I love the idea of it since watching the widnes Canberra game at ot.

I thought that the 3 side competition was a great idea unfortunately the Australian sides rarely take it seriously and when they do generally win convincingly.

Pains we to say it but good luck on sunday.

But that's an assumption, not a fact. And it's an assumption you choose to believe because thus far your team hasn't participated in this fixture. When they do, and it won't be long - maybe as soon as next year - and you have an actual interest in seeing what's in front of you, I predict that you'll consider it a much more competitive match than you suggest.

Don't buy into that Phil Gould-esque claptrap.

I've been to all the Wigan WCCs, and on no occasion, with the possible exception of 1991, did I feel the opposition weren't giving it a big shot.

I'm not pretending the NRL isn't much stronger than us overall, but we can often match them on the day in single fixtures. It's a crying shame that so many British fans are either so dazzled by the NRL that they live in denial of this, or are so determined to play down the achievements of rivals that they prefer to promote the fictional negatives.

I'd actually love to know what the "don't take it seriously' comment is based on. Cronulla were quite clearly gutted the other year if you watch the post match interviews.

It's by Aussie fans to save face or by non-Wigan fans to diminish the achievement.

The Aussies only take it seriously when they play Saints!! Just have a look on RedVee.

SAINTS THE ORIGINAL AND PERENNIAL CHEATS

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row
Saints have five in a row

By jot taking it seriously I mean it's a big effort to get them to play the game witb UK clubs often having to front a retainer, with big names often missing. And the constant will it happen won't it happen scenarios. More so when it was 3 teams.

I am always happy when uk teams are victorious, but when they do come over to win they do. Your wcc wins and widnes' in that era were great and deserved. But there was a series when Wigan saints and wire all played and all got beat.

Not atal, I want any UK side to beat the convicts. Love for us to be in it but the more recent competitions have been missing a lot of their big name players there is a reluctance to travel from them. It's notable that we have not won a wcc when travelling to oz. (according to wiki tho I thought u won over there) You can tell when they're interested as don't turn up to the UK a few days before. I think that it would be better penciled in for a week or so after both finals with it alternating between being played in UK and oz
