I think... Yeah nostalgia is a strange old thing isn't it? Looking at the last GB squad ever picked it really doesn't look that rosy and in my opinion England are a far stronger team today. I actually forgot all about wingers like Gardner, Hodgson and Raynor in my post earlier. There are probably another half dozen fairly average club players in that squad too: Fullback - Paul Wellens - St. Helens Wing - Ade Gardner - St. Helens Wing - Gareth Raynor - Hull Wing - David Hodgson - Salford Centre - Keith Senior - Leeds Centre - Kirk Yeaman - Hull Centre - Martin Gleeson - Warrington Stand-off - Kevin Sinfield - Leeds Stand-off - Leon Pryce -St. Helens Scrum-half - Rob Burrow - Leeds Scrum-half - Danny McGuire - Leeds Hooker - James Roby - St. Helens Hooker - Jon Clarke - Warrington Hooker - Terry Newton - Bradford Prop - Jamie Peacock - Leeds Prop - Adrian Morley - Warrington Prop - Maurie Fa'asavalu - St. Helens Prop - James Graham St. Helens Prop - Sam Burgess - Bradford Second-row - Gareth Ellis - Leeds Second-row - Jamie Jones-Buchanan - Leeds Second-row - Jon Wilkin - St. Helens Loose forward - Sean O'Loughlin (Captain) -Wigan Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
