Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

Farcical decision gives Wales the win. Still, they're hardly the amazing team they were made out to be in the build up and England put up a solid defence today but are a poor side at the moment.

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

England were great today, Owen Farrel is a fantastic prospect. We didn't deserve to win but I'm not complaining. Waaaaaaaales!

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

I thought we defended well but didn't look like getting many points on the board (until the very end). Farrell was clinical though, he's a real find. I'm not really sure where the side is going yet and obviously it's a big rebuilding/transitional phase for us at the moment, so i'm not too disheartened at that result.

The "Saviours of Northern Hemisphere rugby" aka "We'll smash them off the park" Wales losing to England yet again
I posted my comment just after halftime. Of course Italy were going to get mauled, they can't compete for 80 minutes. If they could, they would have beaten England last fortnight, rather than lose at the end.

Far from a farce, it was inconclusive to see if the ball was down or not, and no angle that I saw showed the ball being placed over the line.

With Wales facing Italy in Cardiff next up, it may well come down to a Wales/France game to decide the champions. All depends how the French handle Ireland and England in the next 2 fixtures.

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

What a try to win it for Wales! Watched it on and off, but the last 10 minutes were well dramatic, even if the rest looked like a typical Northern Hemisphere kickfest. The decision at the end was correct, it definitely wasn't clear enough to award a try, pity for England it was after full time, otherwise they probably would've scored off the scrum.

From the S15, the Australian teams are lucky they get to play each other twice so that they can actually win some games. Honestly, the Reds vs Waratahs game was one of the worst games of top level rugby I've ever seen, and I'm thankful I didn't see the Force vs ACT game. Both NZ derbies, on the other hand, were class, and thankfully the Highlanders delivered, thus winning me $20 off a mate who said they'd get done by at least two tries. Only one game was decided by more than 5 points, looks like it'll be a top year.

As for the league, who is this clown Adrian Proszenko who writes for the Sun Herald? I'm biased because I've supported Newcastle my whole life, but in the NRL preview, he said that the Knights are trying to 'buy a premiership'. What a load of rubbish.
They had 8 signings listed in their preview: 3 were former Knights returning (Buderus, Tahu, Snowden), two were from the local comps (Laurie the local league, and Wade the local union), Adam Cuthbertson is past his best, and nobody else wanted him and Alex McKinnon has played a handful of first grade games. Darius Boyd is the only high profile signing, and he's the only established rep player that Newcastle has ever signed. And yes, they signed Wayne Bennett, but who wouldn't sign him if they had the chance? He has good reasons for coming here. How is any of that trying to buy a premiership? All clubs recruit players, and they recruit a lot more than we have over this off season. The majority of our side are still Newcastle juniors. I honestly see them finishing no higher than 4th. We came 8th last year despite a horrific injury toll, so I think 5th/6th would be a likely finish.

tl;dr Adrian Proszenko is a clown

Ohhhh yes. I didn't know there were any others on here? Maybe I came too late and they'd already left.

you're not doing yourself any favours here. the only other newcastle fan on here is a muppet (hi ADAM) and quotes like this already put you on the wrong foot

Knights aren't trying to buy a premiership, but Snowden may have been a Newc junior but that means shit when he hasn't played there in ages, when he wasn't wanted by the club and left and became a 'superstar' elsewhere and when you guys paid a truckload to get him back, Laurie wasn't a Knights junior and was dumped by 2 other clubs which is why he was playing in a local newcastle comp. Boyd is a high profile signing. Cuthbertson isnt past his best, he's just garbage.

Yeah I didn't really think there was much point signing Cuthbertson, I'd prefer Richie to start. Laurie is only playing NSW Cup anyway. And it's not like we've made many high profile signings before in club history so a couple here won't hurt.

I exaggerated that quote a bit, but it was a pretty poor game. First game of the season or not, there was a truckload of dropped ball. At least it was close.
