The addition of the Dolphins as the 17th team will almost certainly spark more expansion talks, with the NRL said to be open to the prospect of adding further franchises to its competition in the future.

The Redcliffe-based Dolphins pipped the Jets and Firehawks for the 17th licence, with the Dolphins becoming the first team added to the league since the Gold Coast Titans were introduced in 2007.

It is unlikely there will be further additions before the next broadcast deal expires at the end of 2028 but the NRL is said to be keen on adding an 18th team in the coming years.
