To say that wasn't one of the best matches ever

I agree Mark....quality all over the place and McNamara justified in his dropping of Chase for Widdup.

Got to agree, one of the best, heartbreaking to concede with only 19 seconds on the clock. Widdop should have been in the starting line up from the begining for my money though. Hope this next game is just as good, being a Hornets fan I have a huge soft spot for the Bati.

The shot at the end of the game of James Graham with blood pouring from his head epitomised everything about the game and Rugby League in general.I know it's a cliche but Rugby League was the winner!

Totally absorbing, and for 79 1/2 minutes, emotionally right up there with Old Trafford 1987

Superb game I agree, but gotta concur with Riggy though, that the Kiwis v Samoa match at Warrington was even better!

Daily, my intense dislike of the Pinks, Rugby Yawnion, Manchester United, and far-right politics, grows ever larger, and will continue to do so forever more!

Question! What's the connection between Rugby League and Rugby Yawnion? Answer! There isn't one!

My girl-friend asked "If you had to choose between me and Swinton who would it be?" I replied "You know the answer to that one without even asking!"

I was that stunned that it was half-time in the second semi before I could watch. It was superb being at Wembley and it was so nearly a dream come true that next week at OT I'd be watching our boys rather than the Kiwis stick it to the Aussies. Gutted!
....and as for an advert for the game just remember Spelly that at least this one was on BBC so the TV audience will have been a lot more than for the other matches.

Would like to single out Sam Burgess - probably the best performance I've seen from a prop forward.  At the moment he's got the lot.


Rugby League - great game, shame about the administration.

Trying with every ounce of my being to disagree with you as is tradition. ....but I can't
Probably the perfect forward performance.

i think its a shame that the TV coverage has been so limited, with only the England games shown live and pretty limited highlights of the other games

Spot on Phil,he is without doubt one of the best currently.

Widdop was man of the match for me on Saturday.   And the best part of the Aussies v Fiji game was the final hooter !!!

If you've ever put '1/2' when you really wanted to put '½' instead, here's how to get the fraction you actually want.

 

Open a Word document and click on the 'Insert' tab and then 'symbol,' 'symbols' . And there you'll find all sorts of very handy goodies, including the common vulgar fractions you're after.

What I did long ago is copy, paste and save the fractions on a blank document for easy access as and when required.
