McAlister at second center in England

In his debut at the English Premiership, Luke McAlister has deeply impressed the Sharks supporters as his side defeated Worcester Warriors 15 - 34. Leading 3 - 15 at halftime, victory was never at risk for the Sharks and it allowed an exquisite offensive display by the player who played second five eight with the All Blacks.

It makes me wonder what do they do in England when they don't have Howletts, Haymans, Maugers or McAlisters around.

I was recently watching to a Manawatu vs Waikato game from last Air New Zealand Cup and I wonder whether it was a different sport. What is it that the northern hemisphere lacks that only can get it from New Zealand? Whatever it is, it seems that money can somehow replace it.
