Added further to this scenario is the rugby league can easily win back the lost fans and consolidate the northern Sydney region with a relatively easy to do Central Coast Bears! Add another Brisbane club and there is an 18 team comp with infrastructure and juniors pathways at the ready. Then more ambitious expansion with West Coast Pirates and perhaps NZ Wellington Orcas or Adelaide Dingoes. A twenty team comp with perhaps conferences involved? At least this scenario involves no whiteanting and pain for existing fans and welcomes new fans to the competition. That's genuine growth!
