  1. This test is a nightmare for England, the players needed to fly out last week to give them time to acclimatise, expecting them to be at their best arriving 5 days before a big test is a disgrace.
  2. This game will prove that Wayne Bennett is not the man to take England forward, I think Samoa will win.
  3. A couple of things about Blake Austin, I saw an interview with him a couple of weeks ago and he said his goal was to play Origin and for Australia, that in itself should put a black marker through his name. The other thing is he has really been pretty ordinary this season, he's had the odd moment of class but has been disappointing in general.
  4. Larroyer would still be in my 17, Yaha would be on 1 wing and I'd have Albert before Bosc.
  5. I spoke about him on another forum earlier this year, this kid really has something special about him.
  6. Le Cam is only 17, looking forward to seeing how he develops physically. Id say he has exceeded expectations playing in the under 19's so far this season.
  7. I think he scored 3 tries last weekend and possibly 2 the week before v Leeds, not a bad effort for a second rower.
  8. It's all about getting the best out of your players, making average players good and making good players great etc. Dary Powell deserves a hell of a lot of credit not only for that but the style Cas are playing is fantastic to watch. Some coaches are all about themselves and they're egos, the best coaches couldn't give a damn about ###### like that.
  9. Hvy wg, can you keep an eye out for Corentin LeCam and update us on his development. Thanks.
  10. James Batchelor is ready now imo, I hope Chris Chester starts with him in SL game 1, he is outstanding.
  11. The best system has proven to be clubs having teams at u16, 18 & 20's The problem is that clubs want to put their money into overseas players pockets so they scrapped the u20's and raised the 18s to 19s. It's a poor structure, not only are clubs forced to make decisions on kids before they're time but you are open to 19yo kids not being tested enough as they are up against others several years younger.
  12. Apparently Harvey Livett was absolutely outstanding for Warrington v Widnes, he turns 20 next year and hopefully he gets a few games to show what he can do. Just wondering if a season in the NRL U20's would be better for his development.
  13. For the good of English RL you need to see the emergence of an out and out superstar, preferably in the halves. Plus how good would it be if another Ellery Hanley or Sam burgess for example came out of nowhere, someone who completely dominates SL in 2017.
  14. Danny Walker the live wire hooker actually looked a better prospect and is only 17, no relation I believe. I have heard Brad Walker being likened to a young Paul Sculthorpe.
  15. I got to see Smith and Walker up close during the academy tour in August and I was a bit disappointed, Walker may have been injured as his knee was heavily strapped and seemed to limp his way through the tour. Smith played within himself and looked like he a plenty more to give without actually delivering. Having said that I believe they will benefit a hell of a lot and expect them both to have big futures in the game. The players who did stand out on tour were Jack Wells, Matty English and the big but very raw Mikolaj Oledzki.
