Rugby League World Cup 2013:
New Zealand 2-34 Australia.


http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/rugby-league/25168674

''Australia produced a clinical performance as they thrashed holders New Zealand to win the World Cup at a sold-out Old Trafford.''

I think those cockles were cut off and placed in a kangaroo's pocket, there cobber.:devil:

I do not think it is worth ''packing a sad'' though, Old Chap.:group:

Just a small set back, I am sure.:wink:

PS
December 5-9 2nd Test, Adelaide.:bang:
Back to my locked room for me.

    shush, not that it is really important, but there was a time (still is, I'm sure) when Bletchley Park could have looked at what you are saying and told you what street and in what town in England you were reared!

    We had to let them win. Our Trophy cupboard is full.

    On a side note, whats with the very short in-goal areas at Old Trafford etc.?
    I know you guys have lost the Commonwealth.............Did you lose the in-goal areas as well?
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    Along with inside leg measurements and your shoe size, to boot.:silly:

    Hey shush.....on a serious note:

    When the Mary Rose was brought to the surface and salvaged, a number of English Longbows were removed. Some of these were sent to the state of Florida's archaeological restoration/preservation laboratory which was under the control of a close friend since retired. My friend called me down to the Lab to see the bows, and let me handle a couple. Those things were about 7 feet long, and along the bow at various places the wood had been scalloped out to create an even distribution of released tension when an arrow was sent off. Kinda like setting the sights on a rifle, I guess!
