Another good finish at the weekend - could he trouble McGillvary and Makinson for a place in the England team?

Stays injury free he's an international winger. He's performing in an underperforming team and does not have the luxury of better players on his inside yet still draws out quality plays. After the two ACL's I thought he might have lost his pace, thankfully not.

Interestingly going off strike rate alone...

1 Tom Johnstone 1.2 games per try
2 Jermaine McGillvray 1.44 games per try
3 Tommy Makinson 1.7 games per try

Obviously there’s a lot more to it than that but makes you think.

All three are world class IMO.

Jerry shouldn't be near the England side now.

You're talking like Ryan Hall is finished.

A hat-trick on the opening day says he's still about and still in contention.

Agree on Jerry. World class in his time and still very good but father time has caught up with him enough for Johnstone to be a better bet.

Got to be Johnstone and Makinson, the fact they play on opposite wings for their clubs is a plus too.

Agree with that and then Hall infront of Jerry for me

He is in truth. He may ha a grand season this year but he’s at the end of his career. Surely we now need new blood, especially in a position on the wing. Hall could still do a job but that’s not going to beat the Aussies. TJ is hungry and you can’t beat that, he will produce far more special moments than Hall can these days, it’s that simple.

I actually think TJ is a better winger than Makinson but I also think Makinson is more versatile but both should be first choice.

McGillvery and Hall are nice to have as a back up but they have both lost a bit in recent years.
