    That’s all well and good and i’m very happy the FIRL have gotten professional support. However shouldn’t they be doing this sort of professional promotions in Italy…not Australia? Just wondering that’s all.

    I Definately find it strange. Obviously they are doing it to get the support of the NRL players. However maybe they should make that more obvious.

  3. It was done because of logistics. It was easier to get Tiziano over to Australia rather than get five players in season, 4 of them from the NRL to get over to Italy. Also we only secured the commitment in writing from the players 7 days before the press conference. I hope this answered your questions.
