    It is going to be a tough game to watch today. Im sure like most England League fans, I am devoid of any optimism.

    NZ should have been the number one seed in this and instead they will match up against England in the semis while Australia or whoever wins their group get some free walk in the park.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    The game starts at 2:30 UK time, perfect timing to switch over from the Arsenal match.

    Will be ugly, IMHO. If we hold the Roos to 20 I think we'd almost have done well.

    Pack will match up well (might even say ours looks very slightly better, if anything; will take odds on one of the Burgesses squaring up to Gallen at some point) but the difference between the backs is just huge. Reed (an Aussie, pretty much, obvz) is a massive miss in the centres & the comparison between the halves makes one weep.

    Italy/Taffs might be a better game, tbh. Taking the Eyeties after they dicked us last Sat.

    I mentioned earlier that Italy actually have a decent lineup so on paper they deserve to be favourites but home ground advantage you would imagine will help Wales.

    I'm looking forward to Australia's match. I feel better knowing Graham isn't playing. Betting sites have the margin now at 13.5, it was 12 earlier in the week. For Oz I think Tate and Tamou are lucky to have a starting spot for the opener, Sheens has said that the 7 who miss out will play next game against Fiji.

    Be good for some UK league fans to hopefully get a decent look at Fifita. Maybe the fastest front rower I've ever seen, great leg drive and hits like a Mack truck.

    Kid has game.

    Looking forward to this tourney. It should be good watching all round IMO.

    Lee Mossop is meant to be playing at parra next year isn't he? Be interested in seeing if he can make 368 tackles and 239 hit ups per game and make a difference to our side.

    Big improvement on Hadley.

    League really is the ultimate TV sport isn't it? If you wanted to design a footy code for TV watching you couldn't do much more than league as it is played. And loving it on the HD channel.

    Decent start from England here. Beware the embarrassed team etc etc

    Yeah exactly. I would definitely be running at that pairing. Not that they aren't good individual footballers but Inglis and Boyd have a strong combination. I like Tate but I think we should have had Jennings in the centres and probably Hayne on the wing.
