Apparently all 42000 seats have been sold for the final. Anyone getting up to watch it?
YES ... C'mon England!
Me too. I'm sure England wont be able to hear me screaming my support for them from Timaru but i'll give it a go all the same.

I could sleep through it and forget it was even on.
Plus it's my first chance at a sleep in for weeks. Last weekend I got up early to watch a league match and...well...yeah.
I want the Aussies to win, i know this sounds strange but i don't think i could handle Eddie and Stevo if the poms do it! Plus lets keep the NRL dominationg international footy!
I want the Aussies to win too, but for another reason. As much as I dislike the Australian team, I dislike the English team even more.
Poms will start well then s--t themselves in the last twenty.
if I'm allowed I will.
All 18 English players (includes video ref) tried hard but Aussie had too much class.
Thank christ...... no more Darren Lockyer farewell matches!!
How good was that conversion from infront.. comedy gold!!!
just watching it now still convinced its mostly mental with the poms, players and commentators alike are in awe and mesmerised by the kangaroo team, they need a core of players who arent overawed by the superstar oz line up and just wanna stick it up them. Burgess when he's back will lead the way in that department no doubt but they need to send more player to NRL even short term.
Locky scoring the final try off his own kick, jeez ya couldnt script that shit
he certainly knows how to make league look fake.
The result is as I guessed - England would hold on for 60 minutes and then Australia would run away with it.
Well, almost 60 minutes. It looks like they were right in it for 56.
Why is that though? Fitness? Mental toughness? Both?
My guess is it's a bit of both, but moreso the latter. I think they're a lot better than they used to be, but the Kangaroos still have that 'awe' factor. The Kiwis, clearly, do not.
The Kiwis hold no fears for the English yet they can't live the aussies. It has to be a mental issue.
Maybe we should fear them, then. We weren't even close in our last match.
