This. At least two of them were head shots which could of ended careers.


It's this type of opinion that is softening the game up. Shoulder hits and big shots are fantastic, if illegal to the head send them off, but most people enjoy the Biff!

Exactly, is this the image we want to portray of rugby league to potential supporters and parents of junior players.

They're thugs when they play for the opposition , heroes when they are wearing your club Jersey and thump someone who deserves it

 

My favorite Forward was Morely.

 

Didn't like him much playing the kiwis or the Warriors but apart from the stupid stuff these guys  have you on the edge of your seat.

 

That's rugby League football.

 

Living life on the edge of your seat with a chance of falling off.......

I've got my girl swimming in the NZ nationals today ( a kids version for ten year olds ) so the Nerves are through the roof , the game means very little this weekend , it's a really nice space to be in .....the first time in me life I'm not winding up over a Kiwis game......it's like....ah it will be nice if we win !!! outrageous but there it is....blood is thicker than water.

 

I'm excited about the game don't get me wrong , but I'm in a win win here......I'm a huge England fan so if they win I'll recover quickly with the final for my then to be adopted England team to Win next week.

 

If the Kiwis Win I'll go nuts !

 

We all just need to see both teams play at their very best ,  that being the case no one can predict the eventual outcome , both teams are magnificent.

 

GO THE KIWIS !!!

I'll be cheering anyone wearing white tomorrow (including Fiji) -- if that fails on both fronts, then I will of course be cheering anyone NOT wearing green in the final.

This is a nightmare for me as I don't finish work until around 2pm and I won't be back home until 14.30-15.00 so i'll miss the whole live match on the bbc, does anybody now if the match will be replayed in its entirety on the red button or something? It's going to be hard work trying to avoid any updates on the radio.

Do you not have a DVR of any type?

Iplayer will have it a couple of hours after the game I'd assume. Premier will replay it too if you have that.

Don't have anything like sky plus or premier sports, the iplayer sounds like the best bet but I've to visions of seeing the result when I hunt it out on the BBC's sport page. I can't even listen to it on the radio as the work vans don't have 5live sports-extra. F-ing nightmare!

So it's the day of the match and it's prediction time, although I picked the kiwis to lift the rlwc2013 trophy and think when they've got their strongest team on the pitch they are the best RL nation on the planet i'd much rather face NZ than the Aussies because they(NZ) play a much more expansive game, off loads and throwing the ball around which can result in more errors compared to the more methodical and percentage style of game played by the Aussies who wear us(England) down before killing us with flashes of brilliance before halftime and just after halftime. I'll go for England winning in a brutal and close match with no more than 2-6 points between us, I have a feeling that goal kicking will be vital for both teams.

You don't sound too good. Are you sure you're feeling ok? I think you maybe coming down with something. I recommend a day of full rest. Phone in sick and then wrap yourself up warm on the sofa, watching a film or MAYBE SOME SPORT OF SOME DESCRIPTION (wink, wink) and you hopefully will feel better by mid afternoon.

Trust me, I'm (not) a doctor!

Options:

- Live video feed on the BBC website (if your work environment will allow)

- BBC iPlayer replay of whole BBC programme ... but you'd probably have to wait until up to 24 hours after the match as it's variable how much time passes before these things make it to the iPlayer.

- Do you have a TV recorder of some description!
