the only time a GB tour makes sense,without distrupting other established comps like the 4 nations,european cup & world cup is in the year after a world cup.
2013 world cup
2014 GB tour (proper tour meaning 3 tests v australia plus a couple of tests v png,tonga,fiji etc)
2015 4nations,european cup,pacific cup
2016 4nations,european cup,pacific cup
2017 world cup
2018 GB tour of NZ
its gets the GB tour out the way so then everyone can concentrate on building towards the next world cup...
the suggested plan of having a GB tour in 2015 involving 2 games v australia,2 games v NZ and maybe play a pacific island allstars team....seems like a back of a fag packet idea which leaves the RFL with only 1 series/tournament to host (the 2016 4 nations) between now and 2018...
