As a dedicated "Union man", I must say how much I have enjoyed watching this series, very enjoyable, unfortunately Wales are just there to make up the numbers at the moment, but the sport is growing rapidly here, (you wouldn't have said that 40 years ago !)- Wish England all the best against Australia on Saturday.  :)

Thanks valleyboy  ;)

Yes, Wales were never going to be challenging for top place but it was good to see them put up such a great showing against the Aussies on Sunday and to see Lee Briers get 100 points for Wales before hanging up his Welsh boots!  A good crowd for that match too.

As a 'dedicated Leaguer' and one who is happy to see the game expanding into areas of the country other than the M62 corridor it's also pleasing to see how much the game has expanded in Wales in recent years, despite the demise of the Crusaders in Super League.

As a player of the 70s and 80s it was always great to see some of the fantastic welsh union converts perform in league. I'm hoping that this will be the year that we can turn over the awesome Aussies. I went to school with James Grahams dad and remember seeing James as a 3 year old, and I'll be routing for the other Cumbrian Ryan Hall.

buddy, I reckon we'll all be shouting for Ryan Hall if he can score some more of those fantastic tries he's got already this series! :D

You're right Marina, he has an amazing ability to get the ball down a nano-second before hitting the corner flag. I would have said he has the ballance of a ballet dancer, but I might just meet him some day.
