This is excellent news; at a time when other departments are having their budgets cut, sport has been given an increase both for Olympics and attracting major events. The Rugby League World Cup is one of at least three events the UK government is providing funding for, one being a bid for a road cycling world championship and the other a bid for an equestrian championship.

Here is an information graphic which explains how the cuts will be made. Any organisation that can afford to make £50 million savings in senior managers redundant sounds like it is grossly overstaffed anyway.


So as far as sports are concerned, that will be no FI, they have already lost the rights to the Open and any competition that is held over several days overseas will be greatly at risk of not being covered.

Only watched the game now, thoroughly enjoyed it. What a fantastic result for England, one that caps off one of rugby league's finest years in recent memory. No-one has yet mentioned Ben Thaler's handling of the game but I felt he had another fine match and for me is the best referee in the world. It is also time to recognise maybe that McNamara perhaps does have what it take at international level. He has created a genuine England team culture and prepared England in the best possible manner. Team selections and tactics may not have always been spot on but he made the right calls for the decider in bringing in Smith and McGilvary, yes the Kiwis may not have had their strongest side, but England have just defeated the number one international nation in a game that mattered. Well done to everyone involved in bringing England up to the level of the two Southern Hemisphere giants.
