    Ha ha, it was similar to league in that they were fit, could pass and tackle.
    Comment on tv was 35mins ball in play is good here.
    Them lads work on 60mins.

    Tackling in kick n clap is a joke , for the most part its just one fat bloke running into another from 2 yards away.

    In all fairness stopping Sonny Bill (ex RL ) seemed to be quite difficult

    Oh ya. But in league we know and embrace their game in order to improve ours.

    As usual league sets the standard and union copies.

    Lets face it, Union has got a hell of a lot to learn from League, a game which is superior in every way.

    Those recent England/New Zealand league games were enthralling .
    I've just decided I don't trust you anymore.

    It looks like this years RWC will be missing one of the worlds best players, the Australian, Israel Folau. He has been sacked for his Christian beliefs. Whilst I do not agree with what he has said I do wonder whether the same action would have been taken if he followed one of the other religions.
    The next Football World Cup is due to take place in Qatar in 2022. Plenty of people over there with the same views as Folau but I don’t hear much about a boycott.
    I wonder why?
