  1. Leading SL try assists and a standout in a depleted Leeds team, with another very good performance today. With Gale injured, Brown retired and Williams under par this year, is Myler a shoe in for a starting berth in Denver?
  2. I have come across a signed photo of the 1932 English rugby leauge team photo while cleaning out my deceased great grandms house. I am curious to see its value and where my best spot would be to sell it
  3. Just a thread for general views of the world cup in reflection and what we can learn from it now its all over. From an England perspective, lots of good points. Positive tournemant and positive camp. Only downsides would be the left centre which needs improvement. Plenty of talent in this side - perhaps we've got to lose one to win one. From a tournemant hosting view, Australia will have to make some pretty good guarantees on promotion of games for it to get another tournemant in the next 10-15 years. If England and especially the USA and Canada deliver on crowds this will only highlight the failings further. Also as we've found this year, games need to be scheduled not to clash with eachother and could have been done smarter in that regards. Two 5am KOs for England didn't help with awareness. Thankfully with all the games being on the beeb in 2021 the Wales and Scotland will get more exposure too. Finally! What a great celebration of TGG from around the world, Fijian passion, the emergence of Ireland and Lebanon as genuine test quality opposition, and who could forget Tonga. The message is simple: more please!
  4. Sirs/Madams, I'm working on a song adaptation to be casually performed in the privacy of my own home before kick off tomorrow morning and I wondered if you could advise me regarding how many years of hurt we've had. I mean to say how many years is it since England RL, or GB, won anything? Thanks in advance for your assistance in this matter. One lion on a shirt Barrière still gleaming BLANK years of hurt Never stopped me dreaming
  5. Been following the selections for the state of origin and one thing that leaps out at me is how they seem comfortable selecting their talented players out of position. Whisper the possibility of this on here for England and you'll be shouted down and feel like apologising for being so stupid. Our national team went crazily the wrong way a decade ago with I think 5 loose forwards in a team at one point, and we us avoiding picking any natural stand offs for series after series, so that's where I suspect most of our aversion comes from understandably. That being said, I think we'd be shortsighted not to even consider trying to find places for our best players who might happen to play the club game in the same positions. Perhaps by the end of the year we will be looking at some of our best players being Hardaker, Tomkins, Gale, Widdop and Williams, for instance, whereas we might be struggling to fill some other positions. For me it's about the overall blend of the team and getting the right balance rather than dogmatically sticking to rigid club positions or going the other way entirely. Form and fitness permitting (v early days for Tomkins) I'd have all 5 of the above stars in the 17 rather than picking someone else who is solid rather than spectacular. No doubt plenty will dispute these are actually stars but that shouldn't devalue the overall suggestion that perhaps we can play a player or two out of position for the national team. If it's good enough for QLD and NSW...
  6. After sticking a wedge on England to beat Samoa by over 16 points (close one, thanks Jermane McGillvary!) at the bookies, turns out I wont enough to pay for a flight to OZ for the World Cup!! Get in. Without wanting this to sound like a dating ad, I'm a Manc, 34, well travelled and thought i'd put a message out to see if anyone else fancies making the trip over there? Whilst I will fly it solo if I need to, in my experience its always better to have someone share the journey with so you can meet up later down the road for a few pints and talk about the time when (hopefully) we watched England win the World Cup live in Australia!! I don't have a solid plan, going to wait a few days until I book flights to see replies to this ad, but ideally i'd want to go to all the games,so that would be about 5 weeks, probably travelling around by coach, hitch-hiking, camping, hostels etc. I am flexible on most of this though. If you don't have a sense of adventure/humour, usually order blue WKD's in the pub or prefer 'kick and clap' rugby, then you probably shouldn't reply. But anybody else interested, drop me a message and lets see if we can get something sorted out. COME ON ENGLAND!! Chris
  7. Frank Pritchard is out of the mid-season test, but eligibility changes give Samoa their strongest squad ever. England as underdogs? Samoa could give the whole World Cup a shake if they can develop some of these combinations. Shout out if I've missed any: 1. Young Tonumaipea 2. David Nofoaluma 3. Joey Leilua 4. Tim Lafai 5. Antonio Winterstein 6. Ben Roberts 7. Anthony Milford 8. Sam Kasiano 9. Kaysa Pritchard 10. Junior Paulo 11. Sia Soliola 12. Sione Mata'utia 13. Josh McGuire 14. Leeson Ah Mau 15. Jesse Sue 16. Issac Liu 17. Nu Brown Leilua, McGuire seem most likely to get Aussie call-ups. Kasiano might get NZ interest. But there's plenty of depth. NRL: Pat Vai Vai, Kirisome Au'ava, Frank Winterstein, Raymond Faitala-Mariner, Bunty Afoa, Sam Lisone, Ken Maumalo, Peter Mata'utia, Pat Mata'utia, Chanel Mata'utia, Daniel Vidot, Matt Wright, Peta Godinet, Erin Clark, Mason Lino SL: Krisnan Inu, Harrison Hanson, Willie Isa, Junior Moors, Lama Tasi. Thomas Lealuai has Samoan heritage so might be a veteran presence if overlooked by NZ.
  8. Am quite excited about the mid season international given how well the league is going this year and the form of some of our Aussie based players. We have some great centres in Sarg, Percy, Olly, and Shenton - but they are all left-sided players. All with good left foot steps and right arm fends. And in the half backs we have real talent and form with Widdop, Gale and Williams - but they are all left-sides players too. All playing very similarly down the left with the occasional foray down the middle or right only. Even when you think about some of the other options like Brown, McGuire or even Bateman and Currie these too are lefties. So much slimmer pickings down the right with only the likes of Smith, Ratchford and the ultimate curate's egg Watkins. The only ones who can play anywhere across the width appear to be ball-playing locks or full backs. Odd that the game has evolved that way rather than inside and outside players, and I am not sure who of the above would best placed to become either a rightie or a free-roaming player.
  9. In July 2017, England Universities will take part in the Student Rugby League World Cup which takes place in Sydney, Australia. The team is made up of the best student Rugby League players in the country and participation in the squad is self-funded. Each player and member of the volunteer coaching and management team is responsible for raising money for themselves to cover UK-based training and friendly games, kit and equipment, flights, accommodation, travel, insurance and tournament participation fees. The whole squad will be working hard to fundraise the £110k needed for the trip through selling sponsorship, Community Game Raffle Tickets and staging events, but all donations will go a long way to reducing the cost of taking part in the tournament for the players. England Universities Head Coach, Colin Baker, said: "Please give generously and play your part in sending England Universities Rugby League Team to the Student Rugby League World Cup in 2017! "The student game has been a rich source of players for both the professional and regonal leagues and is one of the major recruitment areas into our game. "Anyone who witnessed the Student Rugby League World Cup in 2013 will know the quality of the competition and the importance of helping our England team as prepared as it can be!"

  15. Hi guys. Im a big Kiwis fan and also a fan of international rugby league. Like many others i'm looking forward to this years 3 test series between us and England. I post on a New Zealand league forum and am trying to build hype with a thread covering info on this series. The only thing is im not to familiar with the English players or what the make up of the squad will actually be. I would love to be able to post info about the england team as well to generate more discussion for our site and give everyone on it some familiarity in players, team etc before the start of the series. Could you guys help me in anyway with who potential players will be, whos contesting for spots etc. I know the NRL Pommy players but still need to learn more about the Super League based players. Thanks
