I know the thread title says if we are picking the team now... but I will go with a team hoping that everyone is fit, healthy and in-form at the end of the year. 1. Sam Tomkins 2. Tommy Maki

Off the top of my head how about : evalds johnstone griffin Newman makinson/manfredi   connor williams Lees mcshane watts currie ashurs

Sorry Harry he really isn’t . Let’s have a balance here . Noone is saying he’s one of the best players in the world and he plays in the NRL so he must be a superstar , despite that getting  thrown out

I'd go with.

1. Tomkins
2. Makinson
3. Gildart
4. Watkins
5. Farnworth
6. Williams
7. Widdop
8. Watts
9. Roby
10. Walmsley
11. Whitehead
12. Currie
13. Bateman

Bench: T. Burgess, Thompson, Clarke, McMeeken

Leaving out Josh Hodgson due to long term injury.

Nobody on here is actually selecting the team they're just giving their own preferences. We all have slightly differing views on who should play.

I haven't give mine yet because I keep changing my mind!

I think theres a few spots where preferences will be marginal. For instance i really like Manfredi as a player, but am not convinced he's back to his best yet, hence opting for Makinson on the right wing.

Johnstone also probably deserves a chance, but i really like the look of Herbie Farnworth.

We do have some good options in some positions.

I’m fairly sure Wane posts on here, he’s little else to do with his day, he’s a full time coach of a team that doesn’t train or play.

Are you trying to be funny or just ruin it for everyone else? 

People called Romans they go the house

Centre is the hardest position to defend and you've picked a winger there. Madness.

I’m not sold on any of our centres at international level . Im going on the attack . We’ve tried to be conservative and win by defence and structure to many times  , it hasn’t worked . Score points and get on the front foot . Not madness at all . You have to play outside the box to beat australia . Throw stuff at them - not contain them .Wed have won the WC if we did . Both Manfredi and Farnworth are big , strong , fast and can move well laterally and defend . And they’re attacking weapons more importantly . Australia pick their best players to get them out there , I’m doing that . I looked at the centres and thought these blokes are better so I shoved them in . I like my side so there
