Joe Batchelor in if Bateman gets a ban after Friday?


Why is the game persisting with this daft system of club bans impacting internationals? Football doesn't do this and we want to see the best players at the World Cup.

At one point the England football team had a policy of not picking players that were banned domestically - but that applied only in friendlies and is now discontinued.

IMG will sort it out in time. In the interim, said IMG is hardly covering itself in glory with the marketing of the World Cup. Even if they were not brought in for it, this would be a chance to market themselves - and bring more money into the game. Can't see anything outside the RL media and forums - and therefore neither can the non RL watching public! Was bombarded by billboards and bus ads long before cricket's "The Hundred"! They went the full, errrm, 22 yards.

Personally never saw any hundred stuff. I guess with a lot of advertising you see what you are open to.

I think the strategic plan from IMG is being released on Monday next week - if they want to make a mention of the WC and the international game as a whole they will do so then.

As for the squad, right now I would go something like this:

Tomkins
Young
Watkins
Percival
Makinson
Williams
Lomax
Oledzki
Clark
Lees
Farrell
Knowles
Radley

Welsby
Thompson
Burgess
Batchelor

With Davies, Farnworth, Smith, Ackers, Sutton, Cooper and McMeeken in reserve.

Not an enviable task, we lack depth all over the park in comparison to the very strong squad in 2017.

Herbie Farnworth in for me
Welsby full back for me, can't have him on the bench
Ackers definitely in for me too with Leeming also
Lees? not sure tbh
Watkins 2nd row to replace Farrell and Bateman in

I did see an advert on TV for the RLWC the other day, and seem to get sponsored ads on social media for it, so they are trying. The clubs should be promoting games at their grounds more though I feel

Your line-up has good balance. It's a brave choice looking front row with the two young props. Not sure if either are ready for this level yet but we won't know that if they're not given the chance. I think Tom Burgess is our senior prop right now and will likely be a starter.

I personally like Percival as a player but he's had chances before at the top level and let himself down. I'd prefer Hardaker in there. I also think Bateman must be in. It's a good line-up you chose though.

Watkins cannot play Centre - he has to play in the back row if picked.

Ackers, Leeming and Clark as the hookers for me. Batchelor has to be a shoe in for the back row.
