    The "who the f**k cares" remark covers your attitude. And don't do the smiling assassin stuff with people that know your intent. You are not a genuine rugby league fan . You are a union stooge! That's fact!

    It will be viewed in "Primetime" in the markets that matter for the majority of those teams. How will delaying it two more hours benefit NZ, Fiji, Tonga or Samoa? Countries that need the benefit infinitely more than Australia does. Unlike you, most believe Australia isn't the centre of the world.

    I would reply but you’re not coherent.

    I put this in the triple header thread but will post it here as it is being discussed...

    Does anyone think there is a chance Aus/Tonga goes on last?

    It would make sense if they believe the majority of the fans there will be Tongan and also makes sense for Aus TV. It would also give the Kiwi fans a chance to bail well and truly before the RWC final.

    I suppose most NZ based Tongan fans are actually Kiwi fans as well though?

    No. NZRL would be insane to devalue their product by making the Kiwis the support act.

    I think the use of “Oceania" rather than "Pacific" is unfortunate but at least we have already got an anthem

    At a time when international rugby league requires relevance in its biggest market? Scheduling could have been much better. The Kiwis do need better scheduling arrangements for big rugby league events like the Grandfinal though. The 7.40pm kick off in NSW translates into an after 9.30pm view time in NZ. This market deserves better.A 5.30pm NRL gf kickoff would be so good in so many ways. So yes, I can see how the tv issues ride both ways. So I'm not really Australian centric. This particular international event has many dubious timing issues. But some can't see this.

    Nope. You just cannot handle good business sense!

    Maybe moving the thread on a bit, I’m really torn who would be the best winner from Group B.

    PNG - would be great to see them win something, a confidence boost after a pretty solid showing in the World Cup.

    Samoa - the most likelihood of having, um, ‘players decide they want to play for them’. Could do a Tonga and surprise people?

    Fiji - well, they beat NZ, and have made the WC Semis three times. But never seem to have the ability to actually kick on. If the NSWRL Team gets approved, a strong showing would be a fantastic boost to the game there.

    PNG for sure. It’s nice to see nations with homegrown talent succeed.

    Everyone talking that the Triple Header will clash with the RWC Final as though the All Blacks making it is a fait accompli.

    Shame there wasn't this much chatter about our own RLWC!

    It's reasonably likely
    And even if not the RWC Final will still be a big deal in NZ.

    PNG would be ideal, Fiji next best outcome.

    How likely is it that the RWC final doesn't include at least one of NZ, Australia and one of the home nations?

    I probably should have put a sarcasm emoticon in the post.
