...and only one Aussie!  These "statistical teams are often way of the mark IMO.  For example, how did Tonga's Foster have better stats then Joseph Paulo in last nights game.  Foster was largely anonymous aginst Scotland whilst Paulo pulled all the strings for USA.


"Rugby League is rugby in the simplest form in the sense that it's about great defence, great tackling technique, good handling, good passing, catching and great kicking."
