Hi GLD

Are you supporting England or Ireland? The latter have a Fev player whilst the former don't. ;)

Kiwis win 48-0,had two perfectly good tries disallowed by Shane Hayne (surprise,surprise),but Andrew Voss and Co still aren`t happy. They did make a few cock ups,but who doesn`t in only their second game? Isaac Luke ran Les Froggies ragged,then some clown gave the man of the match to Shaun Johnson. Maybe his coca cola bottom glasses couldn`t tell the difference between a 7 and a 9?! Go the Kiwis.

England naturally.

However it's great to see Liam Finn not only play for but captain Ireland. He is our club captain and it's great credit to him that he's the captain of a gathering of international Irishmen.

There's lots of quotes on the interwebbykin about failure.

 

I like this one:

 

“Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”

--- Winston Churchill

 

That works as long as you're not rumbled.

Fiji v Samoa on paper is the closest call.

It should be a very physical and speedy contest.

Enjoy the game TM

Cheers G - yeah, it should be a good 'un. Favouring the Samoans slightly because my wife actually met some of them yesterday. She won a competition in the local paper organised by Getthelabel.com to have afternoon tea with some of the Samoan squad, and yesterday she went to the Village Hotel where they're based here in Warrington, and had tea and cakes with about 8 of the squad. Because of work I couldn't make it, so I'm more than a little jealous of her!!!

 

They were a very nice bunch of lads by all accounts, and they had a very good appetite. Apprently they've got through over a 1000 chicken legs during their stay at the hotel. Sia Soliola wasn't there at first, and my wife had hoped to meet him. Apparently he was in his room playing Fifa 14 on the Xbox!!! When the lads had finished, they went off and got Sia to come down and she got to meet him. She got loads of photos and they all signed one of those Try/No Try cards they hand out at the games.

 

Theres a pic on the Getthelabel.com twitter page:-

How great is that?!!!!

Congratulations to her and I can see why you're likely to favour them now.

It looks like they are staying in a nice place.

Looking forward to going down to Wembley on Saturday. The England NZ game could be a classic. Hopefully the Fijians can put up a good performance against the Aussies. Uate certainly looked impressive in the game against the Samoans yesterday.

 

I bet Petero Civoniceva will be looking forward to his retirement. We noticed yesterday that he had plenty of time on the field - I bet he hasn't played as many minutes for years!!!

Cheers RF. Never been since they rebuilt it - the 1999 CC Final was my last trip. I have been booked to go down on 2 occasions since, but the first time the trains went all to pot, and 2nd time my wife was in hospital having a cyst removed. Hopefully I'll make it on Saturday!!!
