Greater Western Sydney (of which Canberra is apparently a part, go figure) is a furnace into which the AFL will sink millions upon millions of dollars. The NRL propping up the Storm in an important market is one thing. The AFL spending a fortune for the privilege of splitting the fanbase of their existing Sydney team in two is something else entirely. The NRL does not need a second Melbourne side.

A second team in Melbourne would be a disaster. It took the worst cheating in Australian sports history for them to get people behind the Storm.

Maybe melbourne thought they were allowed the same consessions afforded to the Brisbane Lions when trying to set up a rival code in a city.

Are you serious??? It is really quite simple. All clubs have a feeder team in NSW or QLD cup so a game between the NSW cup Premiers and the QLD cup Premiers would be ideal.

What a terrible advertisement for the competition.

NYC is better than that, the Raiders were just truly woeful.

In saying that, glad to see a different club win it & the Tigers were certainly deserving on the day.

Don't know how many of their kids will have long careers at NRL level though. Koroibete & Miller appear to be the only strong contenders.

Generally yeah, but both sides (particularly Raiders) are capable of much better.

That was honestly the worst NYC game I've seen all year & I've seen the Titans, Sea Eagles & us play!
