SorryIf we're going to stick with nine teams in Sydney then their salary cap should be 30% lower than the Knights, Raiders, Warriors, Storm, Cowboys, Titans, Broncos, Dolphins, Pirates, Firehawks and NZ2. The competition is rigged to give the Sydney clubs easier access to players on the market, by virtue of not having to fly on a plane evry week. The only way to make things fairer for the non-Sydney clubs is to give them more money to spend so that the Rorters can no longer buy premierships.
Salary Cap should always remain the same for all clubs. And in fact should include a requirement to field a RG and NRLW team.
Cheaper rates of living and availability of 3rd Party arrangements offset any Sydney v Regional cost arguments
But what you can have is a "travel allowance" based on the number of greater than 2h by bus travels
You already have a relocation allowance in place
