Do you realise that the best ESL performances have come from the least
fancied teams (London, Paris, Cas (of all things))?

I don't think any aussie side so far is unbeatable, although I havn't seen
the Canberra game yet. I got hold of the Leeds-Cowboys game off a
satellite feed, and it looked like the loiners lost concentration rather
than anything else.

I wonder if "the gap" is literally in the mind.

Tell you summat.

I've not seen much imagination from the Aussies on 6th tackle plays
inside the last 10...an awful lot of their tries have come from
switches further out which granted has been enough.

Canterbury were awful at it as were Adelaide (not that it mattered)

--We don't have unlimited interchange in Britain anyway...even though I
--thought the laws were supposed to be identical...
Yes, the sooner they make the laws the same, the better. None of this
Country rules/International rules.

--No I don't think London were really lucky either. If Edwards had
--stayed on they might have been in trouble.
I agree, and from the vision of the game, so does Edwards.

But Edwards probably wouldn't have made a difference to Sailor's
break-try, and Carroll's, either. Brisbane would have still prevailed, but
not as much between them....
