I agree.....quality has improved in the 2nd half.....less tries and it genuinely could go either way at this point

What a shot from Huby on Ah Van, absolutely huge shot. I'm thoroughly entertained by this game. Considering it's between a recently promoted side and a club who apparently in disarray this is a brilliant match. Just shows how good RL is.

The 1st half was dire. The 2nd half has been pretty good though and the quality in both attack and defense has been better imo.


If I was Danny Orr i'd have a little word with Milner about that dive though :lol:

Maybe do it if you're 40 points up and its the last minute but when you need that try to level the scores?! :)

For me entertaining is brilliant as a neutral, the standard on offer obviously isn't the highest but it's a great watch. You can't compain IMO.

2 poor teams fighting it out that's all. It's entertaining because its a close game but brilliant rugby it is not.

I can see Clarke going to Wire in a season or two. I expect him to be playing for England when he goes there.

Rangi's post match interview sounds like he's gone to me.

I think that's harsh. Some of the plays to score the tries were brilliant. The stats show few missed tackles but plenty of breaks, so the tries have had to come from good play. If the tries had come from missed tackling and walking through then yeah I'd agree, but they haven't.

Fantastic game. Great entertainment. Sublime skill at times. Tense finish. Yet some people will complain about it!

Good enjoyable tight game.

Has there been better rugby been played elsewhere? Yes. So what?

Why do we have to benchmark every ###### game?
