    In all likelihood no, the NRL will want another team to go in with them (even numbered comp) imo the Qld teams (CQld and Ipswich) aren't ready. No stadium unlike the other two bids amongst other things

    Why would anyone bother after the way they got crapped on last time around?
    CQ and Brisbane/Ipswich for mine but I guess the WA timeslot fits Foxtel perfectly.

    Good idea. We have a bit of a water shortage issue at present so if you could all please bring your own beers, that would be very much appreciated  ;D
    blitzkrieg, you might have a bit of a problem getting through the border. We have a no dickhead policy over here  ;)

    Lol. But seriously the Reds back in Western Australia would be a good thing for all of NRL. I too havn;t been out there, I would like to join the MWTS if they go over to WA.

    Ipswich would play out of Suncorp, so the NRL could have a second game every two weeks.

    I would bet on a QLD side and the Reds, with in the near future one of the western Syd sides being killed off and the sharks relocated to Adelaide. People in the clubs industry have suggested to me that Wests (The licenced club, rather then the NRL club.) are very close to being closed and this would be a huge blow to the tigers.

    Rockhampton has a fair chance.  Premier Anna Bligh has commited in writing that Rocky will get a state of the art, world class stadium based on the Titans model.  QR National has commited to being the principal sponsor of the club.  The bid has almost 25 000 members already signed and is creeping up slowly.

    Reds bring in another added bonus of a different time zone.
    If an Ipswich team did play out of Suncorp it wouldn't really be an Ipswich team now would it?
    I think the Logan area should get there own bid and make a South Brisbane team

    They need to get the Opposition to commit to the same thing (stadium).
    In terms of the members none are financial.
