    How ya doing lads,cant believe it's 3 years since we last met.
    To all you Manly fans who are travelling to LEEDS may i take this oppotunity in offering you a warm welcome to our city and im sure you'll enjoy your stay in LEEDS.
    Up until this week we've had one of our mildest winter's in years,,,,,,,unfortunatley the winter hit back with a vengence with a freezing cold week culminating with a heavy snowfall on Saturday,so leave your budgie smuglers at home.
    safe journey to the UK and look forward to meeting up with you lads for a few pre game beers,,,,,,take it easy

    Joiners, the MWTS are set on bringing back the World Cup AND any drinking Trophies on offer :p

    Look after them as they are the Great Unwashed in Oz,loving the most envied Team in the NRL :D

    May the weather be as warm as the posts (so far) by the Rhinos Fans.

    Won't be minus 20, I have been keeping an eye on the weather and it's not that bad BUT will be a bloody damn sight colder than Brizvegas at the moment

    I'm not making any bold predictions about the result of the game.BUT to you HappyManly one trophy you lads wont take back to Oz is any drinking trophy as us Brits excell in pub games.Look forward to meeting up around the pubs of Headingley with the MWTS and putting them to the test. take it easy lads......

    Thanks loiners - I'll be over with the first group that arrives early this Saturday (spot of brecky, wipe down with a copy of sporting life and then off to a local hostelry for some EPL)

    I'm from the UK originally so will be translating for the group and will help them with any strange customs and rituals they may not have encountered before.

    Of course a big part of any trip is spending time with the locals so we look forward to doing that very early on in the piece.

    I'm told a visit to the Ship is well worth the effort?
