I'm backing France, go enough there on holiday so they are officially my team....

I was backing the Kiwis, but due to the rules, I can easily switch to a 2nd tier team. and I've not bothered to tell the NZRL!

I have huge respect for the people in France who try to keep the RL torch lit. RL in Britain was hammered by the wankers in the Union 'establishment', but never anything as bad as this:

That is why I love the game, because I hate the toffs of rugby union and the dirty tricks they have pulled on us in the past. I remember reading way back that when the Rugby League was formed the Canterbury Rugby Union actually had a vote on going with the new code. Working class people outnumber the toffs down there but they still lost out.

France playing well. They have some creative structures around the ruck actually getting alot of metres, their left edge defence is absolute crap, they are quite small and cant slow the play the ball down but their attack looks decent better than the island nations and many others which shows you if they get some better forwards the future is bright. Still feel the refs are intimidated to penalise the aussies, cam smith has done 3 flops already, if france can hold on the score could be 36 16 which could be a positive.
