Yeah, I think his age is the only thing stopping him from selection to the knights. They do tend to go for guys who are up and coming like Batch and 26 looks to be about the maximum age they've gone for, Ashurst at 28 seems to be that little bit too old.

Sam Burgess has now pulled out of the squad through having operations, they will announce his replacement over the weekend.
Possibly MA?

You'd think he'd be in the mix certainly, based on Super League form he should be. McMeekin went to the world cup but generally not hit the standards of 2017 from what i've seen though generally does a job on us. Not sure who else would be in consideration?

Scott Taylor from Hull would be my guess for the replacement, went well in Denver.

Scott Taylor is an out and out prop though isn't he?

Yeah he is as far as i'm aware, just seems like the sort of thing Bennett would do. Fingers crossed Ashurst gets the call or somebody from the knights gets promoted and he takes their place.

It absolutely baffles me that MA is in the top two second rowers in the league (dream team), yet cant get in to EITHER national representative team. I get that the England 2nd team is more for the youth and if theres an age limit then that's fair enough, but how hasnt be been picked for the England team anyway!? He wouldnt start, youd expect Elliott Whitehead and Bateman but surely worth a squad place

i thought the same with Kirmo a few years when he was in the dream team but not for England, we need Gareth Southgate to pick our team, he looks to be picking on form rather than reputation etc

As mentioned on Facebook I think FC will probably ask Taylor to decline considering the tough season he’s had with no preseason rest.

I would love to see Ashurst get the call. His development into a quality second rower has been fantastic. Never mind France I would like to see him tested against the best

I like Ashurst a lot but it really shows the difference between club and country when we think he might have a chance of replacing Burgess.
There is a massive gap between the two players.
