"the NRL's new strategic plan outlining the pathway for aspiring franchises from Brisbane, Perth, PNG, New Zealand and Fiji to join the Telstra Premiership." Interested in hearing people's views. One of the criteria is that you must be able to produce your own players rather than just importing all of them. Towards this end a second NZ franchise may struggle, and a PNG franchise may succeed? I am just guessing though Anyway what are people's views on a wet wednesday evening.
