Calls for the Rugby League Four Nations tournament to be replaced by a One-Nation tour are growing louder in the wake of Australia’s 34-8 dumping of New Zealand at a small stadium somewhere in England.
Many called this event a litmus test in preparation for the 2017 Rugby League World Cup which Scoreboard Shockers.com can exclusively reveal has already been won by……..you guessed it, Australia.
As a reward for running over all other teams and ensuring TV ratings back home were very, very low, SC understands the Kangaroos may get to play with themselves in a pre-season trial next year.
Meanwhile some nations are proposing the establishment of a World Cup Seven’s elimination series.
Members of the top two winning teams would qualify to miss out on playing in the World Cup and bypass playing the Kangaroos while spending more time at home working on their relationships and fixing up the garden.
