CC are Roosters feeder so already connect to NRLW
Cronulla blew it because they thought their HNWP team was good enough and are not willing to spend the money required, well no that's not how it works.
Mounties may, they are linked with the Bulldogs, but the bulldogs stuffed everything up when they got rid of their HNWP last year and their coach (pre covid) pissed a lot of people off.
I think if there are no Warriors this year there will be 2 more Sydney teams and one QLD team. Based on spending and preparation I see it as Parra and Tigers in Sydney and Titans in QLD.
What is interesting is I head 3 sydney teams have been promised entry this year but I would be very surprised
Yeah I forgot to add that CC had the Easts partnership. Wasn't aware of what Bulldogs did either.
Tigers are definitely heavily investing in it for sure.
Regardless of who goes in, expansion to the clubs and duration of the comp will make it grow in appeal for sure
