    Ive set the machine to record the england match. I cannot get over the size of some of these rugby players. What do they eat. Im trying to think what position i could play in . Certainly wouldnt be getting involved in that big group hug thing. Id get flattened.

    I feel myself drawn to comment 'seriously' on this thread.
    Kick and clap is bloody rubbish and it's an injustice that it gets so much coverage compared to Rugby League which is a better game in every way.

    The problem with League is that they sold out to Murdoch 15 years ago so unless you want to fork out for a sky dish and subscription you are limited to a few highlights and cup games. Rugby League World Cup is never going to take off because there are only 3 nations who play the game to any decent standard and it usually boils down to whether us or New Zealand play the Aussies in the final.

    Having said that i was forced to play Union at school and have hated the game ever since

    It's not so bad when you get into it! As a league supporter for many years it was hard work making sense of some of it - so much less blood! My eldest plays for school and club at Union so it was a case of getting to grips with it - rapid.

    Re: Rugby World Cup

    As an interesting aside (or not as the case maybe!) ....the International Rugby Board (Union) has 93 countries in their World Rankings compared with just 29 for the Rugby League International Federation (slightly more than Lacrosse).

    Anyway.....come on England:thumbup:

    The Argentinian kicking is poor today. Not the first time their long range artillary has been off target!
