The RFL won that…enough said
Man of the match, Shaun O'Loughlin a great 80 mins performance.
It is all about remembering the victory in 30 years time as then no one will remember what went on
To save criticism from Aussie press wouldn’t it have been better to at least appoint a referee not from Wigan!
