They should take a leaf out of the England association football team who, for years have donated any match fees that they receive to charity as it’s an honour to play for ones country

Yeah big sacrifice, easy to do when you’re paid £150000 a week anyway.

Well no, which is exactly my point. They couldn't care less about playing internationals. State of Origin is the one that matters there, then the bread and butter of the NRL. That's it.

Well considering the £2k match appearance fee England football players get offered is like offering Joe Public 10p then it’s not really that much of a gesture.

Look at the names of the players.

It’s hardly good old John Smith, ninth generation white Australian, is it?

They are either Tongans or mostly first generation New Zealand or Australia citizens to two Tongan parents.

Glad you think donating £2k to charity isn’t much of a gesture. Before you even try and justify yourself, don’t even bother

It isn’t the big gesture you make out. Given they earn sums of £50-100k or higher a week and sponsorship deals on top on that then £2k isn’t really any different to Joe Public donation £10 to charity.

Likelihood is you didn’t know just how little the appearance fee was by their earning standards before trying to put them on some pedestal.

Should the King really need to plea to include his country in International Rugby League?

For years we have been crying out for another country to become competitive with the 3 tier one nations. It’s outrageous that 1 year on from Tonga’s unbelievable World Cup display, they haven’t managed to arrange a fixture with one of the tier one nations.

Been to numerous England games a great event. The RFL needs to build on that and make them even more of an event.

It's a nice gesture and I'm sure the charities are grateful to receive it, but let's not pretend that it's causing the players to have to make much of a sacrifice. I'm sure that many players do far more for charity than that anyway, so it's not a criticism of them.
