Episode 11 - Return to Glory
Young Padwan Nathan Merritt is tasked with saving the new Jeditoh order but he needs the help of an old rival. As the evil NRL emperor closes in, the Jeditohs must survive by the combination of old and new. Grand Rooster (Kerry Packer) and Chief Jeditoh (George Piggins) meet to discuss their prospects.
In this episode of the NRL Irrational Mergers mini series I am joined by Matt from the NRL Boom Rookies podcast. The year is 1998, the newly formed NRL set out to reduce clubs to reach the magic number of 14 by 2000. The criteria is set and the 12 Sydney and Illawarra clubs are offered $8M and other exemptions to make mergers happen. We examine the possible choices for merger partners for the Rabbitohs.
