Jackson Hastings?


I don't think Wane wants to go down that road but he may be forced to.

I think the World Cups squads have to be submitted today (or very soon), it'll be interesting to see if Jonny Lomax plays.
At his age it will probably be his last chance and from an England p.o.v. he is a superb player and as an England R.L supporter I hope he does.

However with that injury he may decide to miss out to be ready for next season, tough decision which I think has already been made!


Lomax is undoubtedly the best half we have at the moment. Unfortunately, I don’t think it will make any difference whether he plays or not, we are simply not good enough. Waney would have to work a miracle for us to win the World Cup. The competition will show just how competitive SL actually is.
Think he may go welsby/Williams if lomax pulls out.
Looking at the players available to Samoa I think we will do well to top the group. Bookies have it 10/11 the pair for our match with them. I think Samoa could have too much for us.

Which firm has those prices up for the first game? Samoa a great bet at that price, although not as good as about a year ago when they were +12 against England!

Waney may do but in my view he simply doesn’t have the quality available to trouble any of the big boys. SL has gone backwards and those shortcomings will be exposed.

I think he means the greatest team in St Helens in the year 2022 , greatest side ever ? He must have missed all of the NRL games for the past couple of decades . best side in UK ever ? I would say no .


I have said before that the 1994/95 Wigan side was the best. To beat all comers, including a great Brisbane team in their own backyard halfway through the NRL season (not a pre-season friendly for the Aussies) puts that team on a different level to any other team in the history of the British game. When another team achieves the same I will gladly talk about them in the same breath, until then no. Saints have proved that they are the best SL team in 2022, but to claim they are anywhere near the best in history is delusional. They have set the benchmark for 2023 and it is up to the rest to catch up. As I have said on another post, the WC will show how really good SL is.
Can see it going reet t1ts up next season for Saints
