    That's actually a solid idea. Though the logistics could end up being a pain, trying to get a team/staff to those locations and back while factoring in airline timetables/training/recovery etc.

    NRL could buy/lease a plane I guess. Would allow them to have complete control over transport and have more games at the Pacific Locations. They could paint it up in the team colours for promotional purposes, then lease it to airlines during the offseason like Alliance Airlines do.

    South Island Kea. Probably no chance of getting an expansion slot, but great to see this. https://southislandkea.com/

    David Moffett overseeing the bid, apparently.

    I wouldn’t say no chance, PVL has openly talked about wanting 20 teams and to align it with the new TV deal.

    PNG team looks like an absolute lock given the political interest from Australia & America.

    He said this on NZ recently “We certainly wouldn’t be looking at anything on the North Island but if opportunities arose on the South Island, we would look at them.”

    A PNG team would have to be based in Townsville and from there take a % of their home games to png. Nobody's going to choose to live there.

    Bring back the Reds and Crushers.
