Is it a case of "same old, same old" for the Poms? Alot of the usual mistakes present I must say. Plently of dropped catches too which proved costly. Namely when Clarke was dropped. Lords has always been a good ground for us to play on but honestly i'd be surprised if Australia dropped a game before...

If Roy Masters in the SMH is correct you wont have to worry about Channel 7 being involved with the NRL. It seems Channel 9 will continue to be the FTA network of the NRL. So much for the massive bidding war that was going to provide the NRL with extra millions for development work etc. Same old Ch...

I'm not really up to date with Rugby League in Perth, but I doubt Rugby League would be driven to the point of extinction. Possibly it will just remain however it is now, but Rugby will certainly grow you would think. By how much? We can only sit and wait. The sport has always held some interest in ...

Thankfully I wasn't affected by commentator garbage, as I attended the match :) I just got the impression Johns found it tough to keep up early on. He played solidly but I felt he was feeling it more than most, as you'd expect of course given he had limited matches prior to the Origin. The Queenslan...

Yes it is an important statistic. There are, what, upwards of 70 home and away matches in Super 12 Rugby each season? The TV audience for these matches in Australia is roughly the equivilent of one half of a round of AFL football. I'd be interested to see some more legitimate figures on Rugby growth...

Early March they finished wasn't it? Either way that's still around 10-12 weeks I spose. When you're talking about time bewteen series, I still think that's a big gap. Still, I don't think it's time to panic just yet. Even if we end up losing the Natwest Challenge. I believe the real indication of w...

Joey had a superb second 40 but looked out of sorts in the opening stages. The forward pass call against Queensland and the 40-20 kick from Johns that followed was what turned the game around for us I think. Had Queensland scored that try it would have been hard to come back, as they put on 12 unans...

The Poms will play off confidence more than anything I think. And if they take out the Natwest Challenge they'll be tough to beat in the First Test. However, I think the Aussie form slump is simply due to a lack of Cricket. If memory serves me well this would have to be one of the longest breaks thi...

Here is a response from a Rugby League perspective (nrl.com). I'd like to get an AFL perpsective also. Beaussie?

Survey finds Rugby passes League, soon to pass AFL

Game's stocks are on rise By Peter Jenkins June 21, 2005 AUSTRALIAN Rugby Union bosses last night welcomed an independent survey that shows the code has developed a stronger following nationwide than rugby league. First time union has surpassed league nationally. The Sweeney Sports Report, conducte...

I may have Beaussie, not sure. I know that i've always had mixed thoughts on the Bangers though. However, aslong as they were given good exposure against the top nations on a regular basis I was confident that in years to come they would possibly have a similar progression to Sri Lanka. That being s...
