End of year international teams

    I'm a bit gobsmacked that they left Tomkins out of the squad with Hardaker banned (from what i can tell that's their best 2 fullbacks). Going from the squad; something like this:

    1. Jonny Lomax
    2. Jermaine McGilvary
    3. Mark Percival
    4. Kallum Watkins
    5. Ryan Hall
    6. Gareth Widdop
    7. Luke Gale
    8. Sam Burgess
    9. Josh Hodgson
    10. James Graham
    11. Elliott Whitehead
    12. Bateman/McMeekan/Currie
    13. Sean O'Loughlin

    14. James Roby/George Williams
    15. Alex Walmsley
    16. Tom Burgess
    17. Bateman/McMeekan/Currie

    One interesting part of their squad is they've got two near genuine five-eighths in reserve and sweet fuck all back up for the back 3. Might indicate Widdop being planned as the fullback with Williams, Hodgson or Brown at five-eighth.
  2. Julian BJ Taylor

    They also have heaps of props in the squad so I reckon there might be a chance they use Burgess as Whitehead's second row partner on an edge.
  3. Cribbage RG Cribb

    I reckon there's a great chance of Widdop playing fullback. It'd be a big mistake though IMO.
