Even though this is a NZ based forum, I'm betting not every Warriors fan will be backing the Kiwis as their No.1 team.

So, which nation's flag will you be flying in this World Cup? And who is your bandwagon team should your first choice get knocked out of the tourney?

Maybe even switch up your avatar to rep your home nation!

It's the Kiwis for me quite obviously. And the second cab off the rank is Mate Ma'a Tonga - I expect big things from these boys in 2013.

Is it weird that a NZ born Pakeha with English heritage doesn't back the motherland? I don't know... maybe deep down I do... just a bit ;)

New Zealand,

I don't think it's weird to not support the english, I think all my ancestors were peasent farmers somewhere in the south of england, but I generally root for the brits to loose in any sport, unless its against 'straya. I like reading the english media hysteria when they lose in cricket, football, union, probably not applicable to the RL team. But i'm sick of the burgessesss, so screw them.

#2 Tonga, but if i'm being honest only because they have the next best team after the top 3 and Konrad.
#3 PNG, I like how unconventional they are, and having RL as the national sport is cool.

Kiwis first obviously. Aside from them, I have a British passport and half of my family lives in England, so they're the natural second choice as far as heritage goes, though I feel no connection to England at all. Honestly I'd probably rather see Tonga/Samoa do well.

KIWIS first.
Tonga and the other Pacific Islands second.
Kumuls third.
Scotland fourth (heritage).
The other minnows.
England. (only if they're playing Australia - although I do hope that Tomkins has a ripper of a tournament and comes through it 100% fit).

And never Australia.

Kiwis for me, then Cook Islands as im half Raro. But i'm also supporting Tonga as I think they're gonna rip shit up! But Kiwis all the way, Back to back World champs would be nice ;)

Kiwis first and always.

Scotland second (heritage on my mum's side)
Tonga third (mainly for the Warriors in their side, and their mean haka)

Then whoever is playing Australia in the final (if not Kiwis)!
