd imagine if he does make the team he plays fullback with Hopoate...

    Would you prefer dynasties in the game or talent equalisation?

    I've been listening lately to a superb podcast by The Rugby League Digest on the Super League War including the beginnings in 1994. It got me thinking about the great Raiders and Broncos teams of the 90's and even good sides like Manly and Norths were recognisable in that era by the players that...

    Fiji NSW Cup Bid & Redcliffe Dolphins NRL News Update from Petero Civoneciva

    I was on the Gold Coast yesterday and Petero was making an appearance in a Telstra shop on behalf of the NRL in his ambassador role. I had a chat to him for about 15 mins, mainly about his involvement with the Fiji NSW Cup bid and the Redcliffe Dolphins. On Fiji's NSW Cup Bid: He said that they...

    Rationalisation of Sydney

    The NRL probably isn't moving past 18 clubs, even the AFL don't find that sustainable and they have the largest revenue of any sport in the country. So with that in mind, we have two expansion spots for the following potential areas: Brisbane 2 NZ 2 Perth Adelaide I've left off areas like...

    Attn: Mods re: expansion threads

    Mods, I'm not sure how else to get this message to you but I wanted to make contact about the number of threads being shut down in the expansion area lately. Myself and a few others genuinely want to discuss expansion of the game and there are a couple of posters (my suspicion is that it is...

    International Expansion Through the Club Game

    Michael Maguire - New Kiwis Coach

    https://www.nrl.com/news/2018/05/10/michael-maguire-confirmed-as-new-zealand-kiwis-coach/ Apologies if posted elsewhere. Good move by the Kiwis. Interesting to hear him talk about playing pathways and not just the national team.

    Wet weather final - who does this benefit?

    Looks like it is going to rain quite a bit on Saturday in Brisbane including during the game. Does this benefit either team? My opinion is that it will provide a slight benefit to England and serve to close the gap between the sides. I think if England are ever going to end both the series /...

    Are the Kiwis trying to sabotage international RL?

    2013 World Cup Semi-Final at Wembly playing against the home team England, live on the BBC, huge crowd in attendance and the Kiwis break the hearts of the English in an epic match. Good on them but an English victory that day would have had such an impact in England. Fast forward four-years...

    Wold Cup Legacy

    What are everyone's thoughts on what legacy this world cup will leave? For me there are a few potentials: Annual, commercially successful Pacific Cup put in place that will provide income for the Pacific nations Regular Kiwi home tests; it has now been shown that NZ can host commercially...

    What's the best scenario for the game as a whole results wise in the world cup?

    For me it is: Quarter Finalists: England (winning pool A thanks to a very close but spiteful encounter against Australia - with the intensity of the 2013WC semi) Australia (the pool loss will ironically get the country more interested in the WC) France (Showing some resolve against Aus and...

    Who gets out of each pool and in which order?

    For me it's: Pool A: Australia England Lebanon France missing out by being upset by a talented Lebanon side - I would love England to light up the World Cup with a win over Australia first up but I think Australia will get through the pool undefeated. Pool B (Pool of Death): New Zealand...

    Which nations will field fully professional teams at this year's world cup?

    I'm trying to get a guage on how many Rugby League nations now have the ability to field fully professional squads. Obviously if we can hit a point where all nations that compete in future WC's are fully professional it is ideal. At the moment I think we have: Australia New Zealand England...
