Now that SL has almost finished it's almost time to look forward to the internationals. I dont think GB/England have ever had a better chance of winning something with the players we have avaiable especially with Austin, Hastings and Coote available for selection. What would your squad be? I think we have some great forwards but Hill would miss out for me.


1. Ratchford
2. Makinson
3. Percival
4. Gildart
5. Charnley
6. Lomax/Austin
7. Hastings
8. Graham
9. Hodgson
10. Thompson
11. Bateman
12. Whitehead
13. S.Burgess

14. T.Burgess
15. Clark
16. Walmsley
17. Watts

Reserves - Hardaker, Connor, Widdop, G.Burgess, Cooper

How many of those players would realistically get in the Kangaroos squad?
Coote, Austin and Hastings would not be anywhere near the Aussies team.

I think every time we build up to a series, we hear how this is GB's best ever chance, never had a squad as good as this, invariably we lose and say its because of whoever the coach was, not picking X player instead of Y player.

They have already picked the squad haven't they and a few of those names have been told to book holidays instead, including Hardaker and Charnley.

Real shame for Charnley. Every inch a GB player but a victim of the way the club has fared.

Full GB Squad:

James Graham
Blake Austin
John Bateman
Tom Burgess
Daryl Clark
Jake Connor
Lachlan Coote
Oliver Gildart
Zak Hardaker
Jackson Hastings
Ryan Hall
Chris Hill
Josh Hodgson
Jack Hughes
Josh Jones
Jonny Lomax
Jermaine McGillvary
Joe Philbin
Luke Thompson
Jake Trueman
Alex Walmsley
Elliott Whitehead
Gareth Widdop
George Williams

Not sure how Watts missed out. Also think McGilvary and Hughes can count themselves lucky. Josh Charnley unlucky.

Jake Connor doesn’t deserve a place on the basis of form.






Just my opinions unless it's a FACT, in which case it's a fact.

That’s five of our main men in there, Hope injuries and fatigue don’t put paid to next season before it starts .

Also hope we don’t get sucked into any more meaningless WCC Challenge matches, on the back of our magnificent Challenge Cup victory against our bitter and twisted local Merseyside rivals :D

In that case neither does Austin
