There is no justification for calling it yawnion with the standard of rugby league that has been dished up by ALL teams over the past few seasons.


No, in the same way that theyve taken on board the best bits of RL, were clearly taking on board the best bits of RU - and then the two games will meet somewhere in the middle.

The Springboks and All Blacks game was very enjoyable. That Bok Korbe lad would also be great in League, no danger.

Rugby union is far more entertaining than SL.

Leigh Centurions - 100+ years / Circa 3k
Wakefield Wildcats - 100+ years / Circa 4k
Toronto Wolfpack - 3 years / 9k

Doesn't feel like there has been as much media hype about this RUWC as usual in the mainstream media.

Of course there is more coverage than there would be of the RL World Cup, but I seem to remember all the other RUWCs feeling a lot more of a big deal on the TV and airwaves.

Probably more to do with the venue. No doubt that if one of the home nations , especially England, have a good tournament, then the coverage will ramp up. There is still a lot of pointless matches being played at this stage, though with the Japanese shocking Ireland, it is certainly going to make things more interesting.

As for entertainment, this morning's Wales/Australia game was better than any SL game I've seen this year.
And so you aim towards the sky,
And you'll rise high today,
Fly away, Far away,
Far from pain....

Fiji-Australia, Wales-Australia, SA-New Zealand, Ireland-Japan have all been good games to watch. Far more excitement than most of our SL games this year....

League is the new Yawnion. Yes I am a long standing RL fan but you cant get away from the fact that in terms of entertainment Leagues going backwards whilst Union is going forwards.

Controversial but I fear it's TRUE.

Personally I prefer league (even though I played union), but where union wins out is the international game. Having more than 3 or 4 top flight teams (though union still has the same problems as league with failure to support the second tier nations) really helps having meaningful internationals year after year and not randomly every year.

In terms of style/game play I know what you mean about league becoming more boring (5 hits and a tackle), though union isn't immune to that with endless phases - both are testament to how good defences have become (largely based on league defence in both games) and how little space there is on the pitch.
