    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.
    Totally agree Danbert.
    Watching my local amateur team East Leeds this afternoon and then Rhino's v Huddersfield tomorrow

    Not remotely interested in the RU World Cup :thunbdown:

    Its funny really but I got into rugby league through my youngest daughter (!!) playing it, having been brought up down south in die hard rugby union territory. I absolutely love watching league, whilst I find rugby union really frustrating a lot of the time - so much kicking and scrambling and fannying about in a heap and also a ridiculous amount of penalties and stoppages (and points scored from penalties). League still remains a game where scoring tries is what its all about. Anyway I'll still enjoy the RU world cup, but without getting carried away with it all.

    Oh and the pre-game 'scary' dances of Tonga and New Zealand - that was just cringe enducingly embarrassing

    Me neither Rhino - I can't understand why anyone would want to watch a game made up of CONSTANT knock ons, forward passes, penalties, five minute scrums, few tries and lots of goal kicking.

    The number of tries scored in Union that have had a forward pass somewhere in the build up is amazing.

    You certainly dont get 5 minute scrums in League because the scrum half is allowed to feed the ball into his own second row

    And there aren't that many tries in Rugby Union to start off with.

    I genuinely tried to get into the game this morning but found it really difficult. It was just so boring. Did notice though the rather rotund nature of some of the forwards on both sides.....some real porkers.

    Precisely MD - union players tend to come in two distinct forms.

    They are either skilled athletes with strength, speed and an unmatched will to win - these players are procured by Union clubs from their superior bretheren - Rugby League clubs.

    The other types tend to be pale, doughy, fat, creatures who consider walking to a lineout or a scrum to be a physical workout.

    What a change watching 2 sides from down under.
    Much better than the dross I normally watch on tv.
