Australia's National Rugby League clubs are discussing the future of the Tri-Nations at a two-day meeting in Sydney. Some clubs are against the competition being played every year, because of the danger of "burn-out" for players. The Australian captain, Darren Lockyer, however, said on his arrival home that the players are strongly in favour of it continuing, provided it can be reorganised to take them away for a shorter period.
