It looks like the BBC have picked up the option for this match as well as England/France. B) 

 

I'll be a bit miffed if it quietly drops off the BBC2 schedules over the next few days.

I fear it might.

Yes I got the impression after the match at St Helens that the Fijians were a little too matey with the Ockers.

 

I think the Samoans will look to duff them up a bit more and I think that would be a cracking semi final with probably 55,000+ people shouting for Samoa. It would be great to see the likes of Soliola and the Samoan full back (Millard is it?) at Wembley.

 

I also think it might do quite a bit for the sport in the country - I seem to recall there was a thread about the issues they face, particularly with the President being more of an RU type.

Game of the quarters this, think Fiji will just shade it by about 6. Really looking forward to it.

Hopefully Samoa will win as I think theyll have a better crack at the aussies and make it a good game at wembley.

If they have enough players left to make up a team due to suspensions!-

I would imagine that they will appeal the trip. Who the hell has been banned for a trip in the last 20 years?

Got my tickets in the post today: can't wait.

I was sure that I would be supporting Samoa, but after last nights game I don't know. Hopefully it will be a hard close game with big hits and no cheap, shots. Fiji to win on golden point.

Ah ok - so the rules are switching to golden point in the knock-out stages?
Any extra time or simply golden point?

Well I'm guessing so. Don't know about extra time but definitely no replay. I don't really think it will go down to a golden point, but how exciting would it be if it did?

Should be a cracker, although it needs a tolerant (i.e. not pedantic) referee.

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.

Original removed as too flippant 

 

.....but the BBC not showing this is folly on their part. Anyway Vossy will be doing a good job of calling the game on Premier Sports
