Heh, what a run by Inglis just before.

While we've had an easy run since our first game, we've made the most out of it. We've been ironing creases and being ruthless. I like what I see.

Congratulations and farewell to one of the great forwards of his era, Petero Civoniceva. Great career, great man.

Vossy mentioned my son, Steven, playing in the 86 Wembley curtain raiser. Made my day Andrew, thank you so much.

I think the semi-finals should of been England v NZ at City of Manchester Stadium and Aus v Fiji at Elland Road.

 

What's the capacity of the Etihad?  20,000 lower than who saw the England game today?  

 

People would have stayed to watch the second game if either it wasn't over as a contest after 20 minutes, or England had won.  I stayed because I thought both teams deserved it and I'd watched every other game of the tournament either in person or on TV.

 

Aussies were clinical.  Hard to love but easy to admire.

Blimey - hadn't put 2 and 2 together.

Bless him
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.

I didn't hear that Terry cos I was listening to the BBC, but if Vossy knows about that amazing lad, it shows what a class act he is. Nice one.

Couldn't believe what I was hearing Mark. Vossy went into great detail about Steve's appearance at Wembley and the ensuing tragedy and his final comment was to the family to say 'Your son is not forgotten'. Class act indeed.

I'd love to contact him to send our thanks if anyone knows a way.

He has ruined the game and it will end up embarassing for RL. He still won't get a gig in the NRL

Was he the ref of the Boxing in Manchester tonight.

How good was the break Inglis made towards the end, shame he could not offload to the support.

Jarryd Hayne looks like a handy player.

He seems like a genuine League-loving bloke Terry. He is on twitter and often replies to messages there.

Thanks Scubby, he's been a breath of fresh air during this excellent World Cup. I've managed to contact him through FBook now but thanks very much for your help.

Was not just a quick comment from Vossy he went in to great detail and with emotion. Just confirms to me what a great bloke he is. Terry I am sure it meant far more to you than what you can describe when somebody mentions your son like that in a big game

Can i just say that Fiji's performance or lack of, for me, was the most disappointing thing in the whole of the world cup. It was embarrassing at times, and given their good performances and steady improvement throughout the world cup, it was deeply disappointing and ultimately led to the majority of the fans leaving early. At times they didn't even show any fight and for a team in the semi finals, i thought it was really poor. Australia didn't even have to play that well. It put a bit (more) of a downer after the first game and was a real anticlimax

I completely agree.  They put in a better effort against the Aussies at Langtree Park.
