Luke Thompson to return.

Jack Hughes to centre and Zak Hardaker to wing. :lol: :lol: :lol:

An arrogant Wigan fan a few days before we stuffed them 18-4 at the JJB.

Shaun Johnson and Brandon Smith are also back for NZ, so they will actually have two proper halfbacks and a hooker to rotate this week!

Part of me almost wishes GB gets hammered so that it helps get rid of Bennett quicker.

Who would have thought that taking only two wingers in the squad might be an issue?

It was clear when the squad was named it was chronically unbalanced. So it has proved to be.

Not hindsight, blindingly obvious from the outset.

Blake Austin to play on the wing as Hardaker is now injured. What a joke

Just can't see how we are going to win this one. Hope there is something to build on after the next couple of weeks as I have never been less excited about an International series than the 2020 Ashes, the standard of players available to our International team just gets worse year on year.

Less excited about the Ashes tour? I couldn’t be more excited, decent venues announced in good time, first time in over a decade the Aussies have toured over here properly. Final game in one of, if not the best stadiums in the world.

I can’t wait. Rugby League fans are a miserable bunch sometimes.

Only other replacement back options for Bennett were Williams and Coote. Perhaps he has some cunning plan to win.
I said on here we would do well to win one against NZ with the squad selected.
