I think that G Hetherington suggested it.
We only need 8 teams, have Europe in as it's Super League Europe.
If you have an Australia v Europe 3 Match Test Series, it obviously leaves out NZ, which is not a good thing. Why can't we organise another WC here in Europe for Oct. & November 2015 over the next few weeks. Yes, next year. Surely it's not hard to book Toulouse, Memorial Ground (Bristol), Leigh, Headingley, KC Stadium, Wembley, Old Trafford, Langtree Park, Rochdale, Craven Park, DW Stadium and the Halliwell Jones Stadium for 1 or 2 matches each, and speak to local officials over the next few weeks is it?. There are 12 stadia there, to cover 15 matches, Wembley will hold both semi-finals, no quarter-finals. Toulouse to hold the opening ceremony and obviously the opening match between Europe and Australia on October 17. The semi-finals on Nov. 7th at Wembley. Old Trafford for the Final on November 14th.
Group A - Europe, Australia, Samoa, Tonga
Group B - NZ, PNG, Fiji, Cook Islands
Obviously the 2017 WC will be in Aus. & NZ.
