Sport: Papua New Guinea not supported in rugby league expansion

11:31 am on 25 August 2011

Papua New Guinea received just 7 per cent of votes from a poll asking readers which teams should be included in a possible new NRL expansion in 2013 or beyond.

Central Coast polled best with a decisive 46 per cent followed by Perth 23 percent, Central Queensland 10 per cent with PNG in fourth place, just ahead of the Brisbane Bombers.

Despite the poll results, the general feeling is the Brisbane Bombers and Perth remain the favourites to be added to the competition either in 2013 or later.
