Good idea imho, as long as we don’t play NZ again. Would like to see a test against Fiji or maybe Tonga. 

Good idea in principle but as ever it’s getting the NRL sides to release players , and the various means they have of keeping them there

They might if it was on an origin weekend?

It would be something special to get Tonga here . With Australia to come it would be the best prep

France. Away. No brainer. 

Ultimatum to the French to sort their shti out or no more playing with the big boys.

My God, I hope not. 

Rather see England play the England Knights than play them.

The Saints game vs Wire has been moved from 25th June to 28th June as a result of a planned International weekend. The 2nd State of Origin is planned for Sunday 21st June.

England are due to play on the same weekend as Origin and the Pacific test matches. Saints v Wire was down for Thursday 25th, so its been moved to the Sunday to allow players returning from international duty more time to recover.

If a home match was played at say Leeds a 20K crowd would mean enough money earnt to fly Tonga over - I'm sure the fans would turn out in force to see that game.

Looks like England flying to Oz so expect a poor crowd out there.

Its always the issue. Everything has to be on the NRL's terms or it doesn't happen.
