    Not sure about Parra mate, I see more Knights/Roosters/Broncs/Storm/Cows gear then Parra I reckon.

    I thought the Dragons had fans everywhere?
    Would they take them playing Rabbits away from Sydney?

    Depends where you go I guess. In the CBD I see mainly Rabbits/Warriors/Eels and then Manly.

    Roosters I hardly see - Knights there's been heaps lately. I think they'd be a good clash against the Dogs.

    I'd love to work for a WA League team at one stage.

    Dragons played Eels in a trial here 6 or 7 years ago and it pulled 10,000!  

    There was this dick in front of us who yelled out "Felatio" everytime Feleti Mateo got the ball.  It was funny the first 8 or 9 times...

    So yeah, in light of that, Parra might go allright Honeysett.  

    Would hate for the Warriors to try to knock it back based on their record.

    You would think they can get a crowd for the double header no matter the opposition so they will have opponents who won't draw well in Sydney like the Titans, Storm or Cowboys (or Roosters). I doubt it'll be Sogs v Eels as that is a game they should get 20k to when they play in Sydney.

    I might be a bit one eyed here but they should choose the 2 potentially largest crowd pullers for the best chance at being able to say they hit 40,000.

    This is right. You need to draw the biggest crowds to create future interest. But you also want quality games for the crowds to look at.

    Yep, for the good of the game they need to bring some quality opposition over.

    This is their first huge move post Force being dropped, they need to make it a big impact.

    I'd love Rabbits V Roosters. I think that would draw the crowds.

    Quality teams coming over.

    Rabbits V Warriors - huge for our NZ following and honestly an absolute perfect game to be played over here. The two biggest supporter groups in WA. Will be a great clash.

    Dogs V Storm. Reigning premiers in their first game of the season again a great selection. Gives the NZ fans a chance to boo Foran as well.
