As above,shows that there is a taste for top quality RL in this country unfortunately the game is run by idiots!Cant imagine a debacle like the MRP happening in Oz!

We've had Bentley, Myler & New boy James Mcdonnell confirmed on Ireland Squad today so far we've had:

Bentley, Myler, Mcdonnell ( Ireland)

Sangare (France)


Oledzki, Leeming (England) possibly Handley & Hardaker too.

Tetevano (Cook Islands)

Fusitu'a (Tonga)

Martin (PNG)

Very much doubt Leeming will make the England squad.

Also I have no doubt Wane won't be able to help himself in thinking about the way Hardaker snubbed Wigan when considering him.

So, the squad is released, and frankly it's as weak a squad as I can remember. Some odd selections based on form, and shows the impact of poor youth development into SL quality and beyond at many clubs, Leeds included. Mik is our only representative.

Samoa will be a very tough game.

Wane can't help but look to "his Wigan lads" and that's a tragic shame for England Rugby League.
I mean what on earth is McIlorum doing in there?

Losing Lomax and having no Walmsley is a big blow. Inclusion of McIlorum is dreadful but not a surprise. Surprised Zak is not in there, he has been very good covers multiple positions and in form
Re: 2022 | RL World Cup : Fri Sep 30, 2022 10:44 am  
Cooper, Hill, Watkins, Sneyd & McIlorum wouldn't get any minutes for mine.

Pearce-Paul wouldn't play against Samoa either if it wasn't for Bateman's ban.

Young is probably 18th man.
