Was impressed with our team.
Kind of expected that type of result against a full strength England.
Tapine,Harris,JFH are my backrow of the future to be lead by Marty and NAS up front.
Marsters was everything i expected ,great to have a powerhouse attacking centre in a Kiwi jersey again.
Ese ese will improve with more opportunity,has time on his side.
Blair and JWH are not spring chickens and JBrom is still to put justice to the jersey.
Expressed our halves situation a few posts back,Te Maire Martin and Kodi were sound,and will be hoping to join Shaun Johnson in the future.
Watching Tevita Harris in the ISP,he will be in contention one day.
Future looks good,have faith that Madge can bring it all together and make our Kiwis great again.

I'd like to see an interview with the players where they describe the effects of altitude. That would be really interesting ..

As for the result it was expected but nice to see some depth come through. That was almost a full strength pommie side.
You might need to set up a log in to access this but it's free.

Not sure if O'Loughlin is the interpreter for Bennett or vice versa

Pride didn't even register, I was like "good job, get that cant"
Did you feel proud when all the peoples around world congratulated Jacinda for giving birth? Bet you did, eh..
What's the new baby Jesus got to do with it? Yeah I thought it was funny during the game, but in hindsight it's no different to eye gouging or fingering rectums. No mana, just a dog. I thought he'd grown up a bit lately, autism or not, but I hope he fucks off to ESL next year now, he'll have to watch his back over there. Pride didn't register because there's nothing to be proud of in hand stomping a prone opponent, more like watching a little bitch shame the jersey when his job was to bully us over the tryline.

I'll wait for someone to justify his cowardice and convince me he's not a fuckwit.

I thought the Warriors in all the games played well. Luke, Hiku, Maumolo and Gavet and Lino all looked the part. Lino has to be a chance for a Kiwi jersey if he wants one.

I’d rather he stayed with Samoa, hate this chopping and changing even if it doesn’t benefit us

yea i agree with this. Eastern europe seen as a hunting ground for hard bastards not long ago. Also there is south america where they cant all like clutching their ankles while having a sook on the ground. And lastly what about South Africa, why has it never taken off there?

SA was all about politics- if you think Union is bad for stomping down league in NZ the saffas were worse.
Would be interesting to see how the Argies would go at league, they have some tough bastards same with the likes of Georgia and Romania etc

Article on South Africa here:

What Rugby Union has done to prevent Rugby League from taking off in many countries borders on the criminal. It's not that long ago but in UK if you played League even as an amateur you were banned from Union allegedly because of it's association with professionalism. I went to a union playing school (posh lad me;)) in a league playing area and lads getting to 18 had to make a choice between school first XV or the local league club

You think any will this week? Just seen their flight has been cancelled. Not expected back now until late Wednesday...
There was a lot of debate on the issues with this game. Things like playing at altitude, backing up etc. I can't recall if anyone listed the possibility of the flight back being delayed making backing up even more difficult.

Typical of the way the whole organisation of the game that the final part of it in bringing the players back also has an issue.
