For me there are too many. There aren't enough fans to go around now. The Bulldogs should re-locate to the Central Coast, and I don't want to say it, The Sharks should become a semi-pro team in the Premier League.

sharksare actually going pretty well this season but i think the bunnies should be dropped, nth sydney re-admitted. manly booted, replace with a wellington/south island franchise and also either a perth team or another qld team admitted.

biggest problem is the game (rugby league inclusive) seems to be controlled from sydney and that is wrong.

Nay Oz howabout transferring the Rabitts to Rotovegas and the Eagles to Wellington or Christchurch.
Melbourne to Perth and Bulldogs to Adelaide.
I agree bring back North Sydney. Great Leagues club that, downed a few in the establishment over the years I can tell yah.

I'm glad no-ones picked on the Tigers in this one!

They've been through enough already with both clubs been taunted at becoming extinct causing the merger in 2000 and have proved their worth last year as an exciting crowd pulling Sydney side :)

I like Mark Geyer's idea a few months ago about having four Sydney teams - North Sydney, South Sydney, East and West. But then, those teams would probably be too strong for everybody else, when you combine all their junior pools and everything.

That would be good that would be one way to finally get the Warriors here :wink:

6 Sydney teams looks right IMO. Manly, Tigers, Dragons, Roosters, Souths and The Eels.

I don't like contrived teams. I prefer to make present teams semi-pro and keep others fully-pro.

We have the Georgetown(No one is or has been a saint, and even though I believe in spirituality, I don't believe that Jesus was as is stated in The Bible.) and Illawarra Dragons and The Tigers now so I believe we have to stick with them. In fact I think The Dragons works well as it is.

Would I be wrong in saying that Woolongong/Illawarra can't sustain a fully-pro RL team ?

And if The Tigers wasn't working out, wouldn't they have gone the same way as The Northern Eagles ?

Cronulla went quite well last year, and they're in the top 8 now, and still the crowds aren't coming in large numbers. My gut instinct tells me they aren't a sustainable entity.
