I put this on another forum but I think it is worthy of debate here. Vidot apparently loves playing for Samoa and is looking forward to playing in the 4N at the end of the year. However, he has said that if he got a call to play for Queensland in the dead rubber 3rd game next month he would dump Samoa.
This quote was very depressing for those who love International RL.
“But if I got the opportunity to play Origin I would definitely grab it with two hands. I reckon it’s the biggest thing in rugby league, it’s bigger than international footy to be honest."
This is additionally disappointing after what has gone on after the World Cup (i.e. pretty much nothing). This will only be the start of players representing countries like Tonga, Samoa, Fiji, PNG thinking 'I can't just wait around for the next 3/4 years hoping for some meaningful internationals.'
