Good to hear Jack Brooks getting a good reception at Headingley.

10:45 start in the World Cup final this morning. Nerves are kicking in here so goodness knows how both sets of players are feeling.

Unbelievable finish, what a game that was.

My thoughts exactly. :thumbup:

I was a nervous wreck watching it, stood up in the living room for the last hour. You'd have thought I should be used to nerves being a Leeds fan. :crazy:

Me too, pal. I'm exhausted! Simply outstanding, both teams we're exceptional, showed so much character. I follow Yorkshire a lot and watch England when I can but I'd never heard of the 'Super Over' until it was mentioned in the commentary which was actually first mentioned by one of the producers of Sky to Michael Atherton a few hours ago! The big winner was Cricket.

Tell you what too, I thought there was some supreme sportsmanship shown throughout it.

I have to be honest, I think England fluked this, I mean, that '6' from Stokes! Sad maybe but I'm really grateful to C4 for letting us peasants watch it for free :D
