Wales 40 England 10 at Taffs Wll RFC.

If that's against super league u18's players and not the england community amatuers that's an amazing result.

No, it was against the community amateurs (ie England Community Lions)

Still a good result, hope there was some scouts from super league clubs at the match.

They played very well, good discipline and good running lines.

Surely it's a great result regardless of whether they were facing SL academy talent or not?

Don't forget, some people argue (and genuinely believe) that kids in the RL areas are just naturally more gifted at RL than outsiders.

I don't think that they do.  There is an argument that having played RL from an early age can lead to them being greater tacticians and more worldly wise, but more naturally gifted? Really?

Garry Schofield has said so several times. And judging by the agreement he gets on twitter, he isn't alone.

I'd suggest that the constituency of people that agree with Schoey isn't as large as the one that thinks he talks a lot of mince, from what I've seen.

Probably not. I'm just saying that there are people out there who do think like that. That's why they argue for keeping RL in West Yorkshire and bits of Lancashire.

There's certainly a high proportion of RL fans who think it is 'naturally' a northern game, or a working class one, and who find any variation on that a little weird.
