  1. Good luck to him. He will certainly add a bit of clout in the middle.
  2. He isn't good enough. If TWP are even thinking about picking over the Saracens squad, they would be better going for a forward like Will Skelton - a huge dude who played RL as a teenager. Sure, he probably needs some stamina work, but he would certainly appeal to the Lamport crowd.
  3. I'm a big fan of Akauola. Clarke is outstanding, too. And if his knee doesn't go, there are few more devastating runners than BMM. But, I just don't rate the props as highly. Second row is middling - I feel for Ben Currie because I don't think he's ever fully got over the injury.
  4. Oooh, now that's a bit more controversial! Overall, Warrington have one of the best backlines, and Hurrell is an extraordinary centre.
  5. No. Not in the pack. Nor Leeds or (gasp) Warrington.
  6. That really isn't a poor set of forwards. They will hold their own against a great many others. It ain't Saints, admittedly, but there are half a dozen teams I'd rank lower up front.
  7. Anthony Joshua (as a prop). Adam Gemili (full back or wing because of speed). Ben Stokes (stand off, for attitude).
  8. Mid table. They are better together than the sum of their parts. In fact, I'll go with an outside chance of top 5.
  9. Yes. And it will only change when they've been given a Basil Fawlty 'good, hard thrashing' by England.
  10. Better (both in practice and the overall result) it could not have been for every competition. England and Samoa as an opener sets the tone as well as any possible match up, and I very much look forward to being at St James Park. Awesome.

  12. Doubt that will be necessary. There is plenty of raw rugby talent down here. I would imagine in the medium term the place will add to the player pool, not drain it.
  13. On paper, Hull have the best this year. No way Warrington 3rd - not enough grunt to get through the heavier weather. Toronto should definitely be top half.
  14. This is equity release stuff. Bad move. If you own metaphorical land or property, don't sell unless your life depends upon it or you can get more than it is conceivably worth to a fool. And then buy more back.
