  1. Mine would be Dr Hook and anything early Queen. Whenever I hear these the first thing I think of is long car journeys.
  2. So you think having these teams come in and taking players to run one team is diluting the English game. You’re answer to this is for them to run three teams.
  3. Watson and Ward for me I think if the team can retain the solidity it’s gained under Bennet then coaches with a slightly more attacking philosophy like these two are the way to go.
  4. You could bring out the unicorn when you win the league.
  5. Lots on the GB team made their international debut before their NRL one.
  6. Are Scotland not disadvantaged with having Coote playing for GB while they have qualifiers on.
  7. No need route 62 runs from Canada through New York all the way to Mexico. Jobs done already.
  8. Spot on we’ve seen Hardaker at centre a number of times and he’s never looked comfortable yet.
  9. 1/ Davies 2/ Ledger 3/ Meninga 4/ Hanley 5/ Offiah 6/ Kenny 7/ Holding 8/ Ward 9/ Cunningham 10/ Gorley 11/ Sculphorpe 12/ Morley 13/ Pinner
  10. That’s a choice you make I have no interest or very little in RU and guess what it’s very easy then to not hear or see anything about the sport. Football you can’t get away from but any other sport you can completely avoid if you choose.
  11. My favourite team would be very different to the one I’ve picked.
  12. Think that’s the point I could name 10 props and 15 second rows with not a massive amount between them. Just felt Tallis at his best and watching Pearce on that tour left a bigger impression.
  13. I think a lot comes down to personnel choice I’m happy I wouldn’t change most of that team unless there’s someone obvious I’ve forgot. I think the players that I’m not 100% committed to and could easily of selected some else are 10,11 and twelve
  14. 1/ Lockyer 2/ Offiah 3/ Meninga 4/ Inglis 5/ Ferguson 6/ Kenny 7/ Thurston 8/ Ward 9/ Smith 10/ Webcke 11/ Pearce 12/ Tallis 13/ Hanley
  15. In fact Hastings in the Wigan game was worse because he just stood there. We’ve been shown the laws that state he must immediately retreat to the back of the scrum.
  16. Yes it is whataboutery that’s the point you can’t referee a sport a certain way for twenty years and then suddenly decide you will penalise offences in grand final that refs have completely ignored. I have no problem with the interpretation changing and this being enforced but for me you would have to stop the loose forward/hooker playing the ball until the scrum half has got back onside.
  17. Because it never happens most times the hooker has passed the ball out of the back of the scrum before the scrum half has even stood up straight.
  18. I don’t disagree technically but the fact I haven’t seen a scrum half give a penalty away for this in 25 years tells me this is not something refs are looking for. Maybe they should but I’m not sure a grand final is when that should start.
  19. Lots of players are offside during a game at different points as long as they don’t get involved the game carries on. Can you remember the last time you saw a scrum half penalised for not retreating at the scrum.
