    The headline is click bait intended to make people think that SBW is coming back to Bulldogs.

    Hah!! What bollocks. There's no way they could fit SBW under their cap. Barett, Mo'unga and Caleb Clarke will be taking up the lion's share.

    The staggering cost paid by the NRL to keep the Storm running in 2020
    NRL PREMIERSHIP


    October 26, 2020 10:34am
    by ANDREW JACKSON
    Source: FOX SPORTS

    Craig Bellamy branded it the greatest win of his illustrious coaching career and now the cost of keeping the Melbourne Storm in this year’s competition has been revealed.
    The Sydney Morning Herald reports the governing body had to spend $4 million to ensure the Storm could continue to compete in the 2020 season.

    That included relocating both the players and their families to the Sunshine Coast, including children who would go on to attend schools in the area.

    I guess that better than the $30-$40 million it costs the AFL to keep each of GWS and the Gold Coast running.

    I get the point, but that's more relevant to the hundred-odd million the Storm have lost over the past couple of decades. Money well spent by AFL in my view. They are getting an ROI in player development. Not so the Storm.

    The cost of keeping the Storm on the Gold Coast (and the Kiwis in Gosford) might even be less than the cost of multiple "hubs" the AFL has had to absorb this year. Why anyone would think that's newsworthy is a bit unclear to me though. It's not like they had any real choice. The ARU are extremely lucky that AF saw merit in giving them a leg-up too.

    I often wonder, in an alternate reality, where the Western Reds would have been by now if...

    Considering best of the side ended up at the Storm I have always thought that the Reds would have risen to the top, we may have even ended up with Bellamy as coach.
