But when a Nation has no domestic games for 4 years or more and just has a National team, should they really be ranked? I am of the opinion no. If you dont have a domestic League or any clubs actually playing a League like the Scandinavian League for example then you shouldnt be ranked. I dont see the point of the rankings and they serve no real purpose and are open to much questioning about things.
If you ask me only RLIF members should be considered for the rankings but you know how it is with the RLIF, at least they are acknowledging that nations other than Australia, NZ and England actually play the sport which is more than we usually get from them.
