The RLWC games have all been great so far - something of a throwback in fact. Played in "proper" RL conditions with bags of commitment, no little skill - tough but honest.

 

So what if the Aussies will win it again in the end? The games in the meantime have been a joy to watch (thank you Virgin Media).

 

Absolutely, did you watch the NZ game? Every hit was a huge collision!

 

I was talkling to someone prior to the world cup and they couldnt see the point in the world cup, that the finalists were obvious etc. They were keen to keep a Tri Nations as those were the only real contenders. But just this first week has shown us how far some countries have come in terms of development which can only be a good thing. And hopefully, in the coming years more and more locally born players will saturate the sides rather than Aussies seemingly claiming residence everywhere and anywhere. For now however I do recognise the benefit that overseas players bring the likes of the USA and Italy et al.

 

Still, to get back to your point BSJ I have to say I am completely with you on this one - Quality, spirited, international rugby league every night, who cares who wins!

Such a shame the BBC or another free to air channel couldn't be bothered to show more interest. Just a highlights program during the week, even via the red button would do.

 

Maybe Premier is the way forward for us RL fans.

The best teams with the best players don't guarantee the best game and ultimatly following sport is about entertainment and enjoyment. The so called lesser teams have made this world cup so far for me.

I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.

You and Piggy are beginning to sound like an item. :O Anyway, just because some of you clever dikkies have got 'premier', doesn't mean sky is rubbish. The Indian Kabaddi on Sunday, for example. was very exciting - the beach volleyball from Sydney was tops as well. 8)

...and only £27 per month, whereas we have to put up with RL on Premier FOR FREE!

 

Even so, that didn't stop me driving to Hull KR last night for more live action - always better than the telly don't you think?

Not often you see Hull and Live in the same sentence. ;)
