I think there are a too many numb brains on here talking nonsense about a lot of things.



exactly get better weather and the other players back for the exiles that did the origional training that pulled out last minute and it will be a different game

The whole concept of the game is a joke really, whats the point of the game? Whats wrong with bringing back Lancashire against Yorkshire? at least there'd be 2 sets of supporters creating an atmosphere. Plus how can McBannana be taken seriously when he picks so many out of form Leeds players? And whats the point playing for a trophy when they only play 2 games, who gets the trophy if the Exciles win the next game.....what an absolute joke!!!

No it wont. I will also be very surprised if even more Exile players dont pull out of the next game.

I wouldn't be too happy with having key Wigan players in the Exiles team. I do enjoy international rugby league but to me it's nowhere near as important as the club game. That's not how it should be but unfortunately at this moment in time international rugby is simply not good enough.

It's alright saying fans should get behind it and change their attitudes towards it but what incentive is there? How can fans start seeing the international game as more important than the club game when the club game is simply so much better? There's little to get passionate about when it comes to internationals when England face France, Wales or a bunch of overseas players hastily thrown together. There's no real intensity, no real rivalry in those games between the players or the fans.

I have struggled with the concept of the England v Exiles matches to a degree!!! Yes they offer England some warm up/team building matches against a team of experienced battle hardened players. But if we want a concept which will eventually grow into a match with the brutality, entertainment of a state of origin match, which the Aussies use to basically choose their national side, instead of England playing meaningless but useful games like the Exiles match, why dont England play the England Knights??? Im sure there are a few Knights players who would love to show the current England manager how well they can play, and also show the current England players why they need to be dropped!!! These games can then be used to see which players, young/older/experienced/inexperienced etc, can play in their selected positions, and then the England squad/team can then be chosen from those that perform best!!! The fact that a potential England place is up for grabs will be better motivation than playing games against the Exiles, and one sided matches against Ireland....Just my thoughts!!!

I have said much the same in posts recently. England v England Knights, East v West etc. Whatever way you want to name it have a trial match between English players for England selection and it has a lot more mileage and potential than any doomed Exile concept.

Been saying this for months now.
Rugby Union used to play Probables vs Possibles.
It would certainly give the young lads a cahnce to prove themselves against the so called England first team and gives the coach something to think about.
