You might all be interested in being in Hudds on the Friday before the game, as there is a rugby league celebration event taking place with a few star speakers (plus Tony Collins) in attendance. I will post more info when everything's been finalised.

 

TC and I will be at the game too, so if it fits in with the work obligations I may drag him along to say hello.

Greetings everyone !

 

After some holidays and bank balance juggling I've been able to organise myself a trip to the UK  for the RLWC and would love to meet up with any other forumers at the games so far suggested. Been a forumer for a number of years albeit a bit quiet in recent times as work and life got in the way !!!  How rude !

 

Have definitely got the opening ceremony / double header; Wembley semis and Final locked in with the games England V Ireland; Fiji v Ireland; Cook Is v USA; Scotland v Italy; Scotland v USA; Australia V Ireland most likely to be attended along with at least 2 or 3 of the quarter finals ( dependent on funds and fitness !!!).

 

Would genuinely enjoy the opportunity to meet with some locals - and fellow international rugby league fans - and swap a few stories and laughs over a pint or two ! I was lucky enough to do this 1989 when I went to the third test of GB V NZ watching the locals get gome in Wigan and have great memories of the day.

 

Must admit that i am a pround Australian but to be honest I love the sometimes often maligned international games more than our national team and just hope that the RLWC can deliver a great spectacle to the world. Also have a $10 bet on England to win !!!! (Based more on the powerful forward pack than anything else)

 

Off to the St. George v Broncos game now - which as a Dragons fan living in Brisbane is always interesting. Crowd of 40k plus expected and it is a bright and sunny winters day here so should be a cracker of a day !

 

I am wearing an old away jersey of one the UK RL teams - but will not divulge who's it is for fear upsetting someone !!!! Though as the share a similiar name to my team - you may easily work it out !!!!

Be great to meet up - watch this space

Less than 2 months to go until the tournament starts and the day arrives. My tickets are arriving soon

 

Remind me, where are we meeting up again? Is it still the Turnbridge WMC or are they unable to cater?

That's the plan so far, but not set in stone as others have suggested other pubs etc. I was also waiting for RL Cares to come back to me as I  suggested we do something on the day, however they're having the founders Walks prior to the day, and there is also lots happening the day before - see Viks post 

 

So, if everyone can say where they would prefer eg Turnbridge WMC, the Stadium, another pub......I will set things up

I've not asked them yet...I was waiting for people to respond, but as only a couple have, I have to presume that all the others are ok with it, and will ask them next weekend

Still keen to catch up with you guys at this game .....that is if i can secure a ticket !!!

 

Didn't want to travel over with a bag full of tickets so thought i'd buy one on arrival ....but it seems to be selling very very well !!!!  Which is good for the game ....just not so for me !!!

 

( Actually still anxiously awaiting the other tickets to arrive before i jet off in a couple of weeks - got the OC / Dbl hdr in Cardiff but not the semis or final !!!!!)

Looks like I'll be over for the match. Rejoice, rejoice.


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.

In addition to the photos from the aforementioned Casino Night, I may still have the video of Mr BD92 leading some kind of chant or story (I think cold drink may have been had!)

 

Does anyone remember how to post pictures on here? Been that long and I've totally forgotten

Don't worry Mags, I don't have anything particularly discriminating (nor embarrassing to myself, I think Lisa has that one!)
