Vivia Las Vegas.

How did the outcome of this year's games go?

Are viewership's up for Rugby League in the USA?

Or is it just one big nosh up for the Elitest cronies?

nobody watched it in states, only one female player came out of the camp, hardly any local people went.
But the journos and bosses had a great time so well worth the investment.

Wasnt the game on FOX in the States at 15 minutes into the first half.

V'Landys has to get a better deal than that.

Else it's just a "jobs for the boys" trip to Vegas paid by the gambling money.

Still thats how Frank Sinatra operated for the back end of his career as well.

There is no end game for Vegas. If you measure if by results in the US, it will be a failure. It is simply a brilliant promotional tool for the NRL season in Aus/NZ. General interest and crowds would not be up as much this season without all of the goodwill and publicity generated by the Vegas opening.

Really, I think you have your cause and effect wrong.

Because the start of the season has gone so well for the NRL, they have been able to cash in by sending all their cronies to Vegas.

100% the amount of publicity Australia wide was insane, that alone was worth the trip!
