Just because they were into it it doesn't mean there was Irish representation. The Irish media haven't bought into it. The Irish fans haven't bought into it? What's the point of sticking with such a bad idea?
Instead of turning the RLWC into a farce, the RFL and the RLIF should have worked together on temporarily professionalizing the Irish/Scottish/Italian players by having each SL club have 1-2 of them in their roster which should have considerably lifted their level and potentially led to some of them getting "real" pro contracts with some clubs, and using some heritage players to plug some gaps here and there instead of doing ***k all to develop Ireland's RL and then dressing some Aussies in green for the WC.
Just as the thread was getting back on a somewhat even keel back comes Baldrick with his "farce" comment, which disrupted this thread in the first place. Why are some union fans like that?
