With so many exciting young English talent coming through at the moment both in super league and down under it would be interesting to think of what a potential England starting 17 for the 2017 world cup would look like.

Decent team apart from Hardaker at centre.Hardaker is terrible at centre.

Spoilt for choice at fullback but I'd like to fit him in somewhere as he's a great player.

Potentially a very good team and that's with a lot of players not even mentioned - the first ones that sprang to my mind were Warmsly and Crooks

It would be to the detriment of the team to have him at centre.Leeds fortunes turned around when Hardaker moved to full back.

I thought after you post about Tomkins that you had set standard that couldn't be beaten for a long time but somehow you've plumbed new depths already.

Chris Hill will be 28/29 then so he would be in, and then you have Taylor, Crosby and Burke at Wigan reaching their peak in the pack

I watched a fair bit of Daniel Smith in Souths u/20 this season and he is a great prospect, i believe he has been added to the Rabbitohs first team squad next year.

Is Smith British? Perhaps I should know the answer to that already.

From Wigan - Hampshire looks a superstar, I think Taylor will be fantastic, and I really rate Burke.
