Thats true Dennis we ve got to integrate Italy and other countries into the main stream. I dont think leaving Italy to face the might of USA would enhance the thing,it would just be similar to what we have at the moment with GB/IRE. I will steal Alans "leave no-one behind" idea for this.
In fact GB have hardly any players at all right now ,the numbers have got pretty bad the last few yrs there. Italy is viberant now and all are younger men/women a force for the future,which ,if we are to survive we need that talent mainstream really.Its not the first time ive commented on this as you know,im not sure who has the last say in this but i think its "staring us in the face" of the right path to take and the sooner the better.
Well its a "no brainer really"?
