  1. Is this entire match just dependent on SBW appearing? Wouldn't he be with the Samoan squad?
  2. In response to dropping to Number 2 in the World Ranking, Mal says: https://www.smh.com.au/sport/nrl/re...s-drop-to-jolt-kangaroos-20191119-p53c2s.html "We’ve got opportunities to play four or five Tests next year, we’ll see how we go.” The Australians are scheduled to embark on a Kangaroo tour of Europe next season that includes three Tests against England and a clash with New Zealand. There will be a number of lead-up games as well, potentially including a clash with France. Meninga said he was looking forward to Australia playing more matches in the future but was mindful of the demands on his players. “We’ve got Origin, so we have to be careful about the workload,” he said. “A lot of the players in the international side have played through the finals as well. That’s not to say the other nations don’t, but we have got three games of Origin too, so that adds to the workload. “We don’t get an opportunity to play together often. We’d like to play more games but, in fairness to the players, we’re playing the right amount of games at the moment. “We’ve got the Kangaroo tour . . . that’s good for us going into a World Cup. That will give us a bit more continuity and get some combinations going." ~~~~~~~~ Dear Mal, You decide how many opportunities you get to play Tests. The players who don't play Origin, also play NRL/Super League matches. It's not as if they don't do anything. Oh and if players are too tired, play someone else. I don't think we are ever going to see Australia play more than 4 or 5 Test maximum a year. They don't care enough.
  3. Samoa v NZ at the 2013 RLWC. Andrew Voss commentary, and the crowd make it something special. Plus that SBW moment.
  4. Imagine knocking a nation like PNG. There will be about 12,000 - there was only a few thousand left on sale.
  5. This is like, 2008 World Cup level of awful. Australia will sweep next year's Tour.
  6. How much damage has this done to England? How backwards have you done this year?
  7. Why would you put a bomb up to RTS of all people? What was that kick?
  8. Man, why do these two teams bring out the most boring type of football
  9. Christchurch has never really delivered an amazing crowd. Only nudged over 10,000 back at the 2017 RLWC.
  10. Looking like a sub 10,000 crowd again. Who could have possibly predicted this Tour would lose a boatload of money?
  11. Fiji win the Oceanic Shield, and are promoted to the Oceanic Cup for 2020 joining Tonga and New Zealand.
  12. This is by far the best quality and standard two Pacific teams in a good while (leaving aside Tonga). They are both playing really well.
  13. This really should have been played in PNG, or at least Fiji. There is about 500 people there watching
  14. Well, hopefully London isn't a um dead rubber by the time it rolls around
