Today I went to Huddersfield to see England play Ireland in the Rugby League World Cup group A game. I had an excellent seat really near the front of the stand, although it did mean I got slightly wet during the second half. It was a really good day all round with a journey on the train, which was very busy with Rugby fans. I saw both teams arrive at the stadium on the team coaches, had a beer (because I was on the train), excellent seats, brilliant pre-match entertainment (cheer leaders, mascots, singing, and about 300 school children performing a special Haka to welcome everybody to the game).
England romped into an early lead thanks to 5 tries from Leeds wingers Ryan Hall and Tom Briscoe. England eventually ran out 42-0 victors.
I'm now looking forward to going to the World Cup Final at Old Trafford at the end of the month, will England be there?
