Just have one/some (e.g. Roosters/Manly split) of the existing NRL clubs cover the North Shore!But you already have 9 Sydney clubs. Move one of them to North Sydney. It’s the lead story on FSN just now, the amount of press it has got in just one day supercedes that of a Perth or NZ franchise or any other option which is very concerning
If, like Santino said, there were 2 NRL teams exiting the Sydney market at the same time, it wouldn’t be the worst idea. North Sydney is a huge, important market and deserves more thought and attention from the NRL. This is a dumb bid though, NSO is a terrible NRL ground, it will never be a rectangular ground and the viewing angles are terrible. The other elements of the bid, such as games in regional centres, can easily be covered by existing NRL clubs, it honestly offers nothing good or useful to the game.
