BBC have missed a trick here by not showing it- if you're in the area and haven't got a ticket get down there and pick up a walk-in. It will the match of the QFs

Looking forward to the fourth installment of my RL marathon this weekend. Hoping for a closer game than the other 3 but it will be good to see the Samoans in the flesh for the first time. Hope they win too...

Just been offered a ticket by a mate who can't go.

Despite the fact that I am still nursing a hangover from last night's game, I am going to go.

I must be mad.

Samoa have a great forward pack

 

Fiji have a very good forward pack

 

Most NZ fans will tell you Pita Godinet is their best Hooker / half and yet he struggles to get starts

 

That's because the Samoan campaign is ruled by village politics which is why their very best players mysteriously dropped off the landscape for them

 

That mentality ensures the worst NRL half in modern times Ben Roberts is the darling of the Samoan selectors 

 

If they get an NRL coach who can tell the Village Elders and the Chiefs of the Samoan Govt to butt out of their campaign then they will be worth watching

 

I'm wanting Fiji to do well

 

I also want Samoa to hit Aussie hard if they get through ( look for a Samoan Kangaroo Semi with the Samoans finishing the game with 11 players ).

Heart says I want Fiji - their supporters have been brilliant (particularly the guy who ran up & down in front of us with the flag after they scored at the KC last week).  Head says Samoa as I'd prefer them to stick it to the Aussies next week.  Hoping that Arriva Trains Wales don't let me down as I can't stick being in another queue for an hour wondering if I'm going to get there on time. Last installment of the marathon for me. The newbies I took to Scotland - USA are coming for their second / third installment of TGG. All I need now is for one of them to shout "gerrem onside!" and my world cup will be complete!

One Sims less won't help Fiji

 

However Samoa are stupid enough to play Pita Godinet from the bench so anythings possible with Ben Roberts.

 

Samoa know they won't be able to intimidate Fiji

 

It's going to be very interesting to see who wins the battle up front with Suimatangi and Mose Masoe my favorite props.

Oh dear it's this Commentator , he misses the point ....there won't be any appreciation of the physical conflict between these Pacific Warriors....never mind you can't have it all.......

 

Just hoping Shayne Hayne aint the Ref

 

Manumalealii is a good half for Samoa.......that ups their chances.

 

Hopefully the winner gets through with all their players for the next round
