Wane making a fool of himself selecting manfredi.
Dom hasn’t been fit for 3 years.
Plenty of wingers are ahead of him

One thing I've learned about Wane is do not pre-judge his teams, judge his results.

Oh don’t get me wrong I hope Wane does well, manfredi also, but I just think he shown he’s biased towards Wigan. Which isn’t fair on other wingers who have done well.
Would love to get one other the Aussies!

To be fair the only one in there i disagree with is Manfredi who has featured little in the last 3 years

Thompson was the leagues best prop and only isnt playing in the NRL due to suspension
Percival is playing isnt he? and is one of our best strike centres - likewise Gildart is probably the classiest centre England have in a position we really struggle in

Dom though has got because of his Wigan connection there are plenty decent wingers to chose from Tom Davies should be in the ahead of him
percival hasnt played since before the GF, Thompson was poor in teh NRL last year and was class 2 years ago....that doesnt warrant an International call up, Watts should be in before him for a start
Percival has played this season.
It thought he had hes scored a try against salford

I think including Manfreddi is a very good sign, especially for us. His injury prognosis must be very good, or he wouldn't have been included in the squad.

At this point in time, it's just a Training squad that he's named, there'll no doubt be many adjustments and amendments before the 1st game of the World Cup in November.
He's only had 2 rounds so far this season to go off so no doubt some of last years form will have been taken into account as well as some bits of 2021 early form
Knowing Wane he'll want to win the Competition so much that he won't be making any "soft" picks when the time comes for his ultimate selections.

For sure. It would mean the world to him.
