Keep dreaming my delusional friend. In a decade the landscape will have changed dramatically.What is it with you Australians and you fantasies??? When PNG get the next licence, there are already two bids, with massive local of national government funding... No NZ bid will get that.
Aussie TV will see value in Aussie teams... Sky will be paying much less than they pay now and wont fund an NZ team.
And with NZRs income projected to hit 300 million a year, they will have no issue retaining the players they want.
Keep dreaming, its all you have.
Every 17 yr old wants to be an All Black until an NRL club comes along and offers him 5 x the money.
The NRL only wants the top talent, the all blacks can have the left overs.
