    THE first steps toward creating a Pacific Island Super Rugby team could be taken via the NRC, with confirmation expected on Friday that Fiji will enter the domestic Australian tournament.

    The nine-team competition will kick off on September 2, and Fiji is set to play its first match at Ballymore against Brisbane City.
    Itís believed Fiji will host their first NRC game in round three in Sigatoka, against NSW Country Eagles.

    And more importantly for us considering some of the rumours that have been floating around...

    Defending champions Perth Spirit will be confirmed starters for this yearís NRC, despite the prospect of the ARU axing the Western Force from Super Rugby in August.

    The nine teams in this yearís NRC will be: Fiji, Sydney Rays, Greater Sydney Rams, NSW Country Eagles, Canberra Vikings, Brisbane City, Queensland Country, Perth Spirit and Melbourne Rising.

    I dunno, that one day turnaround between games in Suva and Perth looks pretty tough...

    Hang on. We played Melbourne and Brisbane at home last year, and Canberra and the Eagles away, too.

    I recall every game we played away last year was in Sydney or Canberra, except the final which was Tamworth (still NSW!) At least we're travelling a bit more.
