Bateman is in both England squads so he can serve his ban quicker, is that a first? Who knows what criteria the rest of the squads will be picked on.

Agreed. I’m happy to be corrected, but I can’t think of another sport where a domestic ban would keep you out of international games, or maybe more accurately can’t think of where it has happened recently. Obviously there are probably exceptions for serious offences.

What's happening in the NRL, are they going to have players serving bans in squads for 2nd tier competition, are their governing body overseeing bans with the same conflict of interest as the RLF?

Tawdry as it is this is exactly the kind of thing the Aussies would do (and have done) so, even though it's not a good look, I'm ok with it.

The more important question is whether Bateman should be in the England squad at all but we know how obsessed Wane is with his Wigan boys :roll:

Also, RLWC I don't mind you sending me emails but please don't send ones where 'Headingley' is misspelled in the title. We've only been playing RL games there for 127 years.

oh just let him off altogether like they have done with Knowles. Rugby League is totally corrupt and I really couldn't care less if England go out at the first stage, can't support a team with the likes of Tomkins in it anyway

Yep. The NZ game against Leeds counts towards JWH's ban

Slightly different in that bateman has been chosen in a squad for which he'll never play at the expense of another player who could.

Not sure of the exact ancestry but Tez played for Ireland so it's possible that Jarrod could be eligible?

Didn't some irish squad players in previous years have dubious irish ancestry,or do l have that wrong?

Bentley can play for either England or Ireland. You can’t represent 2 different Nations in a World Cup year, but as I don’t believe he’s played for either this year, he qualifies for both until he represents one Nation or the other.

Oledkzi is a certain starter for England.
Myler, Handley, Bentley, Smith and Leeming all have a chance of making the squad.

I think England Knights have a game or 2?
Handley, Smith, Bentley, O’Connor, Gannon, Walters for England Knights (delete any that make the full squad)


Bentley has already played a few times for Ireland but as this is RL that may mean nothing. It wouldn't surprise me if the RFL let you play a half for each country in the same game!
