    Which Nation has their Rugby Organised BEST?? (and which are a TOTAL MESS?!)

    I found this on YouTube.

    Its European centric, and about 7 months old.

    But very interesting.

    Ireland by a mile (mainly thanks to Aussie cast off Nucifora).

    Even more so when you consider it's only the 5th most popular sport. Similar to Aus but done way better!

    "The Sport Ireland survey also canvassed how many students had attended a match as a spectator or supporter in the last 12 months. The top five sports were Gaelic football (35%), soccer (35%), basketball (25%), hurling (24%) and rugby (22%)"

    Often wonder, does that mean if David Nucifora went to Scotland instead, then they would be contenders instead of Ireland? Or Italy? Or Wales? etc

    Definitely a valid debating point, but I don't think those sports would have as great a draw on body types as AFL and particularly NRL though?

    Finally got time (has to be some upside to being crook, yeah?) to watching the original thread video.
    Is interesting stuff with merit to all of his points, however, probably another 20 minutes of "yeah, but" to explore on each nations pros and cons as applied to another market.
