    Cool. We get Scotland vs Tonga and Samoa vs Tonga. Not bad for lil' ol' Cairns Smile

    The best part is not having to listen to Channel 7 commentators! Does anyone remember the job they did on the cricket that time they got the rights? *shudders*. Sent me back to channel 9 for year....

    We got to win a qualifying group which has Italy and Serbia in it! Last time we played Italy in the World Cup they had Tedesco, Guerra, reithmuller, the minichello brothers, Laffanchi, Ciraldo and fucking Paul Vaughan playing for them haha!!

    What about having no games in Penrith! What the actual fuck.
    The heartland of rugby league and they put no games there. Amazing. Totally agree with the blow ups. Thats shocking.

    3 games in Townsville and none in Penrith. Amazing.

    Penrith is a couple of hours from the other Sydney grounds, not a big deal.

    Penrith crowds don't turn up to watch Penrith. Are they going to turn up to watch a couple of minnows?

    Surely Robbie plays for them. No way he gets selected for Australia.

    Why do the brackets for the last two groups only have 3 teams in each? Can we not scrub up another 2 teams? I would love to see more of the smaller teams get a chance to play, even if it is only in a handful of games and it isn't up to scratch just the variety would be nice to see.
