Re: Owen Farrell

Luther Burrell and Wire written all over it....too old, too risky and too much money involved! No I disagree. He's played the game at youth level and knows the rules/tactics. If he did come, it would be as a cameo in a couple of years. He could put "bums on seats" as it were. The biggest ...

Re: Mago to Wakefield

There are more rumours that we are interested in one of Medlockes favourite props, Martin Taupau! What I can’t get my head round is, we’ve let a young Wigan 24 year old prop leave, Partington, then it’s rumoured about Mago who is 27, 28 in December a prop in his prime leaving for a championship sid...

Re: No progress for international RL despite RLWC

Imo there are 2 ways RL could, or rather should, go in the UK. The first one is that you accept it will never be a game played beyond it's "traditional" boundaries. The game goes semi-professional and the best players go to the NRL. International RL is dominated by Aus/NZ/Samoa/Tonga with ...

Re: England Vs Samoa

It was a really frustrating game. Our attack seemed really disorganised most of the game, when we did get Field position we panicked a little and just pushed it too far, execution was just off. I think it was telling that in a tough game we didn't have a experienced controlling half. Lomax would ha...

Re: England Vs Samoa

Typical British rugby league fan crack, win a couple of games convincingly and all of a sudden we are the saviours of the game (I was thinking that as well), but as usual the standard of the British game shines through, oh well that's all that done and dusted and thank god we won't suffer the embar...

Re: England Vs Samoa

Welsby was very poor, as was Watkins (who was playing with a knock to say the least). Tbh I think Welsbyh was injured for the last 15 too. Unfortunately the bench didn't cover this (unless you think Bateman to centre is acceptable in an international team). Samoa picked out McIllorum in defence. The...

Re: England Vs Samoa

Really? so the really costly defensive errors are nothing to so with it? Just Wanes team pick . Semi final rugby and Watkins dropped the ball on a certain try. Dom Young dropped a simple catch, Radley gave a hospital pass which got intercepted. None of these players have played badly but in test ru...

Re: England Vs Samoa

Always felt this would be a tough,tough game best side won Frankly if you took away the NRL players from the England team, we would have lost by 50. Worrying for RL in this country and something to ponder the next time the RFL reduce the salary cap in real terms whilst pandering to Castleford and H...

Re: England Vs Samoa

Wane has to take this one I'm afraid. With Radley at 9 England look a massive threat. With McIllorum there.................well. It was working and Wane put him back on!
