And nz rugby league gets nothing for it!Sorry but this is just total rubbish.
The NRL cannot force any team to do anything. They tried that with Souths.
The Warriors are the cornerstone of the NRLs international broadcasting agreements - SKY pay enough to fund the grants for half the teams in the comp each year alone.
Our team is shit
Our management is shit
Our owners have a big question mark over it
But unless the club literally folds from insolvency there will always be a NZ team in the NRL.
