Wigan won fair and square and caught Brisbane out ( it was a long time ago Mate)
One of 3 games from around 20 played in the Southern Hemisphere.
The top SL side would not beat the top NRL side with all things being equal.
NRL cast offs are stars in those SL sides.
Look at Leeds, who would make a top NRL club from Leeds? who would even make an NRL Club?
Burgess and Ellis are going ok and their Clubs this year are performing well but they are traditionally Clubs that do not make the finals
Hang on a minute,Burgess and Ellis are regarded as the best second rowers here in Australia,by no other than Gould and Fittler so they are going better than OK.Flanagan at the Tigers is doing OK ,gets a run most weeks and is in the squad.Wests Tigers won the GF just a few years ago and "traditionally"Souths have won more championships than all the other teams in Sydney.
You metion players who would make it here in OZ from the UK Superleague,well Skandalis is getting a run at Wests,unheralded Flanagan at Wests,Crossman and Fitzhennry who were released by HKR are getting games at Souths and the Tigers.Last season at the Roosters Tansey went well at a very average Roosters team.
I remember Jason Smith coming back from Hull FC and despite his age and chain smoking managed two seasons in the NRL at the Raiders and Cowboys.
Even Langer came back fron Warrington to play SOO,there are some very average players in the NRL just as there is in Super League.
I can speak Esperanto like a native.
