Yes. That one rocked the Aussies back on their heals as it boomed out when the teams walked out of the tunnel at the old Wembley when we beat them there in the 1990s.



The hairs stood up on the back of my neck at Wembley that day. You could see the Aussies visibly intimidated by it all.

We should take back 'I Vow to Thee My Country' from the Union lot who changed the lyrics to something about the world being in 'Union'.... :CRAZY:

Imagine 80k waving and sining that...

I vow to thee, my country, all earthly things above,
Entire and whole and perfect, the service of my love;
The love that asks no question, the love that stands the test,
That lays upon the altar the dearest and the best;
The love that never falters, the love that pays the price,
The love that makes undaunted the final sacrifice.
I heard my country calling, away across the sea,
Across the waves and waters, she calls and calls to me.
Her sword is girded at her side, her helmet on her head,
And around her feet are lying the dying and the dead;
I hear the noise of battle, the thunder of her guns;
I haste to thee, my mother, a son among thy sons.
And there's another country, I've heard of long ago,
Most dear to them that love her, most great to them that know;
We may not count her armies, we may not see her King;
Her fortress is a faithful heart, her pride is suffering;
And soul by soul and silently her shining bounds increase,
And her ways are ways of gentleness, and all her paths are peace.

I second that, powerful song, no other England team is using it and a lot of people know the words, see if we can get that bellowing round the stadiums.

England came out to Land of Hope & Glory at Elland Road for the 4N Final in 2011. Remember it well, awesome atmosphere - until the Aussies kicked into gear.
21 - 19 - 4

Warrington led 16-2 in Saturday's Grand Final, but their joy was short-lived as Wigan roared back to win the Super League title and extend the Wire's 58-year wait to be champions

Land of hope and glory.

Even for people who don't know the lyrics they can belt out a good la la to the tune.
We can be bold enough to make a stand and do battle for our views and beliefs. But we must strive to be mature enough not to resort to unnecessary personal attacks upon people with opposing views.

Adore that song. Such a shame the second verse is now never used.
