Are "proper" tours actually possible now that the seasons run at the same time?

The white one is too 'England'. Maybe change the sleeves to red to represent Wales. ;)

 

That is the GB top going back 50 years plus, why break with tradition??

What would be the point of a GB tour? Why not just an England tour. It would only be English players in it. Danny Brough plays for Scotland but he's English as are plenty more. Players choose to play for other home nations because they can't get in the England Squad obviously there are a few exceptions but can't think of many good enough.

Because gb has history and abit of heritage about it and who knows If gb have regular tours and games and Wales ect play regular tests against the big 3 then it could potentially stop players from switching nations this is what we need.

We need players stop switching I totally agree.

Would reintroducing GB be an admission that the past 6 years with England has been a waste? Can the RFL not just stick with something long enough to give it chance? The national set up, super league, welsh rugby, the championship. To many changes in the game no continuity.
