The Redcliffe Dolphins are set to be unveiled as the expansion club the NRL will introduce in 2023, the Sydney Morning Herald's Michael Chammas reports.

Chammas is confident the Dolphins are set to beat the Brisbane Jets and Brisbane Firehawks for the 17th NRL lisence, after a deal struck with News Corp ensured an extra $75-$100 million would be injected into the game over five years. That's on top of the $1 billion deal already agreed with News Corp for the 2023-2027 broadcast rights.

As Chammas broke down the situation on 2GB's Wide World of Sports radio, he said he would be staggered if the Dolphins weren't revealed as the expansion club.
