    52-6 only. I know Serbia lost something like 96-4 against Lebanon last week. Italy I would imagine had more quality players than Lebanon so Serbia must have done alright. Do you know what NRL/Super League players played?

    Hope to see some fringe countries do well during the world cup.

    Lebanon are made up of a big chunk of NSW Cup players and BR Cup players.
    They play Italy this weekend winner into the World Cup.

    Watching the England-Wales game, I think Australia and NZ have very little to fear.

    Given the low standard of play, why not expand to a 'Six Nations' tournament with France and PNG involved? They must surely be little or no worse than Wales are. Those three teams could at least give each other a fright.

    Or is time, money and logistics the key here?

    It's to give the other Countries a shot at the big three (Aus Eng and NZ) and more experience otherwise they only play them every 4-5 years when the World Cup roles around.

    France had a chance to play in the 4 Nations this year but lost the qualifying game to Wales (13 - 12) hence why the Welsh are playing. In saying that the Welsh have over achieved to be where they are at the moment, I'm predicting in the next 5 years we'll see them emerge to really push Engalnd in games and maybe even snag the odd game

    I really think Scotland and Italy will be the next big improvers (that's if Italy can get their local league sorted - going through a Super League type thing at the moment).

    Scotland are trying to get into the the lower English grades at the moment[hr]
    I really think that NRL clubs should be bashing Gil Dudson's door in the bloke was great behind a well beaten Welsh forward pack.
