3 games down in the WCC and 3 AUS SL wins so far! What's worse is that two
of our top teams have lost to teams in the lower part of the AUS SL. It
might come down to Wigan and Bradford to retrieve the position, lets hope
they are both up to it, otherwise we might see an AUS SL clean sweep :((.

I think London put up a good effort, after-all they are the only ones with
a reasonable excuse, they were playing the TOP AUS SL side and could also
lay some claim to jet-lag.

Come on all u ESL teams rasie your games and spare our blushes!!!

Auckland aren't a rubbish side though are they...they've had problems
off field like Wigan this season and they showed when the pressure's
off they can hand out a good hiding. Wigan got 60-odd against Saints
the other week..

Thought London did quite well but was surprised by Leeds...

Why have all three aussie winners stopped at 42? :-)

Seriously,
(bear in mind I haven't seen any of the games - only read the reports)
No one expected London to do as well as they apparently did against
Brisbane,
Saints have slipped for weeks now and auckland have been regaining their
game. Leeds are a big disappointment.... but haven't they been that way
recent seasons... fine until it comes to  the crunch, then losing the
biggies.

PSG will probably get walloped (expected) as will Warrington. Wigan and
Bradford and Salford should restore some pride. I think the British teams
were always going into this comp fearfull but now they've started they'll
probably get better results. (that's my wish anyway).

I'm relying on Salford - a mate of mine hear's from Adelaide.... he's
getting some stick about the cricket I don't want back about Rugby!!!

Dennis Betts has still got it, eh? He's one English success story.

Perhaps we are close to finding the question the answer to which is 42, You
know, the ultimate question of life, The Universe, Everything :-)

Well, with only Bulls and Wigan left, it's looking ultra-grim for the
Super League revolution that we keep hearing about. All the talk that we
heard from coaches and players has rapidly evaporated as the harsh reality
of just how awful our players really are is coming home to roost.

We desperately need something on Monday if the competition isn't going to
become something of an embarrasment. Crowds of 3000-3500 for todays 3
games in Europe don't auger well, and they haven't exactly been packing
the terraces down in Oz either - these crowds will go even lower once we
get to the second and third rounds of matches unless we get some grain of
hope of at least one or two victories.

Come on you Bulls!
And (I never thought I'd say this) Come on Wigan!
