  1. Second game golden point. Paradise.
  2. A bit more “union will be great in the future” if…
  3. Great first game here at Suncorp. Still heaps of rain but the stadium is 3/4s full already.
  4. I’m sure they don’t want to rock the boat. Disappointing but expected.
  5. Very damp in Brisbane atm - days of straight rain. Luckily lots of seats pre-sold for Magic Round. Saturday night Penrith v Melbourne should still be a full stadium (sold out despite the predicted weather) and hopefully the best game of the year (though lots to play for for both sides). A little worried about the effect of the weather on the quality of the contest.
  6. The same problem exists. Super League is not of the same week to week intensity as the NRL. When you add in the effect of Origin, Australia gets a turbo powered preparation every time.
  7. The NRL fail to understand that rugby league is not a domestic only product like the AFL. They are yet to get the balance right with international football still.
  8. If anyone remains in doubt, my position is that the tournament has always been one of the preeminent occasions in world rugby league, but that it is very sad to see it continue to become less important almost year on year. The RFL has been asleep at the wheel (as per).
  9. Obviously. That's my point. I'm the one here who defends the history of the tournament. Whichever way you cut it, going from a tournament that sells out, inter alia, the Final to being 2/3rds full at Wembley (at best) is very sad. It needs to be fixed ASAP.
  10. Belief means atmosphere. It will all be needed.
