Bearing in mind the recent disclosures regarding HM and her reluctance to engage fully with the HMRC plus her grandson's reluctance to show up at the World Cup,should the England team boycott the national anthem?

Her grandson turns up for war not public hand shaking sessions. He's also heavily involved with injured soldiers through the Invictus games etc
Sometimes sports needs to be put into context.

Make sure when the anthem comes on next week that you put your coffee down and get out of your comfy chair and sing so loud it wakes the neighbours up. (or is this our kneeling opportunity!!)

Sorry but, although NOBODY should down play some of the great work he has done with the Invictus Games etc, he will be amogst the crowd at Twickers, sipping champagne with the other big wigs.
However, he should show just a little interest in the sport that he is now the supposed figurehead :CRAZY:
Foe me, he should never have been given the RL gig as he is NEVER likely to grace the sport with his presence.

Was he reluctant? Was he even invited?
Fair comment if he was invited but rejected the chance....but I doubt very much he was invited as it would be the RFL's responsibility to cover costs (and that would include protection squads, flights, hotels etc...)

What....interest like this you mean?

And he's welcome to continue to do all that good stuff as a very rich - at our expense - private citizen.

I wouldn't sing that forelock-tugging dirge composed to remind the peasants of their inferiority to the rightful ruling class if you lined up all the South Sea Islanders and asked them to persuade me.
