Just to add onto the RLWC in the media theme, Offiah was on Simon Mayo's Drivetime last night. I was home by the time it was on but I intend to listen again on iplayer, I presume it was the usual 5 minute slot around 6.45pm.

Shame South Africa didn't make it, this would have been a perfect opportunity to leverage their star centre Hertz Van Rental.

Sorry.

I came off the motorway because of the jam to use the A58, and it was on the roundabout

Nice to see the two sponsors announced so far are new to the game, certainly in this country.

Would be nice if we manage to get some long term partners out of this WC.
