In Topic: 25/10/14 - 4N - Samoa v England (TV: BBC2 6.30am)

Hi everyone, new to the Forum so please be gentle. Lots of comments about Farrell not being big enough to play international rugby. Height wise (on the team photo) he looks similar to the 2 guys next to him(cooper/ferres?) and weight wise with the team of conditioners/dieticians that wigan have if they wanted to bulk him up then they could do that without too much difficulty. So I assume that 97kgs is his "fighting" weight and is right for the role in the team both in attack and defence. Perhaps he has been selected because the coach has a specific role against Samoa  which Farrell suits better than the other options at second row.
Or perhaps Whitehead is not quite match fit.

Let's see how L. Farrell goes on the pitch before people start bagging his height and weight! Personally I think he'll go well.

They are rising fast. Wouldn't want to be against them in the next WC.

I honestly believe that png could be a major force in international RL! RL is the national sport, the population of png is about 7 million+ I believe and the introduction of the sp hunters is a huge stepping stone for local domestic based png players. PNG need to be playing at least 4 or 5 internationals each year.

Too right. This team was only PNG based players too and Tonga had plenty of NRL representation.

Was that out of choice or were the NRL based players not allowed to play by their clubs?

Potential to be the best winger in the world.  Excellent signing.

Agreed! Absolute gem of a player that comes around every 10 years, must start for England in the 4nations.

God bless the salary cap!

The salary cap is the lesser of the two evils I'm afraid, without it we would go back to 1 or maybe 2 sides dominating the English domestic scene like Wigan did in the late 80's and early to mid 90's.
