Brisbane Tigers look to combine with PNG for NRL Bid
The Brisbane Tigers have high hopes of combining with PNG in a bid to become the 18th NRL team.
Shane Edwards, Chairman of the Brisbane Tigers NRL Bid told Peter Psaltis on Wide World of Sports, “…We’re very confident in our proposal in a stand alone basis to be the 18th team…but recently we’ve been in discussions with PNG about a merged entity which could be a very formidable team from day one…”
“We see the creation of a merged team as a way to allow them time to develop their pathways but in time…when new teams come into the competition we’d both be a team in our own right…” Mr. Edwards continued.
