Watching this match you can see how rugby league coaching has gone into the union game...no doubt about it

What do you think Gideonfel

Except 37-7 up and kicking for goal for a penalty...now that's not rugby league

Agreed, Roylew. Spent this afternoon watching the NRL Canberra vs Cronulla I recorded this morning. Then turned over and started watching the far more pedestrian RU England game. Union just pales in comparison. Just watching a maul right now that seems to go on and on. The wingers might as well go have a coffee break!

Great display by England -

There is no doubt their dominance in the lineout, ruck, maul and tight set scrum was gleaned from watching rugby league videos

I second every word of that wigvet, although it was one of the most open and flowing Union games I've seen for a long time!

Greetings from New Zealand - I was most impressed by the England R.U. team - they are greatly improved.
No doubt they will give the mighty All Blacks a good game, unfortunately they don't play them until next year.
It was pleasing to see that 'young lad' from Billinge doing a fantastic job of goal kicking 😀

i now prefer ru to league,think rl as become a very repetetive game ,5 barges down the middle and a long kick after the fifth tackle.
