Blimey. Look at it what it means.

Gutting for England but what a moment for PNG.

Such a good result for the country with the worst domestic and sexual violence in the world.

Is Elsie Albert related to Stanton and Wellington? She certainly plays the game in a similar style.

I'd guess not, because they're from the Southern Highlands (Mendi) and she started playing last year at university in Rabaul, New Britain.

Just done a bit of Googling, and she used to be a boxer. Now studying plant and insect science at university. Whatever, she hits hard!

Just seen the highlights and it looked fantastic. Great win for PNG, to whom it clearly means a lot and commiserations to the England ladies.

PNG is on the move and our game can be at the heart of it. We can be so happy and so proud to have seen the Ordhids get this far. A glorious day for our game.

Predictions for the future -

Crusaders RL to get a franchise for 2012 onwards -WRONG

Widnes Vikings also to get a franchise - RIGHT

Crusaders RL to do the double over Widnes and finish five places ahead of them -WRONG

Widnes Vikings NOT to dominate rugby league in years to come! STILL TO COME

I promise to pay �10 to the charity of Bomb Jacks choice if Widnes Millionaires finish above the battling underdogs Crusaders RL. I OWE A TENNER!

If you are a GB fan watch the game on the BBC Iplayer, we all need a bit of cheering up and seeing the reactions of the PNG Orchids at the final whistle is heartwarming.

Amazing display by the Orchids who incredibly only played their first match two years ago! England women have now played the Orchids three times in the last two years and all games have been competitive

World Cup 2017 England 36 PNG 8,               1st Test 2019 PNG 10 England 24       2nd Test PNG 20 England 16

This is the basis of a genuine international rivalry, it would be brilliant if we could develop it further. My preference would be to play a double header before one of the Ashes tests, perhaps the one at Elland Road for say the Daihatsu Shield. I choose Daihatsu (but it could be others) because there is a natural fit between the toughness of the vehicles and how hard the Orchids hit, with the sponsor covering the cost of bringing PNG over. This game would also have the advantage of convincing fans that it would be worthwhile to buy tickets for the Women's World Cup, which otherwise is going to be a tough sell.
