BRAD DREW was pleased for the British game that the Lions beat Australia in Sydney two weeks ago.
But national pride will prevent the Giants star from wanting to see a Tri-Nations repeat in Brisbane tomorrow (preview on page 42).
Great Britain turned on the style to beat the mighty Kangaroos 23-12, 13 days ago.
It was a result which made the Australian media start to sit up and take note.
The 31-year-old Giants Player of the Year admitted he was delighted to see that happen.
But the proud Australian draws the line at wanting to see the old enemy beat his country in their own back yard for a second time.
"That win the other Saturday has to be good for the British game," said Drew.
"A lot of the Aussie press have a bit of a downer on the game over here. They don't seem to have too much time for Super League.
"But the Great Britain win over us in Sydney has forced a bit of a re-think.
"Personally, I'm happy about that.
"Having spent two seasons in the British game, I know how high the standard in Super League really is.
"It's a quality competition, with quality players in it, and that was shown with that last performance.
"Hopefully, Great Britain will prove very competitive once again this weekend.
"But this time, I hope Australia emerge victorious. I certainly know I'll cop a fair bit of stick around town if we don't!
"I know we're smarting from that result in Sydney, and I know the Brits are smarting from their defeat against a fantastic New Zealand last week.
"Tomorrow has all the makings of a great game."
