Calls for NRL to expand

Calls for NRL to expand
March 24, 2008
Sport /

Melbourne Storm Chief Executive Brian Waldron has called for the National Rugby League (NRL) to put expansion on its immediate agenda.

Waldron called for the reintroduction of new teams in Perth, and possibly Adelaide, and said the NRL should follow the AFL's strategy of targeting new markets.

Waldron believes the NRL should "get the cart before the horse" and grow the game nationally in order to boost TV rights fees, stating "the answer to our long-term growth of the game, financially, is expansion or, dare I say it, relocation," adding, "if we were truly a national competition we would generate enormous amounts of money for the game."
