London Origin team

Recommended Posts

So if London (including the south of england) had an origin team how would it shape up and how would it compete with a Yorkshire or Lancashire team.

That's my team below, actually quite decent I'm just missing pivots. Any ideas? 

1. Alex Walker

2. Kieran Dixon

3. Dan Sarginson 

4. Josh Griffin

5. Tuoyo Egodo 

6.

7.

8. Jamie Acton

9.

10. Lewis Bienek

11. McCarthy-Scarsbrook 

12. Mike Mcmeekan 

13. Tony Clubb

When did he move to Wigan? 

Not sure what age he was ... a quick google search would suggest no more than about 4-5

Sam Tomkins born in MK .... No.6?

How close do you want to be, a quick google says it is 58 miles from MK to London, add another 10 miles to that and you virtually take in on route 18 pro clubs between St Helens and Castleford.

Opening post said London and South - I count MK as South.

I count anything below the Humber as south.

OK fair comment, I misread only saw the London Origin Team.

I think this is a good idea. Sport is so much about events/experiences now (look at how NFL is pushing the London market, very successfully I might say). With the right backing, venue and publicity (fat chance, eh?) a game played in London could get a fair bit of attention.

Bryan, Bishay and Dollapi are at Skolars but all have SL experience.  Bishay and Dollapi particularly didn't look out of place at SL level.

When I worked in Durham City, two of my staff went to see a rock band perform at Sheffield Arena because "they are not playing in the north; that is the closest they are getting to the north"  Everything is relative!

They were right. Sheffield is south of the Humber as I said previously.

South is definitely relative to location,I always believe I'm in the south when I pass forton services, seriously once you've got the London origin team sorted send them up to cumbria for a run out
