I'm off to look in twitter for people claiming it would be sold out if it was GB playing.


This game is a godsend for the moaners. England win and it's meaningless, England win well and it's even worse, England lose and we might as well all start playing rugby union.
Cheer up, RL is actually rather good

This game is a godsend for the moaners. England win and it's meaningless, England win well and it's even worse, England lose and we might as well all start playing rugby union.


And (final one on this point) if Myler has a poor game it's because he's a poor player, but score five tries and it's because he's just a good support player.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

To be fair, the stand behind the camera is pretty full!

Did you see that knock on from Myler, why isn't Lomax playing?

And why didn't either winger go round under. the posts? Tom Briscoe would have done.

"Cough."

You wouldn't blame Tomkins for going to Union looking at the potential crowds he could be playing in front of at Twikkers

The sooner we get a couple of SL sides in Wales the better.

RL fans don't attend games against Aus because they are sure to lose. Yet games against 'lesser' nations aren't worth attending either.

I don't understand.

I do - fans want to watch games where results are in doubt

So we can forget about ever having good crowds for internationals then..

And what explains the crowds for Wales RU against the All Blacks?

The Welsh kicking's been poor. Looking a bit handy at flicking the ball around, but seem to be a bit surprised when it happens. Beautiful play resulting in that try, fantastic running from Hardakre.

Looking on twitter......
The RFL are idiots and clowns because the Aussies and Kiwis refused to play or host us and we have to make do with what we have.

Sometimes, I really cannot stand RL fans.

More nice link play from the halves. Another nice offload from Cudjoe to put Hall in.

TBH mate I've stopped looking! I spent my time browsing the RLWC site and buying a couple of tickets for NZ v Samoa and Italy v Scotland. Much more positive use of my time!

I know what you mean mate. But lots of people doing the slating are ex or current players.

OK its not a world shaking event but ffs it gets on my ####.
