Well I just finished listening to Mike Umaga talk about why he thinks Samoa and Fiji voted for Beaumont, he basically said he thinks because Beaumont may have tickled some bellies, and is pretty pissed not with WR, but the fact that the corruption he very strongly hinted at in Island rugby may just continue! He also made an interesting point about why players aren't interested in playing for Island teams, basically because he says they are not receiving moneys that WR is putting into Islands!!
I wouldn't be giving the governing bodies of the islands cash. If I was WR I'd be building things for them at best. A board of expats could run teams based in Australia, pay the players direct and use part of the proceeds to fund infrastructure back home.
