Bourbon Rat is traveling from Melbourne to Sydney for this big game.

In the UK it's Sky Sports that will broadcast it.
In Australia it's the Nine Network that has it.
Here's who's showing it elsewhere in the world:

Asia (excluding Japan) - Setanta Asia 
Africa - Setanta/Fox 
Pacific Islands - Fiji TV 
Canada - Rogers 
France - BeInsport 

Middle East - OSN
USA - Fox


Great that the tournament is being held Down Under - that's well overdue. UK based Wigan fans will be gutted that it was this year that the Aussies decided to stage the match.

Still it'll enhance the standing of the fixture as long as it's a good competitive game.

I've just placed £20 on total match points to be under 42 points. Even odds.


Fingers crossed.

Just seen the result. Not what Wigan fans wanted. Hope you had a good time BR despite the result. Anyone saw the game who can sum it up or or give us some insight. I'm in Lancashire today. Had my passport stamped!

It was a good game,Wigan took too long to get into the match,but were not helped by being continually penalised in the first half though the Aussie refs tried to even things up in the second. The game was all but gone by that time and Wigan`s fight back was nulled by conceding two soft late tries. Still,it was a good work out for both clubs and a good way for us to see the new season in.
