  1. I play with 2 guys living in NSW and our club is in Qld.
  2. I live in a small town in Southeast Queensland. It's absolutely everywhere and nothing comes close. Number plates with your NRL club logo are all over the place. Bumper stickers, jerseys and memorabilia in shop windows. You would swear no other sport existed.
  3. One of the best I've ever seen. Certainly the best hooker of all time. For me it's still Darren Lockyer. Maybe the highest ceiling of any player ever. He'd be my first pick of a GOAT XIII.
  4. The RLIF needs to step in and either make more recent matches even more heavily waited for rankings or have a process whereby ranking points deteriorate with time.
  5. Could see South Africa back in with a chance being the highest ranked MEA team? Who knows.
  6. I really don't see the USA beating Cook Islands if they both use their strongest teams.
  7. The team that played against Fiji was missing quite a few stars. With nearly 80,000 Lebanese born Australians and over 230,000 Lebanese by ancestry, there is many decades worth of heritage players coming through.
  8. The latest Chasing Kangaroos podcast touches on it. https://podcasts.google.com/?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy8xMDNmZmM0L3BvZGNhc3QvcnNz&episode=OWJjYTZkMDEtODZlMy0xY2FmLWJlZGYtY2ZlMzQwOWI3ZmNk
  9. https://www.nrl.com/news/2019/06/26/pacific-tests-restructure-cook-islands-in-lebanon-out/ Looks like part of my plan is happening.
  10. Australia and England can do whatever they want. I think Ireland, France, Wales, Lebanon, Italy and Jamaica need to have their own annual 6 nations in the Northern Hemisphere. NZ, Samoa, Tonga, PNG, Fiji and Cook Islands need their own Southern Hemisphere 6 nations. They need to introduce new rules around rankings so teams start to lose their points the longer they don't have a game to force Australia to play more or lose their spot.
  11. Chasing Kangaroos is probably my favourite. I think it's the spiritual successor to LeagueCulture which I miss. Rugby Reloaded and The Hard Yards are also great.
  12. I've been thinking of a points "atrophy" or "degradation" system where, if a team (say the Kangaroos) don't play X number of games per year then their World Ranking points start to diminish. It could encourage teams to play more games to keep their rankings.
  13. Jamaica win 26 - 24. Both teams social media needs to be run better.
  14. How about simply helping new nations out. With anything. Ever.
