Two games this morning. Firstly the Aussies looked ordinary in the first half where it finished 8-0 and credit to France for sticking it to us. We ran away to a comfortable 42 - 4 win. The crowd was probably under 2000 and I have seen a better atmosphere at Manly Oval. The Kiwi / Pom game later was a ripper. A massive commitment from the Pommy forwards won them the game 20 to 12. They will be feeling the bruises for the rest of this week. It was the Aussie B team against France and there will be big changes for next week. As the Poms showed in the second half last weekend they can dominate and score points, and with a huge contingent of singing red and white supporters it should be a Final worth looking forward to.
