I like to watch my Rugby League documentaries 'as live' and so I have managed to avoid the results of this tour for the last 12 months. I trust I won't be disappointed with Wayne and the boys.

I'm Welsh and certainly value the Lions and wouldn't want to lose it, or have it simply given over to England. England maybe the lions in terms of squad now, but in the past a decent amount of Welshme

Can we just please let England use the badge and shirt and this whole sorry debacle can be put to one side and we get to please everybody...

you'll love some of the "out of the box" thinking... very modern.

Let's just agree never to talk of that tour again  🤐

Nope. Next time someone wants to resurrect this team, based purely on nostalgia and (an admittedly lovely) badge, I'm going to loudly remind everyone of what an absolute disaster this tour was.

Speaking of which, have the financials been announced yet?

Thank you for the heads up regards this being shown.

Will certainly be a more intriguing watch than 4 days of wayward pitch & putt, a show off in by far the fastest car blubbing how fab he is and those laughable millionaire show ponies flopping on the floor because someone with a fancy haircut had the audacity to attempt tackling them.

Bring it on 👍🏉

Before you watch, you have to remember that PNG are picking guys from the likes of Carcassonne, Doncaster, Townsville Blackhawks, Mackay cutters and Barrow.

Bennett is good, and may have just won State of Origin, but up against that kind of quality, it will ALWAYS be tough. 

You have to question why more PNG players don’t make it into the NRL and Super League when they can compete and win on the International stage.

The presentation was nice and glossy, but my overall feeling was of a tour that was hollow from the outset. There was simply no reason to be playing again as GB, and neither were we playing for anything in particular. That, however, is not the fault of the documentary makers, who I thought did a perfectly decent job.

Why should England have an automatic right to the badge?

Thought that was obvious.. England are the lions and Wales and Scotland won't want it. GB is pretty much England.. if its all about keeping the "iconic history" of the badge and shirt then thats how you would do it.

I'm Welsh and certainly value the Lions and wouldn't want to lose it, or have it simply given over to England. England maybe the lions in terms of squad now, but in the past a decent amount of Welshmen have worn the jersey and formed the identity and memories for many fans. 

A single, poorly organised tour shouldn't distract from decades of rich history. Bring back the GB lions in future, when it can be properly organised. Also, people seem to have a hang up that we lost the games and that's a reason to scrap the lions - I didn't realise the only purpose of the GB lions existence was to win exclusively

Did you read the threads on here before the tour... its not just because we lost

The feeling for not bringing them back and it being pointless has been strong for many for a long time.

I enjoyed John Bentley's contribution, for example one quote from him;

" When I came to RL I was fit.

But I had to lift it again. I suddenly realised these were athletes.

They were far, far, far more athletic and fitter than the RU boys."

Nothing new there and the gap is narrower now. But I think it is a very important point to make, as it is part of what differentiates us from other team sports and good to see in a BBC documentary.

Other sportsmen/women respect RL players  for this and we need to promote it more.

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!
