Well we might not have won the league for almost 40 years but I would always take an England World Cup win over the SL. The World Cup win would hopefully bring the sport some much deserved publicity and exposure to the general public in this country.

England win World Cup. Though if I supported a team what didnt win much instead of Saints I might think differently (in football I’d take a Norwich premier league win over an England World Cup win any day).

Number 1. every day of the week. Over 10 titles and WCC wins.

10? Really? 

I want England to do well but I'd be bought out if I could be guaranteed 3 SL titles for Broncos.... 

In fact I'd argue it might do more for the growth of the game overall if London had a period of dominance and success rather than England

I think that is part of it for me

If I were Leeds or something I guess the shine wouldn't be as shiny

To be fair, I am not really the right target audience for this question as I have little affiliation/support with a club side these days and so my answer was a little hyperbolic trying to emphasize how important I think international success would be for the sport in this country. 

And I agree, a few Super League titles for London would also be a real boost (but I would probably still take the World Cup win on balance).

I will go for a GB test series win down under in 2024, that is a much bigger test for the player's than the WC, bettering the Aussies in a 3 match series and on their own midden nothing comes nowhere near for me.

Nope, I’m selfish and want to see Saints win as much as possible, as often as possible. 

While a World Cup won would do more for the game, I’m not really bothered by England/GB and just see it as a nice distraction rather than anything else.

I’ve thought deeply about this and I’ve decided I’ll give up my team winning SL and the WCC in the very near future ... and say England to win the WC

Choice #1, every time. It benefits everyone in the game, especially if the RWC final opponents are Australia. And yes, it'd probably benefit Australia too.

To be honest, if things changed, and GB entered the RWC instead of England and won it, that would still be my choice ahead of individual club glory. No matter that it wouldn't be the first time for GB.

The icing on the cake would be if Gus Gould, Bobby Fulton, Ken Arthurson and Bill Harrigan were all sitting together and the camera zoomed in on them at the final hooter. :kolobok_cool:

GB ones should be separate, especially as the 2 blokes who've captained 2 British World cup winning sides have been Scottish and Welsh!

Not as bad as Russia claiming the USSRs medals from the Olympics when teams, such as football, were 80%+Ukrainian

How come? Should Scotland and Wales be considered the same team as GB as well?

I've seen my team win grand finals, lose grand finals, win challenge cups, lose challenge cups, win world club challenges, lose world club challenges and win League leaders shields at the death.

Yet my biggest 2 heartbreaks are Watkins being ankle tapped in 2017 and Johnson scoring at the death in 2013 at Wembley. I'd take an England world cup win every time
