Visa Cup - Round 1 Results

Leigh,
Could you kindly give us a run down on who qualifies for the finals of the
Visa Cup.  My previous understanding was the teams were all in one pool and
the top four from Europe and Australasia would qualify.

It was all said by the Wigan fans and was left alone for them to enjoy.
I reply to postings that stick in my craw by some who are chest beating
about 1 win.And attempting to take away the good job our boys have done
so far by making light of our wins.(Most of what I say is in defence)
It's bad manners and bad form IMO.

I know the 1 digit number.
I'm talking about the avalanche had things been the other way.

That was put in for good measure,you don't have a monopoly on inane
drivel.
I haven't seen the second half yet,I just have alot of faith in Aussie
coaches.I was a punt.(pardon the pun)

Not many of us in here would have seen it, I suspect.  I didn't.  

It certainly didn't come as any surprise to me that Wigan won on the
day.  Canterbury are not the side they were in earlier years and they
have been playing poorly for the last several rounds of the local SL
competition.  

It will be a great match here when Wigan play Canberra.  Both sides
will have learnt a lot from the earlier rounds, and I expect that the
match will be very close.  On paper, and current form, the Raiders
ought to win, particularly if they have both Daley and Mullins back.
(It might be too early for Nadruku to be expected to perform up to his
normal standard as, if he plays at all, it will probably only be his
second game back from a broken leg.)  

If this game doesn't drag a huge crowd through the turnstiles then
I'll have to admit that Rugby League (and not just SL) is in deep
shite in this country.

You fail to answer points and you continue in your insulting manner? Are
you sure this is the way you want this thing to go?

Have you found one posting from me saying anything other than London
would get beaten by Brisbane, has any posting mentioned that we would
loose by just one point?

I have read postings from Aussies that predicted the Brisbane winning
margin would be as high as 80 points, Aussie papers predicted what? 57
points? Rex himself predicted that the best London could hope for would
be a 24 point loss at home.

Try thinking about the facts here before you post. Who is arrogant and
who is one-eyed?
