Just a question, can Samoa pick Milford if he doesn't go to the rwc with Australia? Would really like to see some close games this world cup from some of the pacific nations.
Qualifying is all done. Draw for the 2017 RLWC is being released in about an hour...
There was an article a couple weeks ago that they were trying to change things so players like Milford could play for Samoa if they weren't picked for Australia. At the moment I think it's a no, though not 100% sure.
Better get your ass to that game if the Kiwis make it. I'll even chip in ...
d@mn that draw. I'm going to have to try and get tickets for at least 4 games, if not 6. (will aim for the Samoa game at Mt Smart, the two games in Hamilton, Wellington Quarter Final - assuming that's the one the kiwis will be in, then the semi, and if I can convince the wife... Brisbane for the final)
I think the top 3 teams from Pools A and B go into the quarters. Top team from each of C & D go into the quarters.
