We presently have Austin and Hastings as leading contenders for the man of steel award and whilst they have added something extra to Super League I personally would have Lomax in my team ahead of either of those two.This lads skill and bravery has been demonstrated season after season.
There is speculation that Wayne Bennett will consider the likes of Austin,Hastings and Coote for our National team in my view this would have an adverse effect on the players presently in or pushing for places in the National squad.Are those three any better than the likes of Jonny Lomax or Indeed Stephan Ratchford and Jake Connor ???.

Lomax is the best 6 in SL by a long way. Austin goes missing far too many times against good opposition whilst Lomax always rises to the occasion
Warrington Wolfs - 60+ years and counting.

Next year will be their year!

I really hope we don't go down the route of finding loopholes to get aussies into our team. They're denying someone who considers themselves British a spot in the team, and to me any win with Austin, Hastings and Coote in the team would feel hollow.

I don't want a team with aussies in it we have plenty of talent of our own

Yep! I'd understand if we were a country that doesn't even play at a decent amateur level, but we have the Super League and quite a few players in the NRL so there's no excuse. Who would people pick based on right now? I'm thinking

1. Ratchford
2. Makinson
3. Percival
4. Connor
5. McGillvary
6. Lomax
7. S.Tomkins (struggling really, don't think Connor or Williams would be a good partner)
8. Graham
9. Roby
10. Walmsley
11. Bateman
12. Whitehead
13. S.Burgess

14. G.Burgess
15. T.Burgess
16. Hodgson
17. Thompson

Reserves - Hardaker, Gildart, Williams, Sutton, Taylor, Clark, Currie

Not sure he did that in the two semi finals last year. But a good player regardless.

Austin is better. No debate to be had.

On present form I wouldnt have G Burgess or McGillvary, but other than that I'd pretty much agree across the board.

Lomax is massively overrated, I’m not sure what his position is. He was an average fullback and now he’s an average half, albeit making a few good break this year but one swallow doesn’t make a summer.
Future Wigan/Youngish player Wishlist - 1 - Jack Walker 2 - Nick Cotric 3 - TBC 4 - Oliver Gildart 5 - Joe Burgess 6 - George Williams 7 - Adam Reynolds 8 - Jordan McLean 9 - Jayden Brailey 10 - Jarrod Wallace 11 - Jack Williams 12 - Mike McMeekin 13 - Cameron Murray 14 - Christian Welch 15 - Danny Walker

Correct.

Lomax is a good player, but he isn't international class.
