Next years World Club Challenge will be played in Australia.
Really like the sound of the 6 team comp from 2015. That would be a great tour
Great news that we can all go watch Manly in this next year in Sydney
Perfect for Brookie.
Imagine if Beavers team won and we won
Imagine if Luke Dorns team won and we won. lol
I need to go to Europe before all the relos die and I was going to combine it with Manly's WCC Tour 2014
Did you guys hear that there will be a RL 9's in NZ next year and that all 16 Clubs are invited?
Foxsports had it on a few days back, but now nothing.
beaver would come down with a mysterious injury as he said he'd never play against manly!
Clubs are yet to vote the 9's in (and what's going around due to the prize money it's all but certain $500k is more than the actual premiership)
So eventually the preseason will look like this -
Cricket has 5 dayers, 50 overs and 20/20.
A taste of the future for NRL?
So....will we be supporting the storm, or the pommy team?
Go the Poms !
20/20 is not cricket.
Let's pray that the NRL dont go down the same path as cricket..After the SAFs left no one gave a toss about the rest of the summer..
oooh, you should've said "It's just not cricket!"
Scrub all other games, even trials and let's play TWO full rounds.
go The poms
Can I just say this (after talking at length with the Rhino's CEO last February)
The WCC costs a bucket load to stage...team travel / accommodation / expenses alone run into the $400K plus, and almost $500K.
The WCC runs almost purely on pay TV "buy in" throughout the UK.
He doubted that this would happen in Australia and so it would have to be say Chan 9 buying the rights.
For that alone he thought it would never come to Australia (although he'd like to see it reversed each year).
So.....I'll be surprised if this happens!!
I think a lot of NRL clubs are worried about what happened in 1994 when Wigan played Brisbane.
It was Wigan's off season and they came down and beat a very strong Brisbane team in the middle of there season.
Now imagine the embrassment of losing to an ESL team in our weather what will be the excuses be?
Looks like everyone is supporting mother engerlund
