Don't overlook it as NZ found out yesterday. We love teasing them by giving
them early wins then winning the cruncher.

Still, not bad for a country that probably only has about five thousand
players.

Surprised.  I thought the same could be said of  Australia.

Even Australian friends of mine, who prefer Union over League but enjoy
playing and watching both codes, will concede that interest in League
expressed in terms of both playing and spectating, is higher in Australia.

However, they argue that union has benefitted from the S12 and from the
disasterous introduction of a rival and competitive Super League in
Australia and should receive a further boost from the Oz WC triumph and
hosting of the games in 2003.

Just wondering how much tougher could the Oz be if some of the top, hardened
and skilled OZ league players were available to Union.  It makes their 2 WC
victories seem all the more remarkable when you consider their small player
base and the compeition for their allegiances.

Dont forget Aussie Rules is the main code in Western Australia, Victoria,
and South Australia

  RL does rate higher than RU in Australia ( the gap is closing) but it
still falls way behind AFL (Australian Rules) in viewing numbers and
players.

Only if New South Wales and Queensland declared independence - in the
other 6 states/territories, as well as the country as a whole,
Australian Rules Football (aka aerial ping-pong) is the leading
code...

        Do they pull out the typewriters which give rise to this crap???

Notice the inferiority complex that some Union fans have towards League??
