If it goes ahead, can't imagine anything more cringe-worthy. Vegas will market this to locals and tourists to come see these circus freaks from that nutty little country of Oz, like some 90s reality Gladiators show piece. They'll probably have that WWF announcer beforehand. When will they understand, Americans don't give a f**k about rugby league, Penn's either full of sh*t, or just a f***ing idiot (most likely both)
Talk about selling out. It reeks of desperation, and again, the NRL made to look insecure as it attempts to seek external validation.
As legislation here is clamping down on the relationship between the NRL and betting agencies, this is a wildly regressive move. The game ought to be able to grow locally and organically, or it doesn't deserve to do so imo.
What a f**k up to their early season it will be to the 4 clubs who end up going, and we all know Penn has Manly already locked in as one of them
