State of Origin Captain

Finally! Someone who knows what they are talking about!Oh no, quite the opposite. I think the NRL was quietly livid that there was so little they could do to force Cronulla's hand because unlike anyone else, they owned their own ground and all the prime real estate around it.
They had a monumental liquidity problem. At one point they literally had eight Admin staff including the GM and all of them were getting paid about $50k each. I can't explain how I know that much detail, but trust me, I know it.
When that development deal came through it screwed the NRL because I have no doubt they'd have loved them to go balls up so they could move the club elsewhere or hand out a new licence to someone else.
Now they're cashed up, I can't see them going anywhere, which must burn the powers at the NRL.
