So we should be, I don't think they've ever beaten us at Rugby League.

England were far from convincing against a poor side, even though they won 36-6. Their next game against Papua New Guinea in the quarter final in Melbourne this coming Sunday morning will be a much tougher proposition than the French.

Pete, I don't disagree with you but a win is a win, and it was run out for some of the squad who are not first choice. We shall see what happens against stronger opposition.

Yes a win is a win, but I'd hope we'd have put up a far more convincing performance against a clearly weaker side. If we don't improve on Sunday, then there is a clear risk that we could be eliminated.

Fiji spring the surprise of the tournament so far, as they knock New Zealand out at the quarter final stage 4-2. Bet that was a thriller, sounds more like a footie score than a rugby league score. The 3 semi finalists so far are Fiji, Tonga and Australia.

Well a win is a win, but again we were far from convincing, as we beat Papua New Guinea 36-6. On to Tonga next weekend.

The semi-final is on Saturday morning 5am kick-off from Auckland against Tonga. Think I'll record it and watch it live a little later.

England squeak past Tinga 20-18 in a far from convincing display. They face Australia in next weeks final.

Pete, I wasn't watching them play Tinga but did see them comfortably beat Tonga apart from the last 5 minutes of madness. England are in the final, so cheer up you grumpy so and so!

Well definitely underwhelmed by the final, as Aussies win 6-0. Sounds more like a footie score than a rugby score. Not very exciting.

Beano, I don't believe Pete watched the game. I fact he can't have done just because of his 'not very exciting' comment.

I watched it as live. It was poor standard attacking wise.

Great move to have the Championship game between Toronto and Toulouse on at the start of the magic weekend.
