Todd Greenberg's message to Queensland rugby league fans

  Todd Greenberg's message to Queensland rugby league fans “We won’t forget Queensland fans, I can assure you of that.” The SCG’s usefulness as a rugby league venue isn’t in dispute – everyone agrees it’s average. But it’s serving its purpose.“Part of me agrees with that [the SCG as a less than ideal rugby league venue], but it’s short-term decision-making now to secure our long-term future,” Greenberg said.“What that means is we’ll have some short-term pain to get through in the next few years but the ultimate prize is $2 billion of infrastructure development and three brand-new rectangular stadiums in Sydney.

Rugby league is a constantly evolving and expanding game - and now the world's most famous city, New York, is setting their sights on the Super League by the 2023 season.

A team from the 'Big Apple' are set to join England's third division competition (League 1) in 2021 - meaning they could realistically be in the top flight by 2023.

According to senior journalist Dean 'Bulldog' Ritchie on Tuesday morning's Big Sports Breakfast, the reality is starting to set in.

“They’ve got all their ducks in a row at the moment - money, home ground, sponsors – and I think by Christmas the RFL will formally approve New York for 2021," he said.

Kellaway joins Rebels for 2020 Super Rugby

  Kellaway joins Rebels for 2020 Super Rugby Promising outside back Andrew Kellaway, who started his career with NSW, has confirmed he will join the Melbourne Rebels for the 2020 Super Rugby season. The 24-year-old will arrive for pre-season training in November after a recent spell with the Northampton Saints (England) and Counties Manukau (New Zealand) looking to add to his 25 Super Rugby caps. "Wanting to be back in Australia and trying to get my name on the national radar was a huge driver behind coming home," Kellaway said.

"This gives them a year. There is no definitive answer, but considering what they did with Toronto and Toulouse it would be into League 1.

"The budget compared to other sides in that division would be big, so you’d think they would go through that fairly well, go into the championship and within three years they could be in the Super League.

"This is not a pie in the sky anymore – this is real, it is happening and is going to change the face of rugby league."

The success of the Toronto Wolfpack has been sensational - and in 2020 they will join the Super League and become a force to be reckoned with.

Ritchie also explained that while the New York franchise won't be going after a Cameron Munster or Kalyn Ponga-level player just yet, they do have cash to splash.

“What they said to me yesterday was that if they are in League 1, they aren’t going to offer $1 million to a marquee player because the division is too low," he said.

"An elite player would get bored – but when they go higher and higher, perhaps into the Super League – they are claiming they would have $1 million a year to spend on a marquee player and a face of the franchise to attract crowds.

"They will look at players towards the end of their careers. Some names in the paper today included the Morris brothers, Darius Boyd, Kieran Foran, Benji Marshall – people in that ilk.

"It has been ridiculous the amount of enquiries we have had from players and officials to go to New York."
