Bombers not ready for NRL

Brisbane Bombers boss Craig Davison doesn't want his side to be rushed into the NRL if the Sharks fall over.

THE bid director for Brisbane's second team doesn't want his franchise to be bullied into the NRL next year if Cronulla fall over.

And Craig Davison, from the Brisbane Bombers, doesn't want the Sharks relocating to Brisbane.

"Relocation, definitely not," Davison said.

"I don't believe it is the way to go. And I am not picking on Cronulla. Sydney clubs have so much history and heritage. There is a second-tier competition. That's where Newtown play."

The NRL must have 16 clubs to fulfil its eight-game-a-week commitment to Channel 9 and Fox Sports. Southeast Queensland is almost certain to win a place if the NRL expands in three to four years.

But the chance remains that an existing club is relocated, as is commonplace in US sports, and as happened with the now hugely successful Sydney Swans in the AFL.

Perth and the Central Coast Bears have also spoken against relocation.

In fact all bid teams want to start their clubs from scratch.

Sharks chairman Damian Irvine stressed last year his club would never leave the Sutherland Shire.

I'm from Brisbane but I don't think the next NRL team should come from here.Spread the game elsewhere.I'm not saying that to protect the Broncos either.I'm not a fan of theirs anymore.

I'm biased, i think Wellington or Christchurch should get a team. The AFL is having a look see at Wellington this season so it will be interesting to see what sort of crowd they pull.

One of my best mates is from Timaru. We stayed at his family batch(??) when we went over. It was beautiful and not a bad little golf course! Wanaka was my favourite spot on the south island. Or Tekapo.

Back to the topic of this thread...... There are enough players and spectators in the Brisbane area to have a second Brisbane team. However, I agree that spreading the game may be better and believe the CQ area would be better witht he infrastructure ready to go.

I agree Gene.

I reckon CQ would be the way to go.

I travel to Tekapo frequently on business. I work for Bidvest food service as a Streets ice cream (Walls in Australia i believe) and Red Bull rep. Is your mate a Warriors supporter?

There are more and more Kiwis waking up to themselves and following league. My boss is a South African and he is starting to watch more league than union though his boy is a union player.
