Really surprised (or maybe not as hes a Wigan player) Hardaker has got the nod on Saturday over Newman!

Also Bateman captain, he’s lucky to be in the squad, he’s been dire all year.

Pleased for Leeming and Oledski though.

Thought Newman might have got in over Lynne and Lees over Philbin.

No but is there anyone that good from there to change things dramatically?
Hardaker picked at centre beggars belief.

We all know Zak isn't much of a centre (on this year's form he's not even much of a full back right now.)
Why on earth has he been picked there?
"Brian McDermott, with a wry smile, nods when asked if he remembers a specific incident which made him realise he was a prick. 'I do', he murmurs."

Tom Burgess, Herbie Farnworth, Dom Young, Elliott Whitehead, Luke Thompson, Ryan Sutton might be in my squad yes.

Hardaker hasn’t been in England form this year and Bateman should be nowhere near. It’s alright Wane banging on about form and then picking him…

Only one player out of the 17 would get into the 17 for Australia the gap is definitely growing. I know no Nrl based players but not sure any of them would get in either.

Why shouldnt the gap widen tho? The difference in budgets between the NRL and the RFL/SL is massive and again getting wider.

Christ, our own club are asking players to play unpaid next year at scholarship and academy level on amateur contracts. Is that condusive to developing and encouraging kids to play the sport?

Always remember GH hosting a fan event when he took over at Leeds and being asked when GB would beat Australia and he answered "Never, and we shouldnt either" he was right tho at the time I was shocked by his response.

No point comparing us with Australia its like comparing Oxford Utd with Man City and wondering why Oxford never catch them.

Harry Newman is a far better centre than both Reece Lyne and Zak Hardaker, that’s a terrible selection from Wane. Oledzki and Leeming’s spot are well deserved.
