I'd certainly like to see more of Farnworth's attacking skills on that side.

That's really not the issue mate. 

I'll reserve judgment 'til I see evidence.

Dom Young looks better in this than any stunt I've seen him for the Knights 

Was thinking the same thing but he's revelling in the opportunity.

Good half from England.  They look dangerous, particularly when Welsby shifts to the short side to create a 3 on 2 or 4 on 3.

But the zero next to the opposition is probably the most important factor.

Absolute peach of a kick from Sneyd. 

All he does is...

Seriously though, how do people feel about him v Oz and the Kiwis?

Is he worth selection with his kicking game?

"When I saw the Pistols and The Clash I realised it didn't seem that difficult, they didn't seem like they could play very well either, so the thing was to form a band then work it out. We didn't even know who was going to play what - we passed around all the instruments until we found what we were comfortable with. I wasn't comfortable with any of them so I became the singer."

No. They have world class players like Kikau and Koroisau to come in.

But you can only play what is in front of you.

No Kikau, Korisau, Sivo.. But you would hope Fiji have to have better than this.

There are some top NRL players to come in. But there are some top players in this match-day squad.

I know some of you would choke on the words, but maybe... just maybe... England aren't total and utter rubbish?

It is no where England’s full strength squad too so you really can’t use that excuse on either team.

I'm not excusing anything.  Just answering a question.
