Clubs fear NRL can’t afford to expand

The Australian reports that club bosses are concerned that the NRL wont be able to afford expansion if it continues to prop up clubs – there are at least four presently receiving assistance from the league at the moment.

“We need all the current clubs to be sustainable and the only way you’d look at expansion is if you made the pie bigger — not divide the same pie up between more teams,’’ one club boss told The Australian yesterday.

“Unless it’s really profitable for the game you wouldn’t do it.’’
