I really hope NZ get it, although I've just had a thought. What if NZ arranged for quite a few group matches to be played on the Islands? Each group would be allocated an Island just like the Cricket World Cup in WIndies, then the rest of it could be played in NZ. So say Group A was something like;
then they'd play maybe 7 matches in Samoa before flying to NZ for the rest. How long does it take to fly to Samoa from Auckland? If a short time, it could be mixed together.
I bet the IRB would be more favourably disposed to that tournament- Pacific 2015?
