Carr says if it ain't broke, don't fix it
Australian Rugby League boss Geoff Carr says the sport's international eligibility rules are adequate and don't need to be changed.
Carr made the comments following a Rugby League International Federation meeting on the Gold Coast today when a proposal was put forward to include France in a quad-series involving Great Britain, Australia and New Zealand from 2009.
Carr says rugby league's eligibility rules stand up well compared to other codes, despite the Nathan Fien fiasco that led to the hooker being kicked out of the Tri Nations and New Zealand stripped of two competition points.
England's governing body has been granted permission to trial a sideline interchange board at Super League matches to help prevent trainers from being on the field too long.
