Well they hardly have a recognised international tradition in the first place.
Ice hockey probably beats us in terms of nations playing TBH. Baseball a little more restricted.
both in north america play with the canadians and class them selves as world champs, clueless fools

dont bring american sports into it, they dont count, they win the superbowl and are classed as world champions, its a domestic competition
I'm not. Ice hockey is an example of a dominant league in one nation that doesn't regularly engage with the large worldwide international competition. I'm wondering if with current Aussie attitudes and the European leagues heading for semi-pro status whether we might end up in the same situation?

Maybe but the trouble with him is he doesn't put his brain into gear.

The Aussies have never been interested in the international game, all they care about is the NRL and state of origin. Every decision they make is to improve their domestic game , they will play internationals when it suits them

International Rugby League is the biggest joke ever . 3 nations can cherry pick any players they want as they have grade A status regardless if they have played for another nation.

2002 and EW is hooked

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.
