Recommended Posts

Is Australia deliberately trying to get all the mistakes out of their system?

Just announced that Lebanon played two players under age of 18. IRL elected not to disqualify the win against England.

So Lebanon field ineligible players and it's "no worries"?

Not the England deserved to win but that seems bizarre.

I just listened to that. I’m pleased for them but that’s ######. They broke the rules and should be disqualified. To let them carry on as long as they don’t play those two players from now on makes a nonsense of the rules (regardless of whether or not it’s a stupid rule in the first place!)

I wondered about the Lebanese players when the commentators said some of them were still at school. You have to be 18 to play NRL but I wasn't sure if there was an IRL rule.

How would you feel about complaining that "We wuz robbed because they beat us with 17-year-olds."

Lebanon fielding minors should have helped England..

England looked like they picked big strong women and Australia picked faster athletic women..

You can play a test match at 16 and 9 months. That's the rules. Why is 9s different?

It's because the IRL is the NRL's lapdog.

Don’t think we’ve twigged how to do 9s yet. We’re like a 1970s one-day cricket side compared to the modern day.

Is now too early for the "English 9s disaster" thread?

I think that, just like the mens' game, we start off with a much much bigger player pool so your chances of producing A-list players are better. (Among other reasons, of course)

I hope governing bodies stick with it as it’d be exciting to see how it all evolves.
