Tonga is the best thing to happen to the International scene since Bennett got the Kiwis the world cup. It's seriously awesome viewing having a full house of super passionate supporters, it's excellent television. So of course Channel 9 decided to air the 5PM news instead and have the game on GEM. Prior to today's game, the Tongan boys were getting paid $30 a day to rep for their country. Full respect to guys like TPJ, Lolo, Fafita who could have easily played for other teams but sacrificed a huge amount of money for the betterment of the game. If only there wasn't still so many mercenaries like James Tamou who disgrace the Australian jersey by pretending to give a shit while he's unwilling to submit his citizenship paper work. Real patriot he is. And the rubbish like Radrara being selected. Kaufisi is another one. Sure it's all subjective, but I don't believe for a second those players rep Australia because they're passionate aussies. You just know if the international teams were all on the same $ and same opportunities of big games we'd have a far better international product. Origin is a huge flaw because it's the pinnacle of the game and players will consistently choose Australia just to cash in on that.
