Total waste of time if a new NRL franchise in Adelaide is not being planned for the near future.
Toulouse for Championship in 2017, Super League in 2019!

Avignon for Championship in 2020, Super League in 2021!

Perth, Adelaide and PNG should all have an NRL franchise.

I agree, but Perth, Brisbane 2, and Wellington, and maybe even PNG, are way ahead of Adelaide in the pecking order.

Didn't Perth and Adelaide have SL teams previously?

Perth certainly did, I think Adelaide did, but am not certain.

Back when the NRL were split into 2 ( SL/NRL had 2 competing competitions back in 97/98 I think). Not sure how long/if they lasted when the NRL rejoined into being 1 league again.

No. I'm at work and an Australian guy I work with reckons Brisbane beat Hunter Mariners in the final ( and as he's a Brisbane fan, I guess he would know).

To be honest, the only thing I vaguely remember about the competition, was that because of the format it went on for ages. And that the British sides were rubbish.

There was a club in Adelaide, and in another in Perth, when Rupert Murdoch set up a Super League competition as rival to the ARL. The SL club was called the Adelaide Rams. It did OK IIRC.

Adelaide Rams and Perth Reds were both disbanded when the Super League-ARL war ended and the new single NRL was formed without Adelaide or Perth. That was a dumb move.

I was at a Broncos game at the end of last year and they replayed the London v Canberra game which London won at the Stoop, 20 years to the day I believe. Meninga was coach of the green ,machine, they had Ricky Stewart, Laurie Daly in the halves plus many more stars. I was surprised at just how fast the game was played.
