Re: League World Cup Gone*

The NH isn't exclusive in having players of Pacific Island origin playing for them. IMO the issues are largely funding. I've long felt the PIs aren't supported enough, supported with infrastructure and not given as much elite test matches as they deserve. I don't think their image has been maximize...

Kicking someone in the face is not the same as a clumsy tackle or mistimed kick chase.
