The ambition of the new South Wales club to play in next year's Super League has been approved in principle by the League's board of directors, writes Dave Hadfield.

The board, however, has insisted the consortium, which wants to base the club at Cardiff Arms Park, must guarantee to match any money from News Corporation, to which they will become entitled as Super League members.

Leading clubs will be without key players from Western Samoa, Tonga and Fiji for part of next month because of the first playing of the Oceania Cup.

The London Broncos have targeted the Bath rugby union players Steve Ojomoh and Simon Geoghegan as possible future signings.
