    I didnt realise the SL season started so early, but i think that actually reenforces my point....

    Why make the SL clubs fry all the way to Australia during their season, when the clubs can meet in the middle and halve the flight for the English teams.

    Why do you persist with this "no one cares" narrative when despite the whinging from Crisis Merchants, the fixture consistently draws crowds better than most NRL games regardless of whether it is held in England or Australia.

    If it’s not Australian it doesn’t matter.

    Just a thought but if I was the organisers I would try and speak to the big names in the Tongan team and see if they were onboard. If so try and ditch NZ in their favour. If the big names are serious about Tonga getting a go at the big three and put their weight behind it (like the kiwis didn’t) I’m sure the entire team would get behind it.

    Yeah cause they only spend more on footy internationally then any other national body bar none...

    Crawley's article is very disingenuous, he knows damn well why the clubs were pissed about the Denver test and why they're not pissed about SOO- money! One basically funds their existence and the other was at their expense...

    Ignoring this fact to attack the RLPA's very stupid red herrings isn't helping anybody, and it just plays to their favour.

    Fix the real issue, that the Denver test was played at the expense of the NRL clubs then they'll support it and all mid-season internationals.

    This bit really pissed me off-
    It's not the NRL's job or their responsibility to plan the international calendar!
    Baring Roos games or the Pacific tests that they organise they should have ZERO input at all unless the game is going to directly effect them! And hey maybe if we put some rules in place so that internationals played during the NRL season (or any leagues season for that matter) effected them and their clubs as little as possible, with you know something like a compensation scheme and some cap relief for players lost to rep footy, then we could completely remove the necessity for the NRL and NRL clubs to be involved at all!

    I mean f**k me passing the buck on to the NRL for everything and blaming them for everything isn't helping, it's compounding the problem, hell it's probably the biggest problem that international RL has!

    With another loss over the Origin period how long before we see the Denver game blamed for the Warriors poor showing against Penrith?

    Considering that the median NRL crowd is about 13k, thats not a high bar...

    If "can get more than 13k inside Australia" is that measure, NO decent game would ever go overseas. That Eng-NZ game probably would have had 16k attending, should we have played that in Campbeltown then?
