    Whitehead I thought was offside in the lead up to the try

    No shorter than what you get at some England grounds and they still put up bombs and grubbers.

    Been a good effort from a young Kiwi team, but the lack of polish from the halves is pretty obvious.

    The NRL has been penalising those for years with a particular crackdown this year. Lazy and sloppy by the poms trying to get a quicker ptb.

    Put your foot on the ball, that's the rules

    Apparently John Elway would be happy with a pass that went soaring over the sideline

    Look at the crusty old myth sitting up there thinking "who else can I sign for a pie and a coke"

    Nice try. A bit more experience, time together and some players who can give stronger direction around the park and the Kiwi's have a strong nucleus to work with.

    It really was noticeable of who was from the NRL and who was from the ESL.
    Glad it has been cleaned up over here.
