We are talking about australia developing png juniors

would it shock you to know the mighty Kumuls defeated a Wayne bennett coached Great Britain a few years ago ?

would you be shocked to know i grew up in png and actually know people who coached and played for the kumuls.

some of the best football players natural talent wise i ever played with were in png. played with several guys who trialled for nrl clubs.

the visa situation up until recently hasnt made it worth while to invest in png players.

so we have justin olam for png

dean iremea and richie kenna for melbourne

So you say they have the best talent but the nrl shouldn’t recruit them now ?

The whole argument is the nrl should be investing more money into png and not waste money on Melbourne so much because we can get way more players out of png

plus I don’t think gene played nrl

Have you been to a Storm game? If you think there is no PI or Kiwis in their fanbase then you are dreaming.

And you think there not a large community of PI or Kiwis in Melbourne, you are either trolling or an ignorant twat.
Ignorant twat.

"The salary cap will be $900,000 this season before rising to as much as $1.518 million at the end of the CBA in 2027. Minimum salaries will also rise from $30,000 in 2023 to $50,600 by the end of the cycle."

I would expect this level of editing / review from News Ltd.

So vlandys is good yeh ?
Nah still a loudmouth dckhead using nrl to further his nsw racing position. might look good now but that already large $600mill nrl revenue to $900mill Afl revenue gap is going To grow massively over next 5 years due to Vlandys screwing the game to help out his mates at news ltd.

Not all the while they spend 10's of millions every year propping up the Thuns and the Midgets, and that has grown in 100's of millions

We are close to the point where the NRl gives its clubs the same amount as AFl gives its clubs, just we have much less revenue to take it from.
