How much are we gonna hear about Marc Sneyd's kicking style during this world cup?

If it becomes a talking point for fans, influencers and/or broadcasters who are new to the game, they can mention it as much as they like.

Is it only me finding it hard to watch? I can't cope thinking we're gonna lose another decent player to injury 😬.

Are you an NRL club coach? :kolobok_wink:

This Watkins/Young partnership on the right hand side has much potential.

Shame he’s not strictly English.

I don't think here's come here just to dance...

Sky Sports Jenna Brooks to Jake Connor regarding England selection : "Shaun Wane has said that he's spoken to you about why you were left out, he's also said he's told you what you needed to do more of, I'm interested, what do you need to do more of and did you do it tonight?"

Jake Connor : "I don't know, to be honest I haven't spoken to him."

I dunno I just have a feeling (which is of course illogical) that we're gonna lose another decent player through injury. We've already lost a couple of really good ones.

Andy Ackers gets a great international debut try on his home ground!

Well done young man.

So have Australia, New Zealand etc. If you have that worry, then the whole preceding season must have been a nail-biter.

Or your star player could come through everything unscathed, then get injured in the first minute of a proper RWC match.

Worry less, drink beer more.

Second phase or quick ptb and Ackers is a real threat , I love a hooker like that 

Best watch the rest of this game before getting involved in your fantasies.

I know it's illogical, just borne out of a desire to see have a chance.

An injury to one player is also an opportunity for someone else.
