    1968 RL World Cup Final, Australia vs France.

    When I first started watching rugby league in the early 1970s, the BBC commentator was Eddie Waring. Although he had a notable record in the game, by then he had become a parody of himself. His commentaries, and unfortunately the game itself by association, were mocked by impressionists on prime time television. Keith Macklin was the anti Eddie Waring. His commentaries were intelligent and a joy to listen to. On BBC TV he presented other sports including the dark side but his rugby league commentaries were restricted to the radio. When ITV began to show rugby league he fronted the programmes.

    Pitch markings at Lamport Stadium

    You say that, but 3.5 metres is a couple of inches shorter than 10 feet, which I'm sure used to be the height of the bar, and 5.5 metres is a couple of inches wider than 6 yards. So have the posts got lower and wider? That's a rhetorical question as I don't really care. Is the beer served in English pints, American pints or in millilitres?

    Very good. Was that Keith Macklin's commentary?

    Valley Cougars forfeited their Challenge Cup tie didn't they? More glass house stone throwing.

    Under 19's European Championships

    Yes true. I hadn't looked at the make up of the teams. It was very entertaining though and England nearly won it.

    France win. That was a great fight back by England though. If only France could be as competitive at senior level.

    England looking the stronger team now. Score in the corner means the kick will level it at 26 all.
