Canterbury Bulldogs 18 - 22 Wigan Warriors

22 - 0 with 14 minutes left until Canterbury started plonking a few over
the line. Haven't seen the game yet so can't speak for the quality of
either side.

Now we Bradford need to put a winning margin of more than 4 points on
Penrith. Piece of piss.

Not relevant to the post, but why are some of these messages prefixed with
'spoiler'?

Because not everyone has seen the game and some of those people may wish
to see the tape before knowing the final score. For the Cantervury v
Wigan game this is particularly relevant because we got the live feed on
TV in the UK but it went out on delayed broadcast in Australia. I
understand a number of radio stations were prevented from calling the
game live for the same reason.

Having 'spoiler' in the subject header indicates that the thread contains
the score and details of the game.

Plain good manners to do it IMO, I just wish it was more prevelant.
