  1. Very sad, under Howie Tamati they had a good team. Didn't they also beat Auckland a few times?
  2. Wellington league does look pretty sick at the moment. I recall when Wellington played and beat Gt Britain in 1990 and put up a good performance against the mighty Australian team in 1989.
  3. Just as England is looking forward to North America to grow, the French need England to help grow the game in France. It is slowly contracting, I can recall when there were over 100 clubs now there are 60 odd.
  4. If we want more internationals why can't we have both England and Great Britain as was the case in the past. For example in the late 70's and early 80's England, wales and France played each other whilst games against Great Britain v Australia and NZ were played also.
  5. Announced today, 35 man squad, of which 20 (57.1%) are born and bred in Wales. Also Butler though born in England is the grandson of the famous Colin Dixon and Rob Massam moved to Wales at a very young age. Many of the English born players have played in younger age nation Welsh teams. Wales’ 35-man elite train-on squad: Rhys Evans, Dalton Grant, Cobi Green* (all Bradford Bulls), Josh Ralph (Easts Tigers), Chester Bulter, Connor Davies, Curtis Davies, Dan Fleming, Sion Jones (all Halifax), Jake Emmitt (Leigh Centurions), Matty Fozard, Elliot Kear, Rhys Williams (all London Broncos), Lloyd White (Mackay Cutters), Rob Massam (North Wales Crusaders), Caleb Aekins* (Penrith Panthers), Gil Dudson, Luis Roberts* (Salford Red Devils), Regan Grace, Morgan Knowles (both St Helens), Gavin Bennion, Mike Butt, Rhodri Lloyd, Ben Morris (all Swinton Lions), Ben Evans (Toulouse Olympique), Courtney Davies, Elliott Jenkins, Ollie Olds (all unattached), Lewis Hall* (Warrington Wolves), James Olds (West Brisbane Panthers), Morgan Evans, Matthew Morgan*, Steve Parry, Liam Rice-Wilson* (all West Wales Raiders), Ben Flower (Wigan Warriors)
  6. Bennett helped NZ win the 2008 World Cup with an Aussie half, Nathan Fien, I think it's his blueprint for success.
  7. Here's some information from June 19 from the Chasing Kangaroos Podcast: https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/anchor-podcasts/chasing-kangaroos/e/62022058
  8. Looking at the 2000 World Cup from memory maybe 3 players in the squad, 2 of which, Moriarty and Devereaux, were drafted in late in the tournament. Compared to the 2017 World Cup when the 24 man squad were about 42% born and bred Welsh Rugby League players. This after over a half a dozen certain selections were left at home unavailable. Wales is tracking in the right direction.
  9. A consistent performer for London Broncos, very underrated player. Also portrays a great image of the game in London. What are people's thoughts on him.
  10. A comic about rugby league by Keith Mason, does anyone know more about this. He has big plans for it. Talks about it here and also his career: https://www.talkingwithtk.com/single-post/Keith-Mason
  11. All these players in the NRL will give England a massive chance at the 2021 World Cup.
  12. I read where the crowd was a new record for the stadium of 3,800 beating London Irish's record of 3200.
  13. What was official attendance at Broncos v Saints game? I've seen 2,801 and 3,800 a new record...anyone know the official number?
