Thoroughly enjoyed the Wheelchair competition in Medway, it has been well organised, only disappointment is that I am working tomorrow and so will miss the final. All the best to the England team who are now the only definite hope of a team from the host nation being able to lift the World Cup.

It's good to hear from someone who has actually been. 

 

We do have two England teams through to their respective finals: the wheelchair team and the students.  So both venues will have a home nation team to cheer for.  Let's hope both of them pull off a win!

England women seem to be scoring at will in their 3/4 play off against France.  42-0 according to the latest update just after half time.


Cheer up, RL is actually rather good

Despite a stirring comeback, England narrowly failed in their quest to retain their Wheelchair World Cup. Though England found themselves trailing at one stage by 42-16, they valiantly fought back to lose by just two points 42-40. England almost took the game to Golden Point, having scored the last minute try they needed, but were unable to add the conversion. The result enables France to claim their first world title. Les Bleus have been worthy winners of the tournament going unbeaten in their five games and used a mixture of pace passing and strong defence to dominate their games. A shout out too to their marvellous supporters who have sung, waved their tricolours and mascots every time that the French have registered a score. Also a big thank you to the organisers, I am sure that everyone who attended the games at Medway Park enjoyed the experience and marvelled at the exploits of the top athletes that we have seen.

In that lineup it says England had 12 players but France had 13! Is there a reason for that?
PROUD TO BE A MEMBER OF http://www.rugbyleaguecares.org/ and http://www.walesrugb...-wales-for-2013
Predictions for the future -
Crusaders RL to get a franchise for 2012 onwards -WRONG
Widnes Vikings also to get a franchise - RIGHT
Crusaders RL to do the double over Widnes and finish five places ahead of them -WRONG
Widnes Vikings NOT to dominate rugby league in years to come! STILL TO COME

I promise to pay �10 to the charity of Bomb Jacks choice if Widnes Millionaires finish above the battling underdogs Crusaders RL. I OWE A TENNER!

They look like squad numbers - it's 10 a side - 5 playing and 5 subs.

Australia win the Womens World Cup - Aus 22 NZ 12.

 

And yesterday the Aussies beat NZ in the Forces WC 32-22.

 

Just the Student final to go. Hopefully England can win this one.

As at just before halftime, it's 10-0 to England.

Alas, we lost 16-26. 

 

That's four cups to Australia and one to France.  How disappointing. 

 

I guess it's down to the men to show the Aussies who is boss.

Shame that, particularly after leading at half time.

 

So come the year end it'll be 4 cups to Australia, 1 to France, and the big one to England. ;)

RFL CEO PRIASES FESTIVAL OF WORLD CUPS

Rugby Football League Chief Executive Nigel Wood praised the outcome and organisation of the Festival of World Cups, which came to a climax on a triple header Finals Day at Headingley Carnegie Stadium.
“The Festival of World Cups has been a wonderfully uplifting celebration of international Rugby League and showcased the amazing diversity and excellence that can be found across the whole sport,” he said.  
“We have seen some fantastic matches, played in a great competitive spirit, with many outcomes going right to the hooter, including the finals of both the Wheelchair World Cup and Police World Cup being decided by a two point margin. With over 7000 fans enjoying the games live as well as Premier Sports covering the tournaments it has been a great opportunity for the diversity of Rugby League to reach new audiences.”
He added, “I especially want to thank all the volunteers, who have played a tremendous role at all the venues, as well as the teams, officials and tournament organisers for their part in such a tremendous event.”
“The successful Festival of World Cups has undoubtedly played its part in a momentous year for the sport in this country, with the Rugby League World Cup to follow in the autumn.”
Australia won four of the five titles for Police, Armed Forces, Students and Women, with France the Wheelchair champions.
