Last week’s match against Wigan summed up all that’s wrong with Super League for me. The contest between these two sides was thrill a minute compared to the drab affairs we normally put up with. In many ways Super League is just like British society where the good times are few and far between for anyone’s liking. But year after year we carry on ignoring our Norman Tebbit-esque thoughts to move on to pastures new like the mugs that we are. Rugby League isn’t thriving here so we should all get on our bikes and immigrate to Papua New Guinea.
Paul Caddick and Gary Hetherington should sell the rugby ground off and move the whole club to Port Moresby where we shall now be known as Port Moresby Rhinos. I’m sure they can whip up a stadium in time for the 2013 NRL season. We can now look forward to a much bigger salary cap than what we had in super league and buy players that wouldn’t come over to England at the height of their careers because of poor pay. Better still we’ll have more quality opposistion week in week out when the Rhinos franchise bid to the NRL goes through.
To get traditional Rhinos fans on board they should be a proposal to resurrect Quarry Hill Flats somewhere in the capital of Papua New Guinea. The good people of Leeds haven’t quite been the same since the pride and joy of this city was replaced by a theatre. Despite them flats not been up to much, we were much happier in them days and we’ll be happier still if this does get the go ahead. I’m already down for the one which Queenies Castle was filmed in.
However the biggest attraction will be that Papua New Guinea will benefit from so much wealth creation because rugby league is the number sport in that country. We can even start our very own Southstander.com Cake stall where cakes are made in the shape of rugby balls. Everyone likes a bit of cake so we should be able to transform Port Moresby from one of the least liveable cities in the world to the most desirable from sales alone.
Away we go!
