And add to that the Hurricanes - how many people would rather punt their "watch sports game/attend sports game" in the Hurricanes direction, given how well they've been going recently?Yes they could do it but logistically would it be worth their while. Things to consider are -
Where would they play?
Would a team in Wgtn appeal to investors & sponsors?
Is there sufficient support in Wgtn for rugby league to consistently bring the crowd?
Granted players would still come from throughout NZ but is their grass roots stronger than Auckland & how would the imported players feel about living there.?
I don't think the NRl would bother - we are not that important to warrant such considerations
It's just lucky for the Warriors to be based here in Auckland with a mis-firing Blues team. Imagine how many fence-sitters would go to Eden Park if they started firing? I know the Warriors haven't really started firing either, but bear in mind the pricing reductions bought in this year. That would have helped slow the rot.
It's Auckland, Auckland or Auckland methinks as far as the NRL is concerned.
