Welsh squad for World Cup

We need two halfbacks and two centres ... other than that we are looking fairly promising. I hope Tyson Frizzell has got his recruiting head on.

Doesn't he have a welsh father and Tongan mother? Would be a good move for him to choose Wales ahead of any state of origin aspirations.

I asked that question last year. We'd certainly have him like a shot.

The 2 Evanses at Wire could play centre, assuming the English one sees sense? Halves are a massive worry. Flower, Lloyd and Dudson all seem to be developing nicely, and Wigan are toying with the idea of Lloyd playing centre.

ben flower, gil dudson, rhodri lloyd, jordan james, ben evans, elliott kear, lloyd white, rhys williams, craig kopczak from super league clubs. maybe a recall for phil joseph. tyson frizzel, matt seamark and lee williams from nrl and queensland cup.

i'd expect david james from south wales scorpions to be in the squad.

C'mon Lee Briers. Your country needs you ... again. :)

I wish Matt James had lived up to his earlier promise. He looked like he could have been really good.

Maybe now's his chance.

If Luke Dyer is still playing at a decent level, he could do us a job at centre.
