I'm not sure what Myler has to do to prove himself tbh.


He does not have to do anything. However, that does not mean he should not or does not have to compete for that spot. In any case, I'm pretty sure McNamara does base his selection on what we say.

Sounds more like Brough - Widdop to me who at least retain the possibility, until proved otherwise, of being up to the job when faced with World Class opposition!

I've got all the respect and administration in the world for Kevin Sinfield who is one of the best players I've seen grace English Rugby League, unfortunately despite numerous chances he's been unable to reach those high standards when it really matters ie when faced with Australia and New Zealand.
I'd love to be proved wrong but I don't think I will be and what's more because of past failures over the last 8 years or so Sinfield should not be given another chance to prove or disprove my theory.

Myler is another story, the jury is still out on him and we won't really know until he's been properly tested!


fair enough but which player will be the organiser certainly not brough although he has a decent kicking game . certainly not widdup who does not preform that role for brisbane but is outstanding as a short passer and makes good breaks . the point is neither of them sets up the style of play or the pace of the game and insures the game plan is kept to . in the case of widdup then of course its cronk who preforms that role at brisbane in the case of brough has anyone got a clue who preformed that role at huddersfield

I'm not sure what Myler has to do to prove himself tbh.

He plays consistently well week in week out in one of the best teams in the league, had a blinding game at Wembley, has improved his game week on week, yet for some reason people would rather see somebody like Lomax in there. Brough is talented, but he doesn;t do it week in week out, and certainly has never been properly tested at the highest level.

Banging your head against a brick wall Dave!!!
I've given up on getting upset when people slate / debate/ moan / troll / etc etc about our players!!!

Myler did well, created a few tries, did some things well and tackled better than most 7's - made a few errors, but so did England as a whole.

Myler isn't a poor player, like you said he's improved and deserves his chance ahead of Lomax and Brough *

* England doesn't need Brough and Sinfield playing in the same team IMHO


I'm not moaning/trolling/slagging/slating or in any other way being derogatory about Myler, I'm merely suggesting that the jury is out until he's been properly tested. That doesn't detract from his performances with Warrington in the League or in Cup finals, it merely means I'd like to see him against Australia or an on form New Zealand before declaring him World class.

Don't be so touchy, not everyone's got an axe to grind

Thanks for the response, Myler as you say deserves his chance, he'll never be world class, he's far from it.
England have no world class 7's
If we move tomkins to 7 and Zak to FB - then maybe we've got a world class player playing 7
