I'm on about Kris Welham and Richard Horne, not Paul Sykes and Kirk Yeaman.

Are Ellis, Burgess & Widdop not in the squad?? Plus why has it been picked already rather than in a few months time?

It's a team building session for players based in England.

Steve Macnamara was on Radio Blunderside toneet, for his sins, and spoke very well.

It's not a train on squad as such, he said he simply wanted to get players together from the current European Super League, to see how they interacted and to find out who would and who wouldn't add to an England team, in the bonding sense, rather than out on the field.

He spoke about personalities rather than form as, from his words, a happy squad is more likely to succeed than one that isn't. I wonder if he was referring to our last debacle down under in the world cup when he chose to say that...

                Lee Radford rang me the other week....I knew Hull FC were a bit desperate but I had no idea it had got that bad.

Steve McNamara is just using the international rules as they are today. i am of the opinion that once you have played senior international Rugby League for one country you should be made to stick with that country.
the whole situation needs to be looked at seriously, as it stands today its a joke.

it really is strange why tomkins has been missed out, if it is an oversight it is a shocking one that they should be ashamed of, worse still do they know something we don't?

What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.

Agree with you on the Joel Tomkins ommission but back row is our strongest area, maybe McNamara feels we don't need him.

The forward power looks good but we look very lightweight in the outside backs.

Ah! Cool. Hopefully he'll be able to sort out the players who just don't fit & will give Joel Tomkins & Johnny Lomax a chance in a months or so's time?

What about Tom Briscoe & Peter Fox?

Jon Wilkin?

I stopped taking that list seriously right then.

Even as a Wire I am sorry but Westwood is nowhere near as skillful as Super Sam or Ellis.

Wazza's main industrys are service industries, call centres, warehouses and the public sector nowadays. All three are under threat from the Tory cuts.

He certainly isn't picking on form - Wilkin, Moore? former having been injured and latter terrible this season. Carvell? who has been awful (when fit) and massively outshone by his clubmate Paul Wood. Clubb and LMS? who both have played big roles for the lowest English SL team. No Leon Pryce who has played out of his skin recently (most assists of all English players this year). Clubb and Sykes in the centres over Gleeson? Manu over any English bloke? Four players from Bradford? The top three English try scorers overlooked (Goulding, Riley and Hodgson) and the top English try scoring centre (Welham)?

I think a fair case could be made over Broughton to be fair. Not that I'd have either in a squad if I was picking it.
