Did you see the large amount of nations attending the very recent RLEF meeting. This was a child of the RFL. When I see Australia doing anything remotely similar, come back and discuss it.
They only juts figured out that moving into the Pacific Islands would be a good idea. They just tried to stymie the entrance of Italy and the USA into the next world cup and also cut the number of competing countries ( I think). New Zealand had to arrange a test series with France because Australia were too burnt out to play NZ more than once a season.
If you guys think Queensland and NSW are he be all and end all of RL, send the winner to the UK and NZ to challenge their best. Do something for the game other than trumpet your own success and the devil take the rest.
Australia has been developing the Pacific Islands for decades my friend.
I see plenty of Scout troops attend the local Jamboree but it does not mean the Scout movement is going well.
The USA and Italy were not part of the international set up were they? its hard to include none members they say.
Those nations you speak of at the RLEF meeting what does that mean? most of them are two bob setups that have no foundations beyond a couple of PUB TEAMS and one delegate that can accept a free plane ticket to represent "his Nation"
