Someone on the Casforum is asking why 'Captain Marvel' has been selected and surely there must be someone better...... Well there isn't and there isn't by a long way. I would love to know who is a better captain to have out there than Lockers. It's obvious that the rest of the squad look up to him. It's the Wigan envy i suppose. We only have 2 players in the squad and every bugger is having a pop at them. At least Sam isn't there this time for the Leeds fans to harass this time.


To be fair tomkins doesn't really wind people up anymore given his fall from grace.

O loughlin is still class just needs to stay injury free.

So he only wound you up because he was a Good player?
Nice to know that we were right all along

I get Bateman to be fair. They have a couple of big centres and Bateman will cope with that physicality without too many problems.

Heighington I'm not as sure on when you have the likes of Currie and McMeekan available but he's experienced and certainly doesn't strike me as somebody who will let you down.

Overall a fair team. Let's hope we give a good account of ourselves.


England are clearly hoping to keep the opening encounter v Australia close on the scoreboard IMO

I don't think it's his ability that's frustrating people but more we e not got anyone looking to take his spot.

I thought that after the nz series sol n Roby would start to be phased out of the side Rob has in part but we've not looked like getting a solid replacement for sol as yet but I think we won't have a choice but to find one after the world cup?

It has the look of a “damage limitation” squad to me. No pace, no spark, little creativity, but big and strong. If our pack can get us close, we have strength in the backline to force over, but nobody there is gonna go the length of the field. Lomax in defence will have to stay deep to counter their breaks, since we don’t have anyone that will catch them if they break through.

Good performance that. Pity Lomax is nowhere near international standard. Hardaker is an idiot.

On 69 minutes Lomex went for glory and had a one man over lap.

No it was the diving, trapping players arms, and winging to the ref, all of which seem to have diminished in his game since his stint in the NRL

Would you guys have picked Tomkins btw? His defence and positioning looked a lot better than Lomax this season to me and even though loosing his pace means he isnt Sky's golden boy anymore I think he is all round probably a better player.

Lomax didn't have the greatest of games, but I'm not sure Tomkins would have done much better given his form last season. Lomax needs more exposure at this level to see if he's really up to it, so I'd stick with him. Hopefully the team will improve as the tournament progresses.
