Like Daz, I enjoyed the event, I always do, I like international RL and love being a part of these tournaments.

There was a real buzz and atmosphere about the crowd, lots of families and kids wearing greens, oranges and yellows everywhere.

Jamaica gave it a real good go but were just outgunned by an Ireland team who looked impressive at times and less so at others.

Well if most of the 6,000 + enjoyed it as much as i did despite the scoreline, which was heavily added to in the last quarter, there will be some happy people, some of whom will not have been to a RL game before.

There were plenty of JAM and IRE shirts/scarves/flags etc and the majority stayed behind after to applaud all the players who all took time to thanks the crowd, it doesn't matter how many are there it's what kind of impression these games leave on people who do go.

Also Ronan Michael was pretty upbeat despite not playing and is hopeful of being included in the next game, but then again this kid is always upbeat he's a cracking lad!

Well done Ireland and Well done Jamaica for giving it everything and adding to a very entertaining afternoon.

What a shame he didn't get any minutes against Jamaica. Especially that last 10 mins when they were comfortable. Hopefully he gets a few minutes in against the Kiwis when they are losing anyway. Would mean the world to him and his family.

Yep i was surprised but he was 18th man so not much chance, to be fair if he was disappointed he hid it well but also told me what a fantastic experience it all has been so far and that he is going to enjoy every minute of it.

Would love to see him get world cup game time.

On side note i looked at the sports pages of The Voice newspaper today when i was in the Supermarket and no mention in this months edition of the Jamaican Rugby League team playing in the world cup, and for those who don't know The Voice is a monthly newspaper for the Afro-Caribbean community of the GB. Very disappointing there was no mention of the Jamaican Rugby League team.

The Irish news and the Irish post which are weekly newspapers for the Irish communities living in GB have given the world cup and the Irish team column inches, and i know this as i buy them weekly because of my Irish heritage and having relations living in Ireland. just to see what's going on there.

Isn't that where the RLWC organisers and Jamaica RL have to give them something to print?

If The Voice aren't aware then they need to be made aware.

RL sadly isn't on the national conscience anymore.

I thought the Jamaica RL team announced a partnership with The Voice a couple of years ago.

Yes there was. There is also a report online:

JAMAICA’S RUGBY League World Cup campaign got off to a difficult start with a 48-2 defeat to Ireland at Headingley, the home of Leeds Rhinos.

The Reggae Warriors, who are making their World Cup debut, started brightly and nearly took the lead when Kieran Rush’s kick just evaded the on-rushing Jacob Ogden.

But from that point onwards, Ireland took control, with Super League stars Louis Senior and George King scoring tries that highlighted the differences in flair and physicality between the two teams.
