Just seen some good luck messages to EnglandRL from the official RFU tweet.

<cross code forum>

Typical of the V**** #### to steal our thunder.

Although that does mean you follow the RFU and therefore we can never be friends.

Darren Lockyer trending in the UK.

Yet again he achieves in a moment what England players never manage in a career.

Just read the thread about picketing the DT on the 1st December. Does anyone know if there is a hashtag being used for this so I can tweet my support and follow events?

Rugby League World Cup trending in Ireland!

Would be fantastic if Thomond Park got anywhere near filled, but that will be a huge, huge task. I'll be there hopefully.

Thormond Park is an approximate 5 hour drive from my house. Needs must!

The main reason it trended is because of the number of news feeds linking to a press release on a website. This is not in itself a bad thing and shows how much exposure a tournament like this can get.

In tomorrow's League Express we'll be printing Twitter hashtags alongside the Super League fixtures.

We've tried to keep the tags as short and simple as possible.

The club abbreviations are as follows:

Bradford - bra

Castleford - cas

Catalan - cat

Huddersfield - hud

Hull FC - hfc

Hull KR - hkr

Leeds - lee

London - lon

Salford - sal

St Helens - sth

Wakefied - wak

Warrington - war

Widnes - wid

Wigan - wig

To create a match hashtag we merge the abbreviations of the competing teams together. The home team always goes first, except for cup games taking place at neutral venues, where the teams are ordered alphabetically.

Here are the hashtags for next week's fixtures:

Widnes v Wakefield - #widwak

Leeds v Hull KR - #leehkr

London v St Helens - #lonsth

Salford v Castleford - #salcas

Bradford v Catalan - #bracat

Hull FC v Warrington - #hfcwar

Wigan v Huddersfield - #wighud

Hashtags should be added to the end of any Tweet which refers to a match (before, during or after). It doesn't matter if you use upper or lower case letters, as long as the characters themselves are the same.

Yes, unfortunately there will be a few dodgy ones!

We considered using 'bfd' for Bradford, 'lds' for Leeds and a couple of others than sounded a little more familiar, but we thought it'd be best to stick to the formula of taking the first three letters from each club (except for the Hull clubs for obvious reasons)

Easier to remember this way.

Well I think the simplicity is good but the obvious problem is that it doesn't make it obvious that it's about RL. So I'll be adding the #rugbyleague tag in addition to these ones.

If you can fit both in then great. I'll be doing the same if I have room.

I often click on trending hashtags out of curiosity created precisely because it's not obvious what it's about. Hopefully others will do the same if/when a 'matchtag' trends.

Glad you're going with this. I like the hashtags and do feel like the shorter the better. I just hope you've been in touch with the RFL about this, after the whole Super League Grand Final fiasco.

Should guarantee some pretty decent discussion during games.
