A tighter salary cap (or at least monitoring them closer) might give a more balanced spread of talent, but I agree, we don't have the players from the expansion areas to justify them. As a league supporter living in WA, I can say we just don't have the players to justify a team without stealing them from other states. The Reds era is long gone and the game didn't develop a profile post them becoming the storm.Let's be real. Can the nrl support more teams? The talent isn't there for 16 let alone 17, 18 or 19.
