  1. How do you think a consortium from Spain could best help with that?
  2. Australia could still select Kikau and Vunivalu after they've lived there for 5 years straight. So it could occur again.
  3. Brandon Wakeham looked good in the Pacific test and has debuted in the NRL this year. He could be the key. Radradra not so much, great player and all all but they're fairly stacked for wingers already.
  4. For a squad spot? Nothing wrong with looking to the future, there's a good chance within 5 years he will be the best back England has. I do agree though Knights and 9's would be a good compromise.

  6. Herbie Farnworth would be worth a squad spot for experience.
  7. If you want to put it that way the England brand has been around for 115 years.
  8. Might want to do some research and drop Wales out of you last sentence.
  9. Your entire argument is a based on a 'tickle'. Funny I don't see any more interest on here for the recent shirt unveiling or the upcoming tour than I've seen for any England shirt launch or tour tournament in the past 10 years.
  10. What actually got tricky though? Nigel Wood missing the touch of blue on the shirt?
  11. Have you got any sort of evidence to back that up though? Not saying you're wrong but that seems a very debatable subject. England seemed to be doing well, getting some big crowds, not like interest plummeted when they made the switch. Were things really any better as GB&I or is it just a classic case of people remembering things being better than they actually were?
  12. If so what a waste of time building the England brand for 10+ years. Enjoy the nostalgia trip that benifits nobody but Hummel and shirt collectors. What's the grand plan for England? Pull the brand back out of the trash just in time for the home world cup then disappear again for 4 years?
  13. It isn't Super League is it? Plenty of competitions in the world give the highest ranked team home advantage in a final. I'd suggest the difference is Super League grand final has demand that far outstrips any club's home capacity. Re: Saints, I don't believe they should no. Nor do I believe Toronto or Toulouse should if they lose a playoffs game. If they win and are the highest rank I don't see an issue with giving them a home final as a reward for dominating all other teams in the regular season. Until the Championship final can regularly demand 20k+ I don't think it's justified moving it to a neutral venue larger than any club home ground.
  14. Totally agree, hopefully it gets thrown out the door again after this year only to return if Wales and Scotland ever get to the point where they have players worthy of selection.. and even then it shouldn't be more than once every 8-10 years.
  15. Where do you consider a neutral venue if you have clubs from France and Canada? If you get either Toulouse or Toronto in the final then anywhere in England will be a disadvantage to them. Which isn't right if they've finished higher than the English team they play in the final. So what's the solution?
