Just have to comment on the World Cup matches in only the first week of the tournament and what quality entertainment they have been. There have been some amazing committed performances from the 'underdog' teams and what a welcome sight to see capacity crowds for most of the games. With another 3 weeks of excitement to come, what a way to keep the interest going during our own off-season. To be in the festival atmosphere at Spotland in a friendly crowd of 9000 on Monday evening, to witness the awesome and speedy Fijians against a tough and resolute Irish side, was a real treat. What a night!
I just hope that that the RFL are able to work on the success of the international tournament to make some sensible decisions to enable a sound future for our game at all levels.
