Not the NRL, but Australia vs Russia at the World Cup in 2000.

Final score was 110-4 in Australia's favour.

**** that was such a close and tense game.

I was on the edge of my seat the whole game. It was a gruelling battle but the Aussies got over the top of them in the end.

Full credit to Russia, they were superb in defeat.

Just got myself a copy of the 1998 Elimination Preliminary Final between Broncos and Melbourne.

The guy I got it from has a lot of Broncos games and a lot of classic games from other teams.

Haven't tested the quality yet. In the process of downloading it.

Hopefully it's good quality. If it is, I'll be buying a lot more and uploading highlights videos.

I've been re-watching some 2009 games and every time I do, I find myself watching the 2009 Preliminary Final between Eels and Bulldogs which is up there as one of the best finals games I've seen.

It was a fiery encounter and a terrific atmosphere. The trainers had their work cut out for them at the start of the game.

I have to wonder though, if that was today would Jarryd Hayne have played the GF? El Masri puts a kick into the corner and Goodwin dives in to pounce on it which he ends up doing and scores but as he was doing that Hayne comes across with the knees and ends up making contact with the head of Goodwin. Goodwin was knocked out cold as a result and the Bulldogs were awarded a possible 8 point try and Hayne was put on report.

I do find Greg McCallum's comments interesting, and rather comical.

His first quote.

“We looked at the more serious charge of dropping knees and it’s clear that Jarryd’s made an effort not to make contact with him with his knee,”

His second quote.

“He actually turns his left knee away and it’s the side of his leg that makes contact over the top of his shoulders and his backside hits him in the head.

I honestly don't see how he came to any of those conclusions. It really sounds like they were trying their hardest to look for a way to not suspend him.

Hayne ended up being charged but it wasn't a severe enough charge to suspend him.
