Picking an inital 32 man squad with plenty of cover I'd be looking at something like:

Tomkins
Ratchford

Charnley
Hall
Briscoe

Reed
Atkins
Watkins
Goulding

Widdop
Chase

Brough
Lomax/Smith

Graham
Mossop
L Burgess
Prescott
Hill
Carvell
McCarthy-Scarsbrook
Patrick

Roby
McIlorum
Burrow/Houghton

S Burgess
Ellis
Hock
Westwood
Farrell
JJB/Bateman
O’Loughlin
Sinfield

Obviously aspects such as 2013 form/injuries are going to play a massive part in whittling that down to a final 24 and then 17. I've tried to mix some of the most promising younger players with experience and remove what I consider dead wood from the squad. If McNamara is still in charge a lot of this will still be floating around however no doubt.

I'd love to see England vs England with something along the lines of these two squads. Surely it'd be interesting for the fans to come and spectate rather than cheer? The game would be full-blooded coming into direct competition for places.

England v England followed by England v Exiles?

Obviously I'm biased but Briscoe has proven that he can do alot more than just scored tries and some brilliant ones at that. Charnley although he's a very good winger and one of the best English wingers around is fortunate to be playing for easily the best team in the comp were alot of his tries are handed to him. Which he mentioned himself on the Super League show the other night. Can't recall seeing him break a tackle and go the full length of the pitch or anything of note.
Like I said I'm obviously going to be bias but for me Hall and Briscoe are the two best wingers for England at the minute, followed by Charnley.

I actually think Charnley and Briscoe are. Never really got the attraction with Hall. Good athelete and scored two good tries against Aus last year but he's nothing special for me. Too much emphasis is put on who scores the most tries when discussing the best wingers but wingers who score alot tend to get alot of walk ins because they are in the best teams. Hall is a perfect example of this and I don't often see Hall score a try that Briscoe couldn't have scored. However I see Briscoe do something every week and think, "theres not many who could do what he just did there." Take the Leeds game on Friday, quiet game by him (and all the wingers really) but could Hall have slid behind his line to clean up that kick before making 20 metres? Not a chance.
