World XVIII take first points at U16 Champs

Good effort by the South Pacific and great result for the World XVIII.  I'd expect South Pacific to start to dominate this group one day and get "promoted" up a level (the draw seems to be organised as 3 tiers).

How the hell does SA smash Vic Metro like that?  I would've expected a narrow result in either direction.

I know our focus is on the international sides, but I'm amazed at the SA results.  In round 2 they've beaten WA by over 10 goals after smashing Vic Metro.  These kind of margins are unheard of for the top division I would've thought.  Following on from SA's win of the U18s tournament, can we please bring back State of Origin in about 10 years time because SA seem to be producing their best crop of young footballers since the early 1980s era that saw the SANFL debut of players like Kernahan, Motley, Bradley, Platten, McGuiness - players that would become VFL/AFL stars and help SA become very successful in State of Origin for a few years in the late 80s.
