He's not back to form yet.

I'd ask why Reece Lyn isn't going - one of the best English centres around at the moment, and getting better every game. I'd play him at centre over Bateman all day.

I don't think either of our guys can grumble. Neither showing the form that got them the original selection and others, such as Makinson, have grasped the opportunity.

Sorry but Lyne is currently playing better than he ever has.

Fair enough but, would you seriously put him at International level in front of Gildart, Percival, Bateman or Connor for example.
Also: Lyne was actually in the tier below from which I think only Jake Connor has been promoted..

I don't think Lyne is a better option than Connor or Percival, though apparently Makinson will start at centre which seems odd. How do you think Lyne went on Sunday? Looked like he was treading water for the Lineham try, was amazed at how easily he was outpaced as I'm sure he used to be one of the quickest players in the squad. Also the overlap for the Kevin Brown try came from Lyne staying down after the previous tackle and leaving only one marker. Obviously can't help if he was injured but looked like he just wanted a breather.

Plus I thought he could have had a try, maybe two if he'd backed himself near the line, particularly the one where he ended up in touch in goal.

Think he might benefit from a rest when Arundel is fit.

I never said he was did I

I said Lyne was playing the best I’ve seen him play - that’s a completely different issue!

I wouldn’t pick Lyne for GB but he’s still playing well - not sure what game you were watching on Sunday but it was different to mine.

I'd say Ashurst is the most unlucky to miss out.

Based on Last seasons form, Johnstone would/should be on the plane to Denver.
However, since his injury, although his finishing is excellent, he does seem to have lost some of his pace (or confidence) and right now, I would have both Charnley and Lineham in front of him (plus Hall and Mcgillvery).
The one thing in his favour though is time and if he can get back to where he was 12 months ago, he will definitely get his chance.

Quite easily I would have thought; I'd be a founder member of the TJ fan club if such a thing existed, but he was out for a long time with a nasty injury, and is not yet firing on all cylinders - so right now, there are better options.

He has time on his side however, and I have no doubt that he'll feature in future international games - particularly once Bennett has moved on.
