Got to agree, the rules in League are simple and it makes for a great spectator sport...if you struggle to follow League I wouldn't even bother with the big group hug that is Union.

The rules in league aren't simple. Almost every passage of play requires explanation and it gets tedious for explainer and explainee after a while.

Cracking result for them, that first half was superb to watch

Best of the northern hemisphere teams at the moment

The first half was crazy, particularly the first 20 min or so.

I'm really surprised, they're not that great on paper - good but not amazing but those results and performances are massive. It must be said that Australia are in transition and South Africa had a very poor game, but you can't take that away them.

3rd In the world at the moment, I'm surprised as I'd have thought with all the changes they'd be struggling but you can't knock the results or the teams they're doing it against.

Between him and Myler.

Guess it depends if they want something different to Ford which would give Myler the edge.
