    Half the talent comes from NZ and PI and minimal to no Australian talent in a supposed national competition comes from outside Qld and NSW.
    Is it really growing the game to invest in areas that are already producing NRL players?

    I think now that there is no biff in origin (the inevitability of biff was always a massive draw card), the "intensity" of origin is not the compelling aspect it once was. Intensity now just equates to passion plus forwards running into each other hard and a fast game with not much emphasis on great combinations and team work. Keep the passion but trade the "intensity" for team work, skilful combinations etc which I think would be achieved with the games being played 1 week apart.

    Totally agree. No organised team training up until mid December. During the offseason the players should be doing their own private stuff, education programs and club promotional work and training on their own. Similar restrictions to those they have in college football should apply.
