Rugby League is a more attractive sport than Rugby Union.
While Australia and Wales were apparently playing out the best 0-0 draw in Rugby Union history, seven tries were being scored in the genuinely thrilling Rugby League Grand Final between Leeds and Wigan. Fittingly Kevin Sinfield scored the winning points in his final game. Bizarrely he’s moving to union, for an easier life presumably.
WORLD CUP PROBLEMS 2
I had reason to be in Gloucester over the weekend where I met an Australian couple whose pride at seeing their son playing in the World Cup was obvious.
He was playing for the United States mind. A country he’s lived in for just four years. What an unpatriotic farce.
