some of them could - agree. but others in that side might be on close to the minimum wage etc. It's a good Samoan side - so the starters could probably all look after their families with their contracts. Some of the fringe players on the other hand (not specifically Samoa, but the likes of Ireland, the likes of Tonga, Fiji, PNG etc)...
Coming from McGuire it's a bit of a strange excuse. But I still think they should be paid
they probably do get paid he say's "we get [hardly] anything" which is probably something and if they weren't picked then it's nothing anyway.
so what about the players that don't play internationals how do they feed there kids i guess you're kids go hungry unless you play for aus/nz
