On first glance, there was no Andrew Johns, Nathan Hindmarsh, Gordon Tallis (recently retired), Wendall Sailor, Jamie Lyon or Lote Tuquiri.

I don't think Shannon Heggarty, Craig Wing, Phil Bailey, Steve Simpson or Luke Ricketson were in this class?

Andrew Johns has a habit of not being available for internationals (he has missed more than 50% of internationals). Tallis as you mentioned retired so he could not be considered as first choice. Wendall Sailor and Tuquiri because they were contracted to the ARU, Hindmarsh was only became an automatic pick for the Kangaroos in 2004, up until the 2003 series just how many appearances had Lyon made for the the Kangaroos ? Of those you listed only Johns was a current automatic pick.

If that squad played england in a 3 test series today it is like the England team would lose at least 2 of the 3 tests and by noticeably heavier margins.

That's all supposing though. We don't know what would have happened this year because the Aussies couldn't be arsed.
