One that after watching a streamed game provided by AngrySeahorse should be considered are Newcastle. The standard looked fairly good. Very physical. Blokes with genuine gas. If the ARU are keen to bring it to a 10 team comp in the near future Newcastle could be worth a look. They have a reasonably good facility from the stream. Fairly comparable to the Vikings ground. The question of Country seems easy enough to me. The Greater Newcastle area encompasses 460,657 residents with 308,000 in Newcastle metro itself (wiki figures) so it's a city unto itself so I don't see any conflict there.
