Morning all. Currently in Devonport on the North shore in Auckland. I had a belting time watching the game on Queens Street in Auckland. The Kiwis fan certainly enjoyed the game and despise the Australians as much as I do. Shaun Johnson was simply awesome as was the game as a whole. Simply cannot wait for the Kiwis to tour the UK next year; just hope the RFL announce details and tickets soon and play the games in big stadia.
Nope, this matches the Australian approach of burying their head in the sand, there is no issue here.
They won, that is all that matters. Some people applaud that approach.
This really ######s me off about the RFL... why the hell are they not fighting back? Where is their moral courage and integrity to combat Australia making a mockery of this great sport? It feels to me like they are rolling over like a dog and allowing the Australians to tickle their belly... it stinks in my opinion and it is about time the rest of the International Community stood up to the Australians and show them they cannot get their own way all the time. I personally am sick of it and by the looks of it, I am not the only one.
Even a sub-literate poster who referred to Hall as "that Pommie <ahem> lady-part" agreed it was a try. So he actually has more class than some of the Aussie media.
I detest Australia with a passion. Whilst I have admire how ruthless they can be (see the Inglis try targetting an injured Josh Hodgson), I despise the way they go about their business both on and off the field, starting with Greg Bird and Tim Sheens. The article talking about admitting England to the NRL caps it off for me... ######s the lot of them!
As for our leaders, it is about time the RFL grew a set of cojones and started standing up to them. Absolutely sick of feeling walked all over (Graham was yesterday) by them and our leaders not having the moral courage, backbone or integrity to stand up to them.
