Epsiode 9: Rise of the Sironen
After years of exile in the exotic world of Concord, the last Tiger must inspire a new generation to reach the glory that he could not achieve until now. He is our last hope......"No there is another ...2" (Bayley and Curtis).
In this episode of the NRL Irrational Mergers mini series I am joined by the King of NRL podcasts The Biggest Tiger. 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 Tigers.
