They should play Coote at fullback, why you'd pick him and not play him is beyond me. He's the best fullback in Super League and is comfortably the best in that squad.

Play Lomax 6 and Trueman 7. Play Connor and Jones in the centres and Handley and McGilvray on the wings. Play Clark at 9 and drop Chris Hill from the team and retire him.

I think Bennett (in his final game in charge of England & GB) should ring the changes. anybody who is in the squad, but yet to play, give them a game. Nothing to lose, apart from a 4-0 whitewash ! :D

When you put it like that it seems obvious which way to go. :wink:

Obviously agent Bennett will have other ideas.

PNG are very hard to beat in PNG.
I don't think they are ready to beat GB yet, but they'll give a very good account of themselves.

The players I mentioned in my opening post are all attacking threats.

Edene Gebbie is a sensational new talent who will be playing full back or wing with South Sydney next season. Watch his try in the second half against Fiji:

If the very talented Nene Macdonald, who is now not playing because of an off field incident, could overcome his mental health problems, and rejoin the NRL, then PNG would have one of the best set of outside backs in the world:

David Mead

Alexander Johnston. Justin Olam, Nene Macdonald, Edene Gebbie
.

In order to bring to bear the combined power of Wales (Benjamin Flower, Regan Grace, Elliot Kear, Rhys Williams, Gilbert Dudson), and Scotland (Lachlan Coote, Daniel Brough, Ryan Brierley, Alexander Walker, Daniel Addy), and Ireland (Tyrone McCarthy, Joseph Keyes) with that of England, and thereby overwhelm the opponents with passion as well as skill.
