...I saw loads of Hull tops, a smattering of Hull KR, a few Bulls, Wigan, Saints and Salford - quite a few Giants, quite a few Cas. I didn't see any Crusaders or Harlequins, which given that it was played in London was a bit odd.
Non SL clubs - well me (although I was wearing blue and yellow to blend in dry.gif ) Fev, Fev Lions, Cougars, and quite a few from 'Fax, plus one from Siddal - that's the lot from non SL.

You can rest well tonight knowing that there were at least half a dozen Quins shirts on show in Block 141
lower tier near the Press Box. Saw a couple wearing Crusaders shirts in Wembley Way afterwards.

Didnt think overall though there were as many neutrals as in previous years.

Main venue for viewing tops before venturing down Wembley Way was Wok & Roe Chippy, Haddock and Chips for a fiver, not bad I thought. However, that could explain the number of Codheads I saw

The camera panned on to what looked like Bristol sonics shirts.

On land or at sea, we're drawn to to the haddock like moths to a flame.

Loads of South Sydney tops about

Saw a bloke wearing a South Wales shirt with his daughter in a Nottingham Outlaws shirt on the train. Didn't see them at the ground but I can't think where else in London they'd have been heading in that kind of attire.

Bloke just along from me wearing what I think was an Oxford Univerity top- dark blue with yellow V. Can anyone enlighten me?

No but you sold it to the rest of the country before the Cod War - with exception of the West Riding, where we wouldn't be paid to eat cod.

I remember seeing a blue St Helens shirt on the TV. They showed a large section of supporters wearing reddy-brown jerseys with yellow & white 'V's on it in the build-up.
