At old trafford who should hand the WC (a trophy which needs a name) to the winning captain ?

I think it should Dame Claire Balding, assuming the queen is busy...

Maybe not the World Cup, but if she's not presenting the televsion programme would love to see her present the Challenge Cup. For the World Cup I think Prince Harry would be a great choice

Not good enough is it, fed up with making finals an nearly winning all what matters is winning.


Funny you should mention that. I watched the 1995 final half and hour ago and we wuz robbed. Neither Australia try was scored and we had one disallowed when they called Offiah in touch and he wasn't. It's a pity the video ref wasn't part of the game that day.

If it's the parasite prince then I hope the security sweep of the stadium is a very very thorough one.

Hullfan and Canetman, together.

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.

A member of the royal family or the Prime Minister

It's a World Cup, so it's important it's a figure head....... But I guess that's my opinion

anyone but the prime minister or a member of the royal family!! Same as you, that's just a personal preference/opinion.

Seriously though, I'd be delighted to see the fellas who have won the World Cup for GB do it. Billy Boston, Stevo, Alex Murphy, Chris Hesketh etc.. I'm sure it would mean a lot to any of those guys, and it'd be great to see.

It's not something that keeps me up at nice, but I prefer it to some dignitaries who don't give a stuff about RL. Steve Redgrave in 2000, while not an RL fan in the full-on sense of the word, was a good choice because he'd just marked himself down as one of our greatest ever athletes. Wiggins would certainly be in that category.

Whilst I am not a royalist and think the PM would get a less than warm welcome, it is the World Cup Final.

Clare Balding, et al are all more deserving of the honour (in my opinion), but does the lack of recognition/acceptance/attendance of the Royals/PM only feed into the chippy regional minor sport image?
With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!
