A second Brisbane-based team is likely to be ready to enter the NRL in 2013.
The Brisbane NRL Expansion Bid has been preparing its documentation to provide to an Independent Commission, which had initially been scheduled to launch on April 1, but has since been delayed.
He said: “The strength of our bid is our Brisbane location. The financial modelling has been completed and our corporate partners and investors are all keen to get started.”
Once they get the go ahead to join the NRL, the new Brisbane team hope to confirm their brand and home ground in July 2011, before launching merchandise and a membership campaign in the autumn.
