Well that was a bit embarrassing for them, after a big look at us in Vegas, we got nothing! Like I’ve said countless times re perth bid, better to be working hard in the background than make it all about media and column inches.

“The Warriors have been magnificent for the game but you have another New Zealand team on the South Island, Christchurch for example, and I think they can take over rugby in New Zealand and we become entrenched in that country. I think it’s a must.”
As a Cantab do you really believe league can take over rugby in NZ?

Ahh so it's about me? Lol I thought we're here to talk League.
Want me to select some traffic lights for you bro? Lol
It's all about you if you make a comment and then back it up with nothing. At least your mate Wb provides us with random Tik Tok links, mostly irrelevant and he does get 99% of what he posts about NZ wrong, but given you're a Cantab you shouldn't have those failings.

Maybe not traffic lights, but a roadmap maybe. I'll give you some pointers, how are we going to increase the playing numbers of around 25k total, how are we going to convert the fans of say the Crusaders to switch completely to the new league team being floated down there, how are we going to convince Sky viewers to watch the NRL in higher numbers than Super or even the NPC?

I remember when the trolls had good arguments

lmao
You trolls have never had a good argument, and your new buddy @final say doesn't have any either (in fact he just appears to be repeating yours and your mate Gobs same old B/S).

I do chuckle as you attempt to imply others are trolls on this thread, you get so much wrong I'm assuming you're actually allergic to facts.

You can be a fan of multiple sports you know?, converting is not an issue, when its a different sport, if you were talking about the crusaders having a new Super Rugby side sharing that stadium then yeah converting is the word to use, but with another RL side in NZ any athlete who cant make those SR sides or the Warriors has another avenue to go to

Not sure you're actually following the discussion? Incidentally I've pointed out many times that the majority of league fans in NZ are also rugby fans. The comment I was responding to was the repeated, backed by nothing, claim by the thread trolls that league will take over rugby in NZ.

On the subject of an extra side in NZ I'm not sure if that would make much of a difference to players missing out on SR sides - they have the entirety of the NRL clubs if that was the case. Yet the most recent converts with a profile came from 3rd Division (Te Whare), local city club rugby (Leo Thompson) or Sevens (Warbrick, but he was always a leaguie)

You do know this is a League forum right? If you prefer League and favour it's ability to expand... you're a troll??
Cool story bro.

Spends all his time on a league forum telling people why rugby union is the best and league has no chance

There’s a very very very very long way to go for rl to catch union in NZ let alone overtake it.
Their revenue, fans, players, tv audience all dwarf us.
