    You see it with the World CLub Challenge in League, except the end of the season seems to be a benefit for one team, cause the other hasn't even played a game at the start of a new season - thus no match practice.

    CB aren't you being generous to the English here. I would rate them 5th (behind three southern hemisphere teams and France) based on the severe thrashing they got recently.

    You would too, since the Springboks did in fact win the TRI-NATIONS this year.

    Wouldn't you be more likely to get the flame-war you seem to have your heart set on if you posted such messages on a RUGBY website?

    As an Englishman living in God's country (Oz) let me ask you all a question. How many here know of Union let alone play it? I'll give you a hint. Of the four codes, Rules, Soccer, League and Union, Union comes last by a fair margin. That alone makes it amazing the Oz can even compete with anbody let alone All Blacks etc.

    Well when 75% of the population has never heard of Union they are not going to worry about it are they?
