We shouldn't be worried about what people from other countries 
think about twitching totals. A twitch was recently held in 
Canterbury, New Zealand, and the top total was a grand 80!

At least occasionally we can score more points in rugby 
(sometimes even in cricket!) than we can see birds in a day. (This 
most recent week notwithstanding...).  I hope Australia never 
manages this feat on the field.

Good luck to the other 16 teams signed up by last night for the Qld
