Cracking start to the WORLD CLUB CHALLENGE

Post by NRL&NFLweLaughATafl »

Games like this an AFL fan will never ever experience. Top flight teams from different nations and competions playing against each other.
Was a high scoring match with a few scuffles and up for it English crowd.
In the end Warrington held on to win.

27 WARRINGTON WOLVES - BRISBANE BRONCOES 18

Will be interesting to see the Cronulla Sharks vs Wigan Warriors tomorrow.

Wigan are surprisingly favourites.

Yeah they definitely took Brisbane by surprise. Think they were desperate to prove Super League teams are'nt walkovers. :lol:

I am not sure why Union don't do it.
Would be great to see teams like the Waratahs and Brumbies playing the best in French and UK Rugby competions.

I heard this on the radio the other day (abc) and they interviewed a player. The commentator was going on about this comp and another comp Cronulla play? What are these two. He was saying the one talked of here was pointless but the one with Cronulla had meaning ? When he interviews the broncos player the player said he was sick of people asking that (does it have any meaning). Me personally would think it would have so was curious.

Brisbane vs Warrington is more like a trial game because neither team won the grand final.

But Cronulla vs Wigan is the winner of each grand final playing each other. (NRL premiers vs Super League premiers)
The winner claims best Rugby League team in the world.

Yeah the Australian teams are being accused of being arrogant for not wanting to support the concept more due to winning most of the games.

I think it has fired up the poms a bit. :lol:

I think because it is a Super League run event.
