Burgess was lucky not to be sent. Massive hit on Thaiday. Precedent set?

Although Henry had a good game as ref I thought. He's got potential. Really liked the way they talked through video ref calls, would like to see that in NRL.

DCE can play halfback.
Smith was kind of quiet too.
I think England surprised them, surprised me.

Theres a lot of old players in the Aussie team and its been a very long season for a lot of them. Im not writing Australia off but on that performance its going to be Eng V AUS in the final.

could England beat Australia in the Final ?

Aus are just complacent, there is no way they should lose to any other team

ha ha SBW, coach killer! good thing it wasn't a decisive try. bet he gets schooled on simply tucking the ball under his arm and hitting the deck over the line.

JT was a funny also.

Found this pretty handy to easily get game times. Australia Vs Fiji will be on at 5:30am Sunday with a replay later that evening.

Make sure you set the region to get the right time, it defaults to Sydney but Qld is an hour earlier.

They f***ed up at the end. A couple of s*** kicks and that high shot allowed NZ to keep up the pressure in the last 5 minutes.
In the end I think it's better for Australia to beat NZ rather than we win the cup without ever playing them.

Some brilliant tries were put on in that game.

Watched the Australia game, is there any position Jarrod can't play?

Hope he gets another run vs New Zealand. It'd be interesting to see him play centre against decent opposition.

Billy might make a recovery for the final apparently.

70 000 Poms got to see what Rugby League looks like at its best.
Australia were awesome.
Full credit to Tim Sheens for being able to keep the team focused on a ridiculously long tournament.

I think the scoreline flattered NZ.

Theres a replay on 7mate s'arvo 3.30pm

I dont know whats going to happen to International RL.
Australia are a long way ahead of the Poms and Kiwis though on their day they can get close. I dont think another World Cup is a viable.
NRL clubs are risking their players health for pointless games.

The Pacific Island Nations should be a combined side.
Poms should consist of Great Britain.
While its important to promote the game you have to have a quality product.
Australia scored almost 250 points and conceded 4 over their last 5 games

Vossy was at his best.

I liked the 4 meter in goal area.
It deterred kick and hope tries.

It obviously didn't, all it did was put two players in a very dangerous situation.

Was a brilliant game, Cooper Cronks first try was a try, a few fingers under the ball doesn't prevent it from being grassed. Great effort by Issac Luke though, he was NZ's best.

NZ were very disappointing, nothing seemed to come off for Sonny Bill and their forwards just didn't step up to give their play makers a chance.

Australia were clinical with so many players stepping up and having awesome games. Despite all the MotM accolades going to JT, Hayne has been man of the tournament for Australia IMO. Last night he reminded me a lot of Hodges with his well timed dummy half runs and his strength in defense.

they needed more safety padding at the goals but I liked the idea of a shorter in goal.

Seems kind of amateurish to play a World Cup Final on a ground that doesnt meet the requirements for an official match.

Hayne had his best game in years, he was really impressive at centre.
Maybe NSW should look at giving him a go there.

So many players had a great game. Australia were perfection!

Australia were f*****g fantastic.

I have to say 7s coverage of the game was very good as well. Broadcast in 1080i, Vossy calling, very few ads in play, replays were good, listening to the video refs thoughts. The pre/post game coverage wasn't the best and their stats graphs need some beefing up, but I thought they did a much better job than 9 does.

For the first time since 2011, two games will be held in Queensland in next year's series. Game I will be played in Brisbane on May 28, Game II in Sydney on June 18, before the series returns to Brisbane for Game III on July 9.

Shark had been fined $1 Millions, Flanagan Suspended from the NRL HQ and ASDA.


The National Rugby League (NRL) has completed its review of governance issues at the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks Football Club (the Club) in 2010 and 2011 and the preliminary findings have identified serious failures on the part of the Club and certain individuals who had a responsibility to safeguard the health and welfare of its players.

NRL CEO, Mr Dave Smith, announced today the preliminary findings are that the Club breached the NRL Code of Conduct in several respects and that Head Coach Shane Flanagan and the then Head of Strength and Conditioning Trent Elkin were responsible for a number of the failings leading to those contraventions.
