  1. Thanks for that. I suppose that the authorities of the various nations are waiting for the upcoming World Cup draw before deciding who to arrange matches against
  2. Aside from the Kangaroos' tour of England. have the dates for any other international matches this year been announced yet?
  3. Sorry, Tony Banham! ? I think that he later went on to play for Huyton
  4. The Huyton shirts look like my old school P.E. kit! I've got the match day programme from this game and the comments in the club notes section are just as scathing, but refreshingly honest, about the Dons as Geoff Fletcher is towards his men: "So it goes on, defeat after defeat. The last two defeats st Swinton and Keighley being particularly bad with the opposition being allowed to score practically at will due to some feeble tackling, especially in the backs." The front cover also has a fantastic illustration of the late, great Barry Banham who scores the match-winning try.
  5. Have Fiji's fixtures for 2020 been confirmed yet?
  6. Did the Welsh Men's international team play any matches in 2019?
  7. Is there due to be a European Championship between Ireland. Scotland, Wales and France next year? It's incredible that Ireland has never won this event, particularly after their brilliant performances at the 2017 World Cup
  8. Can Fiji make it to their first World Cup Final after three successive semi-final defeats to Australia? They performed strongly this year winning all three tests, but I was hoping that Semi Radrada might return RL
  9. The US needs to be qualifying for World Cups in order to grow the game there. A successful national team is what inspires youngsters to take up a sport. If this means using mainly heritage players in the short-term then that's what should be done. I think that this is what they need to return to.
  10. Yes, the Tomahawks was a great name and things haven't been the same for the team since it changed. The 2013 World Cup jerseys were fantastic! What most concerned me from watching the WC qualifier against the Cook Islands was both the physical condition of the US players and the embarrassing shortage of spectators. It looked as though nobody really cares for the sport in the US anymore and they were merely just fulfilling the fixture and that's a real shame
  11. What on earth has happened to the US national team?! After a fantastic World Cup debut in 2013 where they reached the quarter-final vs Australia (a game I had a ticket for but didn't see due to getting stuck in traffic queueing for a Steam Fair!), they followed this up with a dismal showing in 2017 and now failure to qualify for the next tournament. On top of this, they lost the rights to host the 2025 competition and are now 18th in the World Rankings. Where has it all gone wrong?
