Brough is 30. Been at lots of clubs. Just how many medals does he have in his trophy cabinet?

We're in this World Cup to win it, not to have a few flash moments that look good on the replays.

 

It's a cup, he's got a cup winners medal.

I'd rather Sinfield had a few average performances now rather than later in the season for England. Brough on his day is a great player. However England have been building a team over the last few years. I don't want England to pick the best 13 individuals for the World Cup. I want the best team.

Those players are going to be in camp together for 6 weeks. They are going to have to put their bodies on the line for the bloke next to them and to make sacrifices for the sake of the team for 6 whole weeks.

It's not just about chucking the 13 best players out there and saying go win the World Cup.

For year's people have been saying if we're going to beat the Aussies England/GB need to do something different. That's what has been happening for the last few years. We've now got a club feel to the England side. Brough was part of the squad last year and played in the Exiles match. Not only didn't he play well, but he obviously didn't fit in to the team, else he'd have been back in the squad this year.

Could not agree more, my thoughts on the subject exactly.

One cup winners medal, not much of a return for a player who some reckon to be the answer to all our prayers! As for Peacock, if he was younger then clearly we should.

I meant Peacock is the only Leeds player with a Cup winners medal! :ph34r:

That is all well and good but if players are a hinderance to that system, they need to be dropped no matter what characteristics they bring to the team. Sinfield is a very good rugby league player but is too slow to play half back against the Australians. In the 2011 Quad Nations, I thought he was a hinderance to Chase who visibly would get annoyed with his half back partner. By all means include Sinfield in the set up in some form but he isn't a big enough threat for me at half back to warrant a place in the game day squad.

Brought has been the best stand off or a couple of seasons now, that he hasn't wont many medals is irrelevant - given the trophies have been dominated by two or three teams

The fact he has one cup winners medal alone says he has more medals that a huge proportion of super league players

We might have been building a team for some time, but if the architect is too incompetent to realise he has used poor cement that won't mean a damn in the autumn

Do you think we'll need to put a finger in a dyke then?

1. I'd rather Sinfield had a few average performances now rather than later in the season for England. Brough on his day is a great player. However England have been building a team over the last few years. I don't want England to pick the best 13 individuals for the World Cup. I want the best team.

2. Those players are going to be in camp together for 6 weeks. They are going to have to put their bodies on the line for the bloke next to them and to make sacrifices for the sake of the team for 6 whole weeks. It's not just about chucking the 13 best players out there and saying go win the World Cup.

3. For year's people have been saying if we're going to beat the Aussies England/GB need to do something different. That's what has been happening for the last few years. We've now got a club feel to the England side.

 

4. Brough was part of the squad last year and played in the Exiles match. Not only didn't he play well, but he obviously didn't fit in to the team, else he'd have been back in the squad this year.

5. Brough is 30. Been at lots of clubs. Just how many medals does he have in his trophy cabinet?

6. We're in this World Cup to win it, not to have a few flash moments that look good on the replays.

 

1. On that basis then we shouldn't select; Kallum Watkins, Sam Burgess, George Burgess ect as they haven't been part of this team building have they. Every other nation selects the best 13 players in their respective position, why should we do any different to accommodate a sub international standard half back partnership.

 

2. Your saying Danny Brough isn't going to put his body on the line for England if he plays? I hardly think thats true.

 

3. Yes its been happening but it didn't work 2 years ago. We lost the final because their half backs were several classes above ours in every aspect. The pressure they built up won them the game. Why not try something different and play our best 2 half backs in their actual position, that will give us the best chance of winning.

 

4. The team which played in that exiles will be completely different to the one we have now. Infact I imagine 5 players from that team he played in will start at the millennium stadium, if that. The back row we had that game kept missing tackles. Menzies ripped them apart, it was the worst back row I've seen pull on an England shirt in my life time. What can Brough do about missed tackles on the edges?

 

5. On that basis we need Paul Wellens at full back, Jamie Peacock in the front row. Sean Long and Leon Pryce in the halves with Jamie Jones Buchanan at second row.

 

6. You make this statement then say we should keep Rangi Chase in the side? Really?

Id rather read what he has to say than attend a live lecture and be forced to endure his monotone drone!
Whether or not he has something interesting to say his delivery would put a glass eye to sleep hence you never see Barrie Mac in lengthy conversation with him.

The selection for the Exiles should be interesting.
Brough one of the form players in SL at present.
Sinfield out of form, playing poorly and making game losing plays.

Shown up and outclassed again tonight, Daniel Holdsworth has steered Hull FC round the park and kicked Leeds to death while Kevin Sinfield only managed a few disapproving stares into the ref cam.

Is he out if form is this simply how he plays? It's not like he breaks the line usually and has stopped for a few weeks.

In the game against Hull F.C., Leeds did not have the field position to inflict any damage with the kicking game. Sinfield is at his best when able to put dangerous kicks close to the goal line. The kicks last night were from far down the pitch and so straight to McDonnell with the result that the Hull full back was able to make easy metres. Could Sinfield's poor form also be related to the absence of the under-rated Ablett? Leeds won last year's Grand Final not only due to Sinfield's kicking but also because Ablett was pressing the locations where the ball was landing.
