Just watched the NRL Video News on the NRL.com website, in it there is a brief mention of a Gallop interview where he says that there will likely be expansion of the NRL by 2013. Note the news piece does not quote Gallop, mearly suggesting what he may have said. The news cast goes on to mention Gallops view that the the Central Coast are a lock with a number of other options as well. It is suggested that the NRL would expand by 2 teams not one, with Perth having the inside running to be the other team included. Thoughts? I think that it may be all be postioning before the TV rights negotiations intended to make the deal look more attractive to 7 and 10. Still surely the NRL must include a CC team soon and if they do it makes sence to add 2 at the same time, I mean 17 teams is a stupid number. Also did anyone hear Gallops interview first hand?
