    Anyone listen to The Full Eighty podcast?

    They said during a meeting in England that it was the players union's decision for Australia to not play GB. Was not a finance issue but the Australian players thought they are playing to many games already.

    If thats so? It's embarassing. Pretty poor from the players. And very naive!

    Who the hell is in this players union? I highly doubt that players who are not regulars in the Australian team think they are playing too many games for Australia.

    So there’s currently no current Australian reps on the board. Is Cam Smith, Tim Mannah and Eloni Vunakece deciding that Australians are playing too many games?

    Seems to be more closer to the truth. Given that a test between the Lions and Kangaroos would be financially viable. And extremely crucial for the development and overall regard of the code . Even if the players came up with that surely the administrators would have noticed a massive mistake happening? So not just the players in this stuff up!
