I really can't believe that you're still sooooooooo bitter about Zak being at Wigan, and not at Cas.
You've been stalking him for over twelve months now, time to let go. :SUBMISSION:


Eh? I just pointed out he hadn’t been picked in the performance squad, so he wouldn’t be playing for GB at the end if the year, on a thread where someone else has suggested he would.
I’ve always said I don’t want Zak back at Cas, but I hope he sorts his life out and is successful, now and when his RL career is over.

You cannot leave Widdop out if he is fit. He is one of the best players in the NRL (he almost won the prestigious Dally M medal last year). Bennett will definitely pick Widdop so don't even think about it not happening.

John Lomax has to be there because he has performed well at international level, as well as at St Helens.

So the question is whether Blake Austin gets the call (with Lomax playing at full back). Blake Austin will be deservedly ahead of Lachlan Coote, and of course ahead of Zachary Hardaker for the final 17.

The British spine should likely be:

Lomax
Austin
Widdop
Hodgson.

James Roby on the interchange bench.

I’m pretty sure you mean Jonathan Lomax?

Well according to Phil Clarke, Jake Truman is the new Roger Millward, so we've got that one covered. Anybody know who the new Alex Murphy is?

Hardaker should be no where near the team.

Interesting that there's not much support for Williams.

He played at 6 in the wins over the Kiwis last year, and I wouldn't say his form has dipped, he's been pretty good this season.

But has George Williams been better than Blake Austin and Gareth Widdop? I don't think so. Williams' best chance is if Bennett decides to give native born British men first crack at playing.
