All honour to England who outplayed the pathetic Kiwis in every phase. But what a biased crowd! I've never heard anything like them - watching the game on TV, in Norway. From before the kickoff they demonstrated not even a hint of sportsmanship, wanting to spectate a would-be exciting match, and were out for Kiwi blood. Besides, the commentators Hemming and Carney were immensely partisan, attempting pitifully to praise a Kiwi movement with the annoying 'To be fair ...' Yet they were anything but 'fair'. And for half the game they forgot which player had the ball and were drooled on about past feats and games.

Bring on the Ozzies, come on England!!! In with a real chance. I think Chase that he really wants to play for England, well in Rangi and well in the rest of the team. Brilliant tonight!

Sterling and dominant display .The pack was immense and the defence much improved. Still though I don't think the halves look quite right. To have so much ball and territory and struggle so long to score points is something that shouldnt be glossed over . I'm genuinely shocked Widdop is playing such a bit part . The guy is a Storm superstar!! Surely he should be at 6 , Sinfield doing his thing at 13. That gives us more attacking options and creativity.As it is we sometimes looked a bit disjointed in the first hour near the line and lacking in zip.Id love to see Widdop , Chase and Tomkins as our main offensive weapons with Sinfield more an organiser. Still we're in the Final! A few tinkerings and who knows?
