  1. Leeds Rhinos are building a really strong squad with a lot of depth for 2022.
  2. How is Gavin Marguerite playing these days, would he be worth a place in the squad ?
  3. I think that’s a pretty fair structure, hopefully the Giants can sign one or two more top players in addition to Shona Hoyle. They are a young side so a bit more experience would be handy. Can’t wait to see how Erin Stott & Amelia Brown go next season.
  4. I think England will be much stronger when Georgia Roche returns from injury at halfback. Lots of credit to France who I believe have only played twice in 4 years. A few of their players impressed and they just need regular games to build on. England is improving their depth which is good to see, most of their forward pack from the PNG series were unavailable for this tour.
  5. I think you can add York Knights into the mix too, they are adding a couple more quality players soon and they’re squad is very young so they’ll push Leeds & Saints. Other clubs will know they need to invest more to compete.
  6. I think Emma Hardy (York) & Ellie Oldroyd (Rhinos) can break into the squad next season.
  7. Leeds Rhinos were without Tara Moxon, Eloise Hayward, Shannon Lacey, Danielle Anderson, Amy Johnson, Ellie Oldroyd, Elycha Watson & Adoaha Akwiwu.
  8. I’d love to see teams in the bottom half sign one or two Aussies/Kiwis to help them out. The NRLW doesn’t normally start until September so there is a window of opportunity there.
  9. Well done to Leeds Rhinos coach Lois Forsell for not making excuses because they never mentioned once that they had 8 top line players out injured and most of them England Internationals. Heard a rumour a former women of steel is joining the Rhinos for 2022.
  10. The Giants have a youngster on the wing who should win rookie of the year. Amelia Brown has been a revelation.
  11. Shame it’s probably too late but it would’ve been good to see a few top players have a short stint in women’s super league.
  12. Yorkshire number 11 plays for Wigan, he’s been out for a while and I think that was his first game in a while but he is class, the best all round player in the uk at that age level. Matthew Nicholson
  13. I want to see Hull now giving an opportunity to Jude Fereirra or Davy Litten, looking to the future because Mahe Fonua just isn’t performing, he looks too slow and makes too many errors.
  14. I’d like to hear opinions on who stood out or impressed, for me Chantelle Crowl was really strong coming on from the bench. England’s bench we’re all very good.
  15. I’d like to see Wales next game be v France, also hoping Cardiff do well in the Super League South. They play their first match next weekend
  16. If anyone thinks England have an advantage that is wrong. NRL clubs sign the best from New Zealand and put them through school which makes them eligible to play schoolboys for Australia. Star Toa was in the Aussie team having only lived in Oz for barely 12 months. Benji Marshall Kevin Proctor Thomas Mickaeli the list goes on. Xavier Coates played at the championships but missed out on selection in the final squad.
  17. Slight correction to original post, of the 2018 Aussie team. 8 have played NRL. Tesi Niu - Brisbane Broncos & Tonga Stephen Crichton - Penrith Panthers Bradman Best - Newcastle Knights Star Toa - Newcastle Knights Jason Saab - Dragons now Manly Tommy Talau - Wests Tigers Tom Dearden - Brisbane Broncos Matt Doorey - Canterbury Bulldogs A few others from that squad are expected to play some NRL this coming season
  18. Dom Young was supposed to go to Melbourne Storm for a Summer training camp where they could have a close look at him unfortunately for Dom he broke his foot and had to miss the opportunity.
  19. I got a couple wrong because of spelling mistakes, one was the quiz answered Jenna Welsby and I’m pretty sure her name is Jenny. I put Katie Hepworth, quiz answer was Katherine.
  20. This looks likely to be called off which is a massive shame, for Lewis Dodd, Umyla Hanley, Josh Thewliss etc to test themselves against the Aussie boys was one of the things I was looking forward to most in 2020.
  21. Farnworth is an outstanding prospect, he is athletic, skilful, fast and has a great work ethic. His agility is second to none and he is the fittest player at the Broncos. Look out Tommy Makinson & Tom Johnstone etc because I think Herbie will be in the World Cup squad next year if he stays fit.
  22. Bit of a shame Watkins is at the Titans, imagine playing outside a bunch of z graders in Taylor, Roberts & Cartwright fed by Peats and Rein. Those guys haven’t got a clue how to create space or put someone through a gap.
  23. Farnworth didn’t get many minutes but he was really solid, the thing that impressed me most was when he saved a try and then on the next tackle he saved another try in the corner.
