If that was the case then it sure haven't shown it. England has been able to develop better all around talent than Australia in the last 10 years IMO. Like I said the development by Cricket Australia hasn't been up to scratch of late. They'd want to do something about it pretty soon too.

There have been a few who went to Cricket first but have now changed back to give AFL a shot.
