  1. That's a sweeping statement! How do you know the best players are English! Other than saints fans who would have said makinson was world class a year ago?? Sometimes people just need a chance! Your idea is shocking BTW who would support an east of britain team? Also where would the dividing line be? Would Welsh players be get into the east team would London players get in the West? Again where would the line be through Scotland??

    9s World Championship

    It was a PR disaster as they probably thought they could show up RL at the shorter format.
  3. 11 and that is a generation of players
  4. Finals have always sold well for saint helens plenty of glory hunters 😀
  5. When did saints last play at Wembley??
  6. If saints get to a final which will be the first CC final in a generation 30k plus would go! This would sell out the stadium if up against another well supported team!

    9s World Championship

    Would be a disaster if the union team won 😯 union has been professional for a while now and have plenty of ex league players... Not to mention the 7s specialists. I could see Saracens being very competative!
  8. Not a weekend away for most the north west clubs... no bars local and parking rubbish, transport links are ok but can't help but feel the party atmosphere will be lost! London would have been my pick or Barcelona.. cheap flights stadia in the city spanish game growing albeit around Valencia..

    9s World Championship

    Wasn't there a 9s tournament for British sides with one of the cumbrian teams in the final.. Sketchy memory but I think it was on a tour basis and SL clubs entered development sides??

    9s World Championship

    It will work. 13 a side players arnt fully compatible and like union and cricket specialists in the shortened version will appear and will be different players. More space means a higher level of fitness and more emphasis on pace!

    9s World Championship

    Isn't the 9s the format that the RLIF are trying to gain commonwealth and then Olympic admission/recognition? If SO then this tournament is hughlyimportant to international growth of the game as Olympic recognition would dismiss the practice in some countries of banning a seperate RL administration!

    Lions tour 2019 (Merged Threads)

    Defiantly Flower and Grace, rhys williams, kear and Emmit. Poss Lloyd white Scott Grix and Liam Finn From Scotland just Coote. In fact I would include 3 amateur players to encourage the game in Scotland From England I would take the knights squad. Give the first team a year off to recover

    Lions tour 2019 (Merged Threads)

    If it's GB there should be a minimum 5 from each country. A 30 man squad with a first string and second string should see everyone get a game and remain competitive. I would even play France in France before heading off in tour. The Aussies turning their back on this might be a good thing for the game as it's win win. If it's a success then the Aussies missed out and will be interested next time with a full tour of Australia. If it's a failure the GB project can be burried for good and we can get on with normal games as England

    So, what have we learned???

    Walmsley is international class but needs to prove he has overcome his injury.

    Roby should start. The true man of steel this season and never underperforms he is better than hodgson but the Aussies bias is in play....
