They will probably go ok, they will treat it like an international or something. Depends on the quality of the squads each team bothers sending because if star players get a season ending injury there are gonna be some pissed off coaches. If the prize money is enough I’m sure the clubs that could use some extra dosh and take it seriously though.
The NRL prize money is minimal, so can't imagine a pre-season tournament will be much at all
reportedly the Panthers received just 200k for winning this year's NRL title; plus another 100k for the minor premiership. in comparison the AFL premiers took home $1 million in prize money
although the Panthers boss complained about it in the media , which ensured a reaction from the NRL. Abdo claiming next years will be significantly higher. 800k for the Premiership and 200k for the minor premiership
