    Praps the staging of the game @ Shenzhen will trigger some sort of enthusiasm, and the Chinese could field a team in the 2017 World Cup. Now, that would be something, you know how patriotic they are.

    We could tackle 2 or more of their players at a time. They only come up to your knees you know.

    They have 1.5 billion people and some of them ARE big. Just need to get those ones interested in RL. Geoff Toovey is proof you dont have to be big to play the game in a big style.

    The big large ones come from the North. Mao was big and could have been useful in the front row.

    So, anyway, think this is a good idea for game promotion and would be good for MWSE given the followng two conditions:

    1 We have a bye the week after

    2 It is the Raiders home game that is used for the China weekend. Not the Brooky round.

    It is a good idea.

    They're always friendly, and they're ready to please

    1) Both teams will surely need it after that travel

    2) You would think so with it being Huawei being the sponsor driving it.

    Plus Manly could gain a huge amount of new fans.

    This could be a very lucrative for us and the raiders in the future.

    Why is John Ribot de Brisac, son of a French dustman, not onto this?
