    That's ridiculous isn't it ??

    Should've been an Aussie ref and Aussie bunker officials

    Tony Archer makes the appointments I think....That would explain the stupidity of the decision to stick pommy officials in there

    You wouldn't think it would be hard to figure out.

    Ryan Hall lost control over that grounding too.

    I've been impressed with Ireland & France. I think they along with Scotland are genuinely decent sides when put up against fair opposition. Wales on the other hand are on a hiding to nowhere, they look like they should throw in the white towel & they're only up against Fiji. Players just too big & strong for them, Aku ripping up.

    I was thinking that it was a real sloppy game but I don't know if it was just me but it was one of the most entertaining games I've seen since I can remember.

    There was real passion in both teams, they actually hated each other. I miss that, in our competition.

    Yeah the format is pretty ordinary. Pools A and B have 3 qualify and pools C and D have 1.
    they should be looking to go to a 16 team competition with 4 groups of 4 with 2 from each advancing, put the top 4 teams in each pool then draw the rest randomly.

    The current format is very good.
    A few sides will be unlucky to miss the top 8, but whatever format we use, the difference between 7,8,9 and 10 will come down to luck. In this case Lebanon and PNG make it and France and Ireland miss out - and it came down to a few points here or there.
    The beauty of the current system is that it maximises the number of competitive games by keeping the strong sides together and still gives the weaker sides a fair chance to earn a spot in the knockout rounds.
    If we did it the other way, half the games would be rubbish training runs like Australia V USA with Australia winning by 100 without breaking a sweat.

    Billy is it really that important the whole fiasco?

    The money being spent on the Islands sides should be shared with CRL NSW and Qld, and of course PNG which just has to be a future expansion.

    McGillvary referred to judiciary on biting charge


    Mon 06 Nov, 2017, 12:40pm
    ‌‌‌NRL.com


    England winger Jermaine McGillvary has been referred straight to the World Cup judiciary on a charge of biting Lebanon's Robbie Farah in Friday night's 29-10 win over the Cedars.

    The 42nd-minute incident resulted in a running battle between the pair throughout the second half after Farah reported the incident to referee Ben Thaler.

    McGillvary - who has been a standout for England, scoring in both their matches so far - has now been referred directly to the judiciary panel.

    His contrary conduct hearing will take place on Wednesday night and will determine his availability for England's final pool game, against France on Sunday night.

    I really blame Robbie.

    Must have left some pizza dough and ingredients on that arm when he left the restaurant. Jermaine just could not resist.
