I hope this encourages them to talk to each other and come to a solution.. so much potential... yet so much rubbish going on.
But the USA remains a big issue for the RLIF. While they did extremely well in making it to the quarterfinals, the game is a basketcase in the States, with two rival organisations, the AMNRL and USARL, battling for power.
While Carter sees the potential for huge growth in the game in the States, funding won't come their way until there's just the one national body.
"The USA is not even yet a fully fledged member," Carter said. "They are working on internal structural issues and we certainly want to encourage that.
"The RLIF recognises just one governance body within each nation and there are very clear membership criteria for each country.
"The first opportunity for the USA is to meet that, especially given that they have overachieved at this tournament and we're very keen to see them progress.
"We are also keen to see South Africa once again become a full member and participate in the World Cup.
"There are some people with some very good intentions, but having two groups is not healthy, you really need a single national governance structure and you need pathways for players and officials and that's what we want to see happen.
"We took a conscious decision that because they'd qualified for the World Cup, even with that duplicate structure, we'd allow them to participate and then from this point on give them more help to get that single national identity."
