Can we discuss the game instead of the Premier Sports coverage?

I waas there and it was FAN FRIGGIN' TASTIC!!!!!!!
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

By which time we'd seen a league table immediately prior to Samoa-Scotland showing Tonga had won and then heard countless references to the result throughout the commentary...and if you missed it on the commentary for the Australia-Lebanon game. :evil:

This game was as good as anything I've ever seen in four decades watching this sport despite knowing who'd won beforehand. But Premier Sports' incompetence spoiled what what was always going to be the best day of the tournament thus far.

The players rarely fail us - check out Simon Mannering's dignified reaction - and if only we had administrators as good....

Today restored my faith in the greatest game. As someone said 'just when you get a deflated by the game...you get a spectacle like this'

Thank you Tonga and particular thanks to the awesome Jason Taumalolo whose decision to represent Tonga gave them the required self-belief and brought the fans out in tens of thousands. What an atmosphere and what a wonderful day for the game !

The most impressive players for Tonga are Hingano and Lolohea.
A few months ago I watched them lead the Warriors reserve grade side to a very good win in a finals game against the Knights and thought they were firstgraders of the future, and a short time later they are outplaying the Warriors firstgrade halfback in an international of the highest level.
These two kids stepping up to this level is the real difference.
Most of the PI teams have great forwards and backs - it's the spine where they can't compete with the top 3 usually.

England would have a serious battle against either side. The speed and ferociousness was amazing. The best of RL in one fantastic game.

This was a great game, a classic game. Undoubtedly the second greatest game of rugby league I have ever seen.

David Fusitua, take a bow! Tuimoala Lolohea take a bow!

Anyone who missed it is disqualified from calling themselves a rugby league fan..



Feel free to discuss the game without constantly sniping you moron

Just so you know, Paul Rowley is highly thought of here in Toronto.
