Mal Meninga wants shorter pre-season, return to NZ tours Australia coach Mal Meninga believes no NRL player should take part in more than two pre-season games and wants the green and golds to tour New Zealand – something that hasn't happened since 1993. The record-breaking former national captain – who faces his first Test coaching showdown with Wayne Bennett's England this Sunday – also says he'll walk away from the post if he thinks he's doing a good job but players aren't responding to him. While some believe the cashed-up NRL should do more for Australia's opponents, Meninga says: "[It's] about providing better events, getting back to … Kangaroo tours. "That's what the 10-year plan is all about … getting three Tests against the English, maybe playing a mini-series against ... not club sides but Lancashire or Yorkshire or a Prime Minister's XIII or on a tour, going to play France when you come over. "And it's the same thing going back to a mini-tour of New Zealand, again, where you play three Tests against the Kiwis on their home soil. "Leave the financial resources there so they can start to develop their own programs internally. "Instead of the National Rugby League giving them money all the time, let's play games. Let's provide some entertainment for them, some events, some programs, tournaments and campaigns. They benefit from that when we go to that particular country." Asked how such games could be fit into a crowded schedule, Meninga answered: "If the game thinks the international program is important – and I think it does, at the moment – then let's have a look at the National Rugby League competition and how many rounds we have. Let's have a look at Origin. "I personally think the pre-season has to be decreased. If we want a strong international program that allows us to go away…. [you could have] … a maximum number of games each player can play. The clubs have got big squads so you might limit your players to two games during that pre-season, as an example."
