it might also mean that Alibert is being lined up for the Final.

 

 

lets hope so


Rugby Union the only game in the world were the spectators handle the ball more than the players.

Won't Australia not refuse to play in a final unless Tony Archer is ref?

What has been good about the World Cup is that we haven't had this ref rubbish yet.

Think Silverwood has done well. Perenara is the only one who I think has been poor. He was very weak in Perpignan and has been very picky in other matches, seemingly wanting a million mile an hour PTBs, which actually ruins the match for me.

Seeing i was brought up on Wayne Bennett and belief and shown how to believe and never lose faith, plus the fact Rick Stone is a Bennett boy, i am trusting my instincts in what i have learned and our boys above.

(rugby league Gods)

I am going for Fiji by 14.

Nearly forgot, good luck both teams, and Petro, you are a legend and a Bronze statue out the Front of Suncorp Brisbane will be top of my list of causes.

Thank you.

Rich will do a professional job. He's been around long enough to know exactly what he's doing and for those who have never picked up a whistle/flag in anger, he is a great example of how to do the job. Keeps the games flowing, has a good sense of humour that helps diffuse situations and doesn't believe his own hype.

 

He's more than capable of doing the final should England not get there. If we do, then unfortunately we'll end up with Perenara rather than Thierry, and we know what impact that will have.

If we do make it past NZ, lets hope Perenara doesn't get the final. I'd rather an Aussie than him.

Assorted predictions:

First set of six for Australia, penalty on the 4th tackle for 'interference'.

Silverwood will lose his voice after about ten minutes.

On every occasion the ball goes to ground with Australia in possession, we'll hear a shrill blast of Silverwood's whistle as he awards them a penalty for a ball steal.

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.

When will it end................

Why cant there be a really neutral Ref who is professional and not looking for a job in the NRL or intimidated by the Convicts?

Definitely staying for this one. Hope for a decent showing from Fiji really, can't hope for much more really. Looking forward to the game all the same.

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

I thought Koroibete was nothing short of sensational against Samoa. If he along with Uate can get some decent ball then they could get a couple of tries and trouble the scoreboard.

Nothing would excite Rugby league fans more than for Fiji to go in at half time within striking distance of Australia , Akin to what we saw V England.

 

That for me would confirm that Fiji are on the way to being Team four long term. 

 

They really should have had Jared Hayne at stand off , that would have given them an outsiders chance of a shocking upset ( finishing within two tries of Aussie ).

 

He's that good , when Haynes in the mood he's the best player there is.
