Sadly AFAIK neither U20's origin or Tonga v Samoa shown in UK due to it being on Foxtel ?

 

Sounds like it was a fantastic game !! Shame about the 'passionate spectators' at the close :huh:

Need a bit of passion. Less than a minute was lost. It was a great joyous celebration, quite different from hooligans invading the pitch to cause trouble.

So............ The first round of the ref season has been played & it's looking good for the World Cup  B) 

 

Wonder how many of those NRL players that played the 'injury card' for those game will suddenly be on their team lineups for Rnd 7 :rolleyes:

"Pommy Ref"? What is Ashley Klein?

 

He's an Aussie.

 

To be fair to Klein, I don't think NZ made enough of their possesion in the first half, and were the makers of their own downfall.

According to Premier Sports, they simply didn't have the rights to it. It's about the only game in Oz that they haven't got the rights to this year!!!

(Klein) one of six full-time officials employed by the Rugby Football League, has been released with immediate effect to rejoin his wife and two children, who set up home in Australia after attending the World Cup.

Klein, who was in charge of November's World Cup final between Australia and New Zealand, is following in the footsteps of another leading referee, Russell Smith, who quit Super League to continue his career Down Under in the 1990s.

Stuart Cummings, the RFL's match officials director, said: "Ashley has had a very difficult decision to make but has understandably decided to join his family in Australia. (2009)

Klein only took up refereeing after arriving in London from Australia, where he was a reserve-grade player with Parramatta, but he experienced a meteoric rise up the rankings and took charge of his first Super League match in 2003.

 

That was a quote from 2009.

 

Our loss is your gain!  :lol:

Just got back from the game yesterday. Was great to see Canberra Stadium sold out with so many Rugby League fans!

 

Was a good game, Kiwis certainly won the first half. Kangaroos just blew them apart with those tries all in 11 minutes. But that is what we are capable of.

 

Kiwis with additions look dangerous for the World Cup. Foran was great as captain.

 

Hopefully we can soon take the Kangaroos back to Sydney and get 40,000+ at SFS.
