Or is anybody else at that point when they literally cannot get enough of this World Cup.

I was looking forward to it but, Christ, this has exceeded all my expectations so far - I really hope and pray it carries on in this vein and the world's press and public take note.

chuffing proud of our great game right now

Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

Its been absolutely fantastic so far, all games are producing a lot of great talking points for the right reasons. Can't wait for tomorrow nights game.


USA and Cooke Islands have a lot to live up to tomorrow.

Me too me too ! It's been brill, just wish there was more on the beeb, why no highlights ? Mrs told me off for not talking to her as I walked round he house listening to the radio of the tonga / Scotland game - those oys should be soo proud, what a game, ultra hard - but fair. Can't wait for the next game and then the next !

Proves the value of international RL. Need a paid pro int. board with a rolling four year programme. However, successful events like this will move things on no end.

Final point, this format is just brill brill brill.

Proud to be a Trieziest !

6 games in and every match has been great. Hope the rest of the World Cup, especially the games on the Beeb, is the same.

No other sport delivers on such a regular basis like Rugby League!

It's been absolutely brilliant and shows exactly why we need a strong and vibrant international game.

If the people that run our game, here and down under, cannot now realise that International rugby is the way forward then nothing will. Imagine how great it would be to see all the so called 'Tier 2' nations playing each other on a regular basis?!.. and with similar quality in the squads. Would do wonders.

It's taken over my life. Happily I am managing to get some proper work done, though I have to admit it's been tricky. Today I just want to wander round the centre of Bristol shouting at random strangers that there's a match on tonight and they shouldn't miss it! Thankfully I have lots of work to do to stop this deranged spectacle from happening… phew!

For a newbie to the game I'm currently daydreaming about if I can in fact leave work early, park up, get a ticket on the gate. Tonight. In Bristol. For USA versus the Cook Islands...

Yeah, it's very good indeed!

I'm starting to feel like a little kid at Easter who's eaten too much chocolate at one sitting. Except there are still dozens of eggs to go through.


I can't wait to make my first game on Saturday, feels like I've been waiting a lifetime while everyone else has all the fun.

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.

my fiancee has enjoyed RL since I introduced her to the sport, but she has now become a little obsessed. She ranks the NZ v Samoa as her favourite sporting experience of her life.


She was also delighted about last night's match and result and is spending more time tweeting, retweeting and reading about it than me!

Yep - loving it, it's all coming along much better than I anticipated....although my attendance is going to be limited I'm trying to work out which is the best game for me to get to......reckon the Wembley double header semi-final day maybe the best option

Sorry to interrupt, but I am looking for the TRL forums. Everything looks familiar but with this positivity I am sure I have come to the wrong place...?



If somebody could point me in the right direction I will be on my way.....

The last government were convinced that we were there to do their bidding. They wasted vast quantities of our money in order to spy on us, intimidate us and needlessly over regulate us, whilst gold plating their own pensions and expenses. Their behind the scenes encouragement of, and turning a blind eye to, the kettling and harrassment tactics of the Police are a shameful episode in our history which we need to remember and address urgently. - Haloman
