I'd rather watch old League games from 20 years ago then one from the current season on TV, however, I stand by my suggestion of spending a sunny Sunday afternoon standing on a grass hill in suburban Sydney, drinking a tinnie, eating a meat pie & watching out of work electricians & plumbers and grown ass men from Polynesia try to concuss each other.

how do you score 4 points? is there some weird scoring convention in RL that isn't used in union or 7s?
You coin contrarian bro and say shit nonsense like this.

In Rugby League it's:

4 points for a try
2 points for the conversion
2 points for a penalty goal
1 point for a dropped goal

Is meant to make for more running, less kicks at goal.

as always rooting for ABE but will pull hardest to the Scots. caught last 25 minutes of today's match in the airport and glad to see them get the win. hoping the games will be on the channel in India that occasionally shows rugby.
