Lomax Makinson Scarsbrook Jones are all good enough for first team/knights squad. Wilkin should be picked by Mcnamras logic as he played well in 2007.

Agree about the first 4 ,Wilkin though has had his rep days and not taken them,time to move on

surely lomax makinson and jones for the knights, wilkin is requiring an op apparantly. cant see the logic with the other 3, especially lomax who has gone from elite squad to nil. be interesting to see who chase represents if/when he leaves these shores.


Couldn't agree more.

Lomax should be in the 'elite' squad.

Don't give a ###### about Chase though.

Lomax has to improve his defence,the number of times he takes the dummy runner in defence is alarming,still dont think he's a SH

When I've seen him on Sky Sports his defense has been pretty good. He's good at taking players around the legs and not worried about taking down the bigger guys. I can't remember his defense being poor at the GF in 2010. Having said that Saints got ran about the park all game.

He's every right to play for England.... Live with!

One of the most promising players to come out of Wales for years and he's representing England, what chance have Wales got and other nations if England takes the best players.

Evans wants to play for England as he's half English, born in Wales....... Went to high school in England.

England haven't done anything wrong........

He should be in the Elite squad.

I agree, I'd have put him in over McIlorum as his form was dire from June onwards prior to the infamous send off

I think this squad has a decent balance only area it looks a little light is in the back row surprised Westerman / Watts / Bateman / Whitehead, and I'm sure there are a few others who may or may not be injured, that would add a bit more punch. Other than that a decent side more than capable of winning the comp.

Wrong.

Super league contracts run 1st November to 31st October. Most clubs start per-season in November so you would want new player to be able to join their new clubs then.
