On the back of some of our best performers in this World Cup being based in Australia, why do you think a lot of our best players (Burgess brothers, Sam Tomkins etc..) have tended to move overseas in recent years? And why do people like Josh Charnley decide against moving over there?
Also, why do you think the younger players such as Jordan Baldwinson from Leeds go overseas when they have less chance of getting game time? Is it the money? Standard of play over there? Or even a lack of depth within young and developing Australians (so teams over there have to bring players over)?
Do you think this trend of players leaving Super League will stop any time soon?
I'd be interested to hear what you all think.
