I don't think that's necessary, two games is enough. I wouldn't be taking it away from Brisbane anytime soon.
I agree but was only thinking the other day it would be cool to take it to different cities around the world.
I think it would sell out in the UK or France. Canada could be cool but best of all could you imagine to atmosphere if it were held in PNG.

I really don't see the point in going to places like France or Canada. What would it achieve?

PNG would be awesome in theory but the infrastructure just isn't there.

Leave it in Brisbane, maybe give NZ a go at some stage.

Of the western world after the US, NZ and UK, France and Canada would have the next biggest followings.

If we want to grow the game there it would do better then taking internationals there imo.

Like I said don't want to move it away from Brisbane, but wouldn't it be a cool thing to see one day. Our little game taking a whole round of games to these kinds of countries. Imagine never seeing a rugby league game and you get to watch a whole round of the best competition in the world play it in your country. I think we would get plenty of new fans from it. Just a pipe dream.

I don’t know if there’d be enough interest anywhere to warrant a full round, especially at the expense of a sellout round in Aus.

Would Aus sell out a full weekend of Ice Hockey or Kabaddi or something?

Maybe after a good few years of building interest in US, and in which case it would be pretty incredible.

A double header seems perfect for now though, and foreseeable future.

I love the fact that we’re taking real matches over to Vegas.

Not a trial, not an international, not a 4th Origin.

I would like to also see a couple of matches in England as part of “Round 0”

NZ is a good shout. They love a festival of sport

Not to mention the Broncos last 10 rounds go:

18 - QLD (Suncorp)
19 - QLD (Suncorp)
20 - NSW (Newcastle)
21 - QLD (Suncorp)
22 - QLD (Gold Coast)
23 - QLD (Townsville)
24 - Bye
25 - QLD (Suncorp)
26 - QLD (Suncorp)
27 - QLD (Suncorp)
That's some accomplishment considering there are only 4 teams from QLD.
