    Should Australia be Excluded from the World Cup?

    Yes imo.

    It would be good for the game.

    Why couldn't you just have voted "Yes", eh?

    I considered splitting up the states as an idea, but NSW would go through undefeated anyway so it'd be a useless one.

    Haha. Awesome thread. I definitely would like to see what would happen if Australia was excluded from thumping and annihilating everybody.

    There's a bracket of 6-8 teams below Australia that could beat each other on any given day.

    We could have this World Cup (excluding Australia)

    And an Australian Cup (All the states battle each other like usual except all the intl players are permanent members of their respective states)

    I know this isn't serious - but in general people should appreciate the class of the Australian side over the past decade and reliaze the best players from around the world step up against the Aussies.

    Look at Michael Vaughan decent Test player, but everyone was saying he was up there with Tendulkar and Lara just cause he had a good series against Australia!

    One of the Aussie states would make the semis of the World Cup IMO..

    In saying all this, Australia don't have the Cup won, still 2 huge matches to go.

    This is a waste of bandwidth.

    I answered "Yes".

    They should let Australia A play instead. That'd be much better.

    What would the Australians do?

    Perform bad so they get to play in the World Cup..

    Other countries should develop their game to be at Australia's level, rather then want Australia out of the Cup. It would be a very hollow victory, that is for sure.

    I think all of the answers are pretty irrelevant tbh.
