Fans tear into England vs USA compared to Rugby League World Cup as World Cup winner describes it as “boring”

Another fan compared the excitement of the Rugby League World Cup with the “dull as dishwater” football clash:

Some focused on the wheelchair game specifically in comparison:

Others called for the return of the Rugby League World Cup as a whole:
