no magilvery had the ball knocked out of his hand by a tongan player if he hadn't hed have raced all the way to the line and scored the try so it made that even when he gave a knock on by the tongan but a very good game of rugby league well done tonga. but the last 10 minutes by tonga was brilliant after saying that for 70 minutes England was superb nothing could get past our defence. but if we don't buck up only who knows what the ossies will do to us next saturday

Sorry guys, I had to laugh, being from the US, I felt like I was reading a commentary on the Quidditch game from Harry Potter. No offense of course.

thanks ye all for your comments especially the guy from the usa whod never even heard of rugby league.however weve a job to do on Saturday and as long as we respect the ball weve every chance but if we don't weve no chance. just starting to get used to my defibrillator but so far ive felt nothing as regards its functioning my heart must be working well.the only thing I cant get used to not being able to drive my car as I feel so good now I think its unfair I feel as though ive been disqualified for drink driving which I don't do regards steve

thats a girl Steve, theres even a picture :)

Your mob are a pretty long shot for the World Cup but I guess you have a punchers chance. Will be a good test for your ICD if England do manage to get over the line.

Good Luck.

I am an Aussie, but secretly I am an All Blacks supporter, I think it has something to do with the haka.

Now if I could, I would move to New Zealand tomorrow, Kiwi Land. I know this has nothing to do with Rugby League, but with the Country, the scenery but more importantly the people, if I could, here I come. The video below may just give an example of why this is the country I think we could all aspire to.

You just get a glimpse of this, but keep an eye out for the cat on the lead with the bullet proof vest on. I just love the Kiwi attitude.

The closest I've come to rugby or cricket was the passages in The Hitchhiker's Guide in which Arthur Dent and his friend Ford Prefect use a time travelling chesterfield sofa, that drops them off in various locations throughout the space – time continuum, including Lord's Cricket Ground.

Oh I hear you Stacey, I am the same. In Australia Rugby is played more in the North Eastern States, NSW/QUEENSLAND. Recently we have had a team and they did really well in the competition. However it is still a bit of a mystery to me too, but it is good watching those big men play. dancee dancee

Helen I think they play by passing the ball backwards :duh: the only way they get to their own goal is by running with it, while 100 kg giant men who are full of muscles and strength attempt to catch them and throw them to the ground. lmao4dx And all this is done without protection or padding.

Which is why the injuries in rugby are less disastrous than those in American football. Protection and padding gives the player a false sense of invincibility that leads him to attempt suicidal maneuvers.
