Best team in the world I'd go for:

1. Billy Slater
2. Roger Tuivasa Sheck
3. Michael Jennings
4. Greg Inglis
5. Ryan Hall
6. Jonathan Thurston
7. Cooper Cronk
8. Chris Hill
9. Cameron Smith
10. Jesse Bromwich
11. Sonny Bill Williams
12. Sam Burgess
13. Paul Gallen

14. Isaac Luke
15. George Burgess
16. Andrew Fifita
17. Luke Lewis

With the bench I've gone for one which would make serious impact coming on in the game. I don't think you could put any side together out of the remaining players which would defeat that one.

No you have a debate about someone who is probably in the top 5 - 10 stand offs in the world being picked behind someone who wouldn't even make it into the top 25. It's obviously going to cause outrage.

Its hard to compare like for like as they have never played in each others respective leagues, its also hard to know what each player is like in camp, finally are they both fully fit and more importantly who fits best into the team structure?

The England management team will know best that is why they were headhunted into their positions. ...

Debate is one thing, character assassination is another....

Uate has played with a better backline in origin, he was massively exposed.

Slater

Jennings
Inglis
Hall
Foran
Thurston
Graham
Smith
Bromwich
Burgess
SBW
Gallen

I'd say that eight are 'definites'. About 15-20 players would have a strong
case for the other five places.

Really?

I'd have thought he'd be best at full back or somewhere in the three-quarter line.

   I did see all three matches and while that's true , Some players shouldn't play in trial matches for other countries which they may not relate as well as pulling their own colors on.

 

In my day there was a man called Ohlsen Filipaina who played stand off for NZ. He was hopeless playing in the Winfield cup for the North Sydney Bears. His heart wasn't in it.

 

When the same player pulled on the Black and White , history shows his opposite in Green and Gold had the worst spell of his international career.

Not one person on this thread as mentioned Simon Mannering, and most notably Mount Smart who happens to be a Warriors fan, must say I am a very big fan of his at 13. 

 

Don't see many who can match his work rate and ethic, will always be there or there about's wherever the ball is attack or defence.

 

Big worry of mine for tomorrow, will make his mark.
