    That would be because he actually went to a rugby league school. As you can see with most of the players coming from 'colleges' and 'grammars' it wouldnt look too good on tv seen as there are very few ex private school pro rugby league players.

    Officially your not. But the ref has to send you to the blood bin, so its until there is a stoppage or the ref notices. And lets not forget, this isnt rugby union, your avergage league player is probably countless times 'harder' than your average union player.

    Yes, I've heard all about this before. I just thought that was the rules. I guess no-one's going to leave the field until they're told to if they're ok, just bleeding. Even I didn't do that on the one occasion it did happen to me! (That was hockey though, rather than rugby )

    Indeed. Rugby union is a minor sport in Aussie. League is the most popular.

    I when down under to watch the world cup last nov. It was interesting reading the aussie papers taking the piss out of the quality in the union world cup and how it was the ex rugby league players who shone for the two finalist throughout the tournament not the union players.

    There was a comparison between J.Wilkinson and A.Johns in one of the papers. It was hilarious. It was in a top trumps format. Wilkinson only won on goal kicking percentages, by about 3%. Johns took him to the cleaners on everything else
