    I'm a bit worried about the Ausies having another spin bowler. I mean Warne's bad enough!

    Why dont we throw a spanner in the works then...Union Sevens?
    Just kidding - union is by far the better sport - far more style, flair and technique are involved (its not running straight at someone 5 times and then kicking the ball at them - which is around 90% of what happens at a union match...)
    If league is so good, why would any farrell want to move to union? (same with jason robinson, iestyn harris.etc.)
    Also, jonathon davies moved from union to league (and as he states, it was all for money ) and got straight into the great britain side...
    PLAY UNION!

    Do you want England to win or not? :rolleyes:

    Its bad enough having 7 Aussie frontline batsmen let alone 8!!! Having said that, I doubt that the Aussies will go in with just 3 frontline bowlers and I can't see Symonds bowling 25 overs in an innings.

    Right now I would still bet on the Aussies (if I did), but if England win at Manchester, it would be very interesting.

    Personally, I think League is better to watch, although that doesn't mean that I think Union is rubbish. I prefer League because I like the fact that you are encouraged to play for points rather than possession, as after six tackles you have to hand possession over. Also, I think the Union rucks and mauls look scrappy. I do appreciate that they are very technical, I just don't think that it looks that way. I think the League way is tidier. I also don't like the kicks that frequent Union matches.

    On the other hand, Union is probably a more enriching game to play, being more technical and the larger sport overall. That isn't, though, to say that League isn't good to play, because it is a faster game. The arguments about the play-the-balls slowing it down are nonsense because they take up on average less time than a tackle in union.

    As for the people bleating on about games being more skillful and players moving to different codes, don't be so bloody petty. Farrell has moved because of the money, he is in the England squad because he is a good player, same as what happened with Davies. Both games, in my opinion, are of equal skill, they both have their merits.
