Europeans give the Aussies an early scare

Well, to be honest I'm a little disappointed, but I also don't know the circumstances.  It might be a case of wanting to consolidate domestically rather than spending resources on a tour - Finland look to be pretty stable internally at the moment, and even have a few new clubs.  In that case it might be the wiser decision to make.

As opposed to e.g. when Spain came to the IC based on really only one club (Madrid Bears) and then burnt out afterwards.

We'd obviously really like to see the next crop of nations step up into being competitive on a full "test-playing nation" basis, but I'm definitely in the camp who feel you need a strong domestic comp first.
