(Billy) Slater, storming marvel

I was going to ask how the World Club Challenge was received - if at all - in Melbourne and am glad to have been alerted to this by Andy Wilson. It is a marvellously written piece with one or two forgivable inaccuracies.

And so much better than that Times article referenced on these pages a couple of weeks ago which began with the allusion to cloth caps and whippets...

It's good to see that the Aussies think the "old fashioned" Carnegie Stand design goes back to the 19th Century...!

Liked the comment that RL survives/thrives on being in a constant state of crisis!

Melbourne cops a lot of stick but it is a true sports loving city with a cracking newspaper like the Age. This is the kind of article you can expect; penned by a decent writer who doesn't really get rugby league but has the class to write about it with respect. Actually I'm not giving the bloke credit - he "gets" the game better than any number rah journos who have the head start of being "rugby" experts.

Nice to see a bit of imaginative writing! Great article

It's usually reserved for Wilkinson.

Small gripe... but when is a team 'it' and not 'they'?

When the team is a singular thing and the players within it the plural?
