    I remember when I was at school James Cook was a great necessary for St George, I doubt it is now.

    Yes, don't forget that the Illawarra region feeds into them also

    I've never understood how an RL fan can give up the game and watch fumbleball. I lost my team (Logan Scorpions) but still live and breathe RL. For years I tried to get the QRL, Logan City Council and Queensland Government to bring the Scorpions back, to no avail. That's how much I love the Scorpions and miss them. I still watch RL and adopted Wynnum Manly as my team. It hurts not having the Scorpions around, but I enjoy watching the Seagulls and have developed a strong passion for the club.

    I understand your point of view but Rugby league to many of us is a tribal thing, take that away and all you’ve got is just a game that is soulless..

    Logan missing from the QRL is a disgrace. You won't find a stronger RL heartland. And I'm talking about real Logan representation not Souths-Logan playing out of West End and just using Logan for the player base.

    Yeah I couldn’t bring myself to fumble ball.

    But I would give soccer and Union a red hot go to spite league. Is also drop all my spend to 0. No more membership, games, merch and paying for Kayo...unless it’s to primarily watch another sport.

    You are so right. One of the reasons I hate the Broncos is because of the way they treated the Scorpions back in 1988. They could have given the club a hand, when they were in trouble back in 2002, but instead they sat back and let it die from 15 years of having to pay an exorbitant lease for Meakin Park that was more than the combined total of every other sports club in Logan. When the Logan Mayor from 2002, John Freeman, entered the mayoral race last year I almost exploded with rage.

    QRL is planning on putting a Logan QRL club at Heritage Park.

    Souths (South), Easts (East), Manly (North), Parra (Inner west and north west), Penrith (far west), Dogs (South West), Dragons (outer South). Those clubs more than do service to all of Sydney.

    Tigers and Sharks are redundant.

    What's at Meakin Park now? Baseball? I wonder how much their lease is for the same ground...

    Interesting about the Heritage Park development, will that be a Logan club entered into the State League? If so, what will happen with Souths Logan? Will they revert to being South Brisbane?

    Brisbane Strikers were given the rights to use Meakin Park in 2003/04. Soccer Queensland now have their HQ at the ground.

    I have no idea about the new team. I hope it isn't Magpies as they've never done anything for this city other than take our players because southern Brisbane doesn't have any one decent.

    I'd keep the Tigers in Sydney as the Western Sydney Tigers, in black, gold and white hoop design, similar to South Sydney Rabbitohs' myrtle and cardinal. Canterbury Bulldogs to Christchurch so Tigers can absorb the area. North Sydney Sea Eagles, red and black hoop design jersey. Sydney Dragons, red, white and blue hoops design.

    Why did the sharks need saving?

    Don't they own all the land around their stadium and had a development going???

    Guess the developer wants to cash in or has gone bankrupt

    Growing up, some of us only had one NSWRL and one BRL game on the weekend on TV. So watched something else that used an oblong ball - whether 4 Nations Rugby or VFL.

    In fact I remember when we used to have to stay up to 10:30pm on a Tuesday night to see the highlights of the NSWRL Match of the Day.

    it was more than just financial viability, it was also the stench they were creating. Despite selling off the family jewels they are still losing money hand over fist, only difference is they are now burning their cash they got from the sale to stay viable rather than borrowing to cover their losses. Maybe the redeveloped LC and the new golf course pokies will keep them afloat in the future, maybe not.

    It was a lot better than what happened to the other sydney clubs.

    I copied and pasted the Our Logan article about Robert Moore meeting up with LCC to acquire land for a QLD Cup club here.
