  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. The problem is with the Titans is their halves are so bad they always take the wrong option. Watkins rarely gets the ball early and the only player who passes to Watkins is Cartwright.
  13. McMeeken has that big, athletic physique that NRL clubs love, I think he would be suited to the NRL
  14. No and he was never Tim Sheens' assistant at Wests Tigers, he was their stats man. Sheens' assistants were Royce Simmons and then Steve Georgallis.
  15. The England coach said that SL clubs should be looking to give an opportunity to these Welsh kids.
  16. England should pick 6 props in the WC squad James Graham Chris Hill Eorl Crabtree George B Tom B Luke B or Alex Walmsley
  17. Good news, i look forward to seeing him play, there is enough time for him to push for a World Cup spot
  18. How does everyone access each English qualified players chances ? Sam Tomkins - definite Darrell Goulding - probably Martin Gleeson - probably Paul Deacon - with Eastmond out, he could be an outsider given his good kicking and passing game. Sean O'Loughlin - definite Joel Tomkins - definite Liam Farrell - not just yet but one for the future. Stuart Fielden - definite Mick McIllorum - just misses out, wouldn't let anyone down. Andy Coley - is worthy of a place, one of the form props. Paul Prescott - just misses out, much improved.
  19. It's that old English obsession with imports, they have to win all the awards. Sam Tomkins was the best player by a mile.
  20. Based on Chris Flannery's performance again, why are English clubs so obssessed with signing imports ? And no, Thomas Leuluai was not the best player on the field, Sam Tomkins was by a mile.
  21. Good side but i'd have Gossard before Baitieri, i've seen plenty of Baitieri and i'm not sure if he will be able to step up to this level.
  22. Some times players just don't kick on for various reasons but he was a very good player at junior level, hopefully he gets his career back on track at Wakey.
