Replacement for Australia


Recommended Posts


Just open it up to Australian players who are still happy to travel and have them compete under a neutral banner like the Russians in the Olympics. Assuming the NRL can't prevent players physically leaving the country of course 🙂

It would have to be USA seeing as they were the ones knocked out in the repechage play-off match.

I think the organisers should issue a public statement saying that USA have officially been put on stand-by to give them chance to prepare in case Australia withdraw. Hopefully that would give the Australians the encouragement needed to sign up.

Let them pull out and ban them from international RL indefinitely.

They can have their state of origin and hopefully after a few years the top Australian players will become bored and move to rugby union for a new challenge on the international scene.

Aussies decide to show up then problem solved.

Well, yes.  

But if they decide not to participate then the World Cup is damaged quite badly.

I get that some people want to be bullish about this, but the fact is they contribute massively to the credibility of the World Cup concept.

Austria, some people won't notice the difference....

In truth they'd be easier to understand at the interviews , have you ever tried to have a conversation with somebody from Queensland ?

My only worry if we swapped for Austrians is some of them can be a bit invadery....

Leigh , that way I might get to see them play this year again , as it seems the rest of SL don't want to play us anymore 

people's Republic of Leyth 

Just don’t base them in their home town because they don’t have a train station.
