Parade went to the Rugby League World Cup on Friday night, to witness Australia demolish France 52-6 in Canberra.
While it wasn’t a thrilling game, it was a result that Parade and a majority of people in the crowd were expecting.
The highlight of the game, without doubt, was when French fullback Mark Kheirallah ran 90 metres to score a spectacular try for his team.
At that stage Australia led 10-6 and the French had a few chances to take the lead.
It was never meant to be however, as the Kangaroos raced away to a comfortable win.
Unfortunately for Parade’s sake, his favourite player Josh Mansour was unable to score a try.
He was frequently starved of the ball, after centre Josh Dugan was too willing to keep the ball to himself.
Staying on the tune of the Rugby League World Cup, many games throughout the tournament have been blow-outs – Fiji winning 72-6 over Wales and Italy defeating the United States 46-0, to name a couple.
However, there was one games on the weekend that were absolute cracker.
Tonga defeated Samoa 32-18 on Saturday, at Hamilton in New Zealand.
It was a tight, tough game that had plenty of pre-game hype around it, were several street brawls broke out in New Zealand between Samoan and Tongan supporters.
With the team Tonga have, the Kiwis should brace themselves for a tough game on Saturday in Hamilton.
Parade will be watching closely from home.
