Don’t know if this is just rumours but good news for our Aussie members if this is true.

A tournament with two sets of fans who hate each other & are prepared to travel in their numbers worldwide. Hope the Aussie cops are ready for this :shock:

Australia is a massive place. Chances are not all our Aussie fans would be able to travel across Australia to see us.

Australia, 24+million people in the 6th largest country by area, makes it pretty sparsely populated except for the big cities.
I don't know how most Australian fans get to other teams grounds, although I imagine there has to be a mix of public and private transportation just like most other countries.

Huge place, went there for three weeks in 1998. It takes around 4 hours to fly from Sydney to Perth.
The Blue Mountains are fantastic. Loved Sydney as well but there was roadworks going on everywhere as they were getting themselves ready for the 2000 Olympics.

I don't see the country being that big really. A 5.5 hour plane flight from Brisbane to Perth seems pretty normal to me, so I will be organising my tour schedule ;-)
