Changing my opinion about the World Club Championship

Wednesday's SL round up is dire stuff. Anyone, like me, remember the summer
of 1995 when Sky showed full matches from Oz including State of Origin?
That was wonderful. These highlights are terrible.

I believed that our clubs would get ***ed by all but the poorest SH
teams. But not any more. From the highlights, the football looks like ours
did last season. For the first time I can remember, we're actually a season
in front of the SH in getting used to new laws. There's been nothing to
compare with Wigan/Saints or Salford/Wigan.

Sure Cas, Warrington, Oldham, Sheffield will leak points. But our top six,
Bulls, Saints, Salford, Wigan, London, and Leeds should be able to compete.
At least when on home turf.

The Lions should also have the best chance in years against a Roo pack
without Menzies and Larsen.
