Tbf if you’re Samoan you should be playing for Samoa
If you’re more than just Samoan you have other options too
Again, by your logic that means plenty of Australia players should be playing for another team

If this post was aimed at me, I'm not telling other races what to do in any way, and you left out fat, ugly and a boomer to boot...

It's what Rugby League should do, so there is a more level international playing field.
Wasn't aimed at you mate....Paul Kent.

I don’t mind the idea of someone playing origin and then for their own country. Origin is the pinnacle of rugby league. The experience the players would take back to their countries they choose to represent would make for a more level international competition instead of Australia just reaping the rewards of the extra games at the highest intensity.
Seems a bit counter productive to Mal’s plan to make International the pinnacle of the game, especially if a player were to choose the indigenous side over Australia. Give them some games against the Maori and poly’s or something, a tour maybe, but not the World Cup

Imagine if Indigenous Australia played Non-Indigenous Australia in the final. That would do Int.RL wonders hey...

Dividing people down racial lines used to be a bad thing.

I'll go for whichever Australia gets their numbering right.

Would be very devisive. Imagine having to choose if you're indigenous or Australian.

I always thought the All Stars game was super weird too.

How about an indigenous world cup? Maoris verse American Indians anyone?
Gather up all the natives from all the lands! We shall pit them against one another for our entertainment!
