    World Cup my arse, it's more like a Claytons exhibition holiday tournament. Scotland got into the spirit literally.
    Wake me up when it's over!!!

    Wayne doing the hard yards for us and testing our players in new positions because Mary won't.

    Showed us Hunt's ability at 9, maybe Widdop will be another revelation?

    Geez I hope Mary's on holidays somewhere without a TV. If sees this we're likely to have Hunt in the 9, Widdop in the 1 with Nicholls and Jack DeBelin as the halves.

    I have to say the atmosphere at this Tonga vs NZ game is better than State of Origin! The crowd is going nuts! Great to see.

    I would like to officially change my stance on World Cup Rugby League. Tonga vs New Zealand was one of the best games of footy I have ever watched. Absolute Cracker! The atmosphere in the crowd was the best Ive seen. What a game!

    Tonga just started playing footy and were basically too hard to handle as a result.
    How fricken awesome was the atmosphere generated by the crowd. Great game.

    Just have a look at the work Australia is doing with the development of Rugby League in our region and compare that to what the ESL are doing. England, Ireland, France, Italy etc. are all going backwards while the likes of Tonga, Samoa and others in the South Pacific are on fire.
