Tomorrow the NRL will meet to decide to whether or not to expand the NRL from 15 teams to 16 teams, and should they do so, which one out of Wellington, Central Coast, or the the Gold Coast will get it.
Which one will it be?
Personally I think and hope it is the Gold Coast, I'm not just saying this because I live here and therefore give them my support, but having seen the support from the council, the people, sponsorship, a team name and jerseys (which are on sale) and a head coach appointed, and the only thing needed is an upgrade to Carrara Stadium.
And besides from a Melbourne Storm fan if the Central Coast get it, Matt Orford is all but a certainty to join them which will be bad news for the Storm considering how vital he is for them, but as usual they will probably pluck some guy from obsurity and turn him into a really good player.
Hey they did it with Matt Geyer, Steve Bell, Billy Slater, Scott Hill, Matt King, Cameron Smith etc.
You would have to think Wellington doesn't have much chance of getting in.
