    Never said they were trying to spoil it, only that there were stumbling blocks that had to be overcome for the game to go ahead that were coming from Leeds as well as Melbourne, I don't understand why you find that so unbelievable, but whatever keep telling yourself that everything is the Australias' fault instead of controlling what you can and keeping your own back yard clean.

    Then you've got a very warped and naive way of seeing things...

    So how many Leeds fans would be looking at making the trip roughly?

    Got my ticket on Wednesday with PAX just over 5000.

    Not a bad game for my first trip to AAMI Park.

    Depends if there's any still on the Ashes tour.

    It's about time we didn't buckle to the whingers in England and meet their needs. It should alternate biannually to the home nation for where it's held.

    Are you f**king stupid or just dumb?

    Countless ESL champions down the years have said they'd love to go to Australia and play...but the NRL champs never wanted to host..

    Google it! The facts are all there!

    How would that work? There's barely enough interest from Australia to hold it once a year, let alone twice

    I think you'll find that it's the NRL's apathy that's preventing that

    I'm keen on travelling down to Melbourne from the Gold Coast to watch this game.

    One year Australia, one year England. Simple.

    Someone disagrees with my dribble, I call them 12. Go worry about your broke, failure of a club.

    Interesting perspective that Brisbane have to last years 'International trial'...

    Talks are also taking place on holding future World Club Challenge matches in either the Middle East, Singapore or North America. Melbourne and the side they defeated in the NRL Grand Final, North Queensland Cowboys, did not want to travel to England to face the Super League champions.

    As a result, there will be no official World Club Series in 2018, meaning League Leaders’ Shield winners Castleford have missed out on a money-spinning tie against Australian opposition.

    A venue in a city which is about half way between here and the UK would be prefect for the WCC and all parties concerned i would have thought as neither could have no excuses for not traveling.
    As a game we need to chase the corporate dollar more and spread the games appeal.
