You're missing the point Grouch. One good game doesnt justify a tournament that, to any objective observer, is a farce. Its interesting that you can't stand mediocrity when it comes to the Dragons, but you're cool with it at what should be the highest level - international football. Again I'll restate that I'd love to see a stronger International game - but we're no way near a competitive playing field after the top 3 or 4 teams. Look at NZ. They lose a few players - for "disciplinary" reasons and a few defectors. All of a sudden, a mediocre Fiji side can beat them. People are making the mistake of assuming Fiji have improved - no, NZ have gone backwards. Meanwhile the top side in the tournament, Australia, could afford to lose 2, possibly 3 entire squads of players before they'd fall back to the rest of the field. I'd like to see smarter rules on eligibility and a fairer distribution of pay to help the minnows. Get them playing more regularly against opposition more suited to them.
