Id love to see Lions tours come back, regardless if for the immediate future it would essentially be the England team (plus Danny Brough).. but as a squad, as has been mentioned, the likes of Ben Flower, Gil Dudson and others would be a chance of making an enlarged squad, especially if the intention was to play a few mid week games as touring parties did traditionally.
That being said, i cant see any NRL clubs supporting such an idea, where their players are potentially picked to play rep games other than for SOO.
Timing would probably be the biggest issue for such things also. When would these games be played?
I'd like to see a three test series against the Aussies with games played against PNG, NSW residents and a Queensland residents side.
Start off with a game against PNG, then NSW residents, first test, Queensland residents, second test, third test.
Again, such a thing would depend on timing.
Suspending the SL and NRL for a period of time for such a tour would ever get the go ahead.
