    It's a rare chance to be at WIN stadium and watch a game where BOTH teams are semi final regulars

    Not this game but I will be at ANZ next weekend for the double header.
    Can't wait, should be a great event.

    I believe the game was more like NSW Cup standard. Guys like Kelly, Minichello and Paea are past their prime and there was a lot of dropped ball.

    It was great fun.

    The Hull fans really brought some noise. WIN Stadium has probably never seen anything like that before

    Kelly is only 26 and looking for a move back to the NRL next year.

    Well we see that in any game where there's a bit sweat on the ball. Perhaps someone can confirm the humidity reports.

    I found the same fun atmosphere at games in the UK. Different type of crowd that's for sure.

    I also saw a player squirt half a drink container of his drink on the ball before kicking off after a try.

    That'll do it. Neat trick, but surely the RL equivalent of ball tampering?

    That was purposely done to make the player feel like he was home, soaked in rain water with a waterlogged ball. ( It doesn't just rain in England, its hisses down )
