The whole World Cup tournament is a joke to me!
The best Australians playing in the NRL play for Australia, everyone else
just rates the other nations in their perceived order of ability and tries to play for
the highest rated team that will give them a game, nationality has nothing to do with it.
I might be wrong here Tim but I think it's not quite that simple. I believe there has to be some sort of link between the player and the nation he ends up playing for.
