    It is nice but I think they are missing a trick by having it every four years. It should be every two years.

    Every two years would be nice, but $$.

    Looking forward to the calendar mentioned.

    Yeah. 4 year cycle doesnt make sense for a graded comp. Every 2 years allows the all the best 18-19 yos to play.

    Every 4 years so many players will completely miss it.

    Very exciting though I do wonder what sort of sides the likes of England and France will be fielding. Because obviously by age 19 some of their players are already playing Super League. I am guessing those players won't be involved. But I wonder how many of their top players will be.

    This is exciting in that it's the first time (in years) the Tier 1 and Tier 3 nations will clash.
