FULL VOICE: A Warriors fan shows support for his team during last season's clash with Wests Tigers at Westpac stadium.

Warriors chief executive Jim Doyle this week painted a rather gloomy picture regarding the likely expansion of the NRL and the prospect of New Zealand – Wellington in particular – being granted a licence for a second side before 2022, at the earliest.

Doyle said the NRL was trying to consolidate its own financial position, and that of the 16 existing clubs, before it even considered raising that number to 18. But the folk behind a Wellington bid wanting inclusion into the competition as soon as 2017, pointed out that this week’s comments aren’t entirely consistent with the line Doyle was spinning while he was the New Zealand Rugby League‘s chief operating officer.

“We are starting to build much more momentum with growing the game over here,” Doyle told Sydney-based reporters in 2012.
