Very pleased we don’t have many players taking part in the World Cup.

Means we won’t have them picking up injuries and hopefully all the fully fit players will return for pre season together rather than in dribs and drabs as seems to have been the case in recent years?

Putting club before country has always been the RL way, that’s why Rugby Onion makes so much money, emphasis on internationals.

Looking forward to watching Tonga and Samoa play. Both teams look a handful.

I’d genuinely consider us at 5th best on paper. NZ, Aus, Samoa and Tonga are all probably better then us on paper. Even Fiji have a host of quality players who would give us a good go. Ireland don’t have a bad side either, I think we will struggle to get to the semis and would be amazed if we managed to get to the final.

I’d love to see more hull players in the comp, representing your country in a WC is the pinnacle of sporting achievements.

Have to say I'm struggling to get excited about the World Cup.

Whether that's the weakness of the England squad, the lack of Hull players in the tournament or just a general sense of apathy at the end of another disappointing season, I'm not sure. Probably a combination of all three.

Only till recently do I feel excited for it, will probably do both games at MKM and might go to a couple England games at last minute. But have to say ticket prices are quite ridiculous. 55 quid to sit behind the sticks at st James park is way too much

There's still some £30 tickets left for England behind the posts at St James'

Amazed Cleary isn't in, even someone like Adam Reynolds would be our best half and there are loads in front of him.

The depth they have is scary.

Saying that, should be a good tournament, as normally you would say for certain, England, Aus and NZ, would be free of the semi finals, not sure that is the case with Samoa and Tonga having very good sides, PNG and Fiji should be competitive too.

Shame the likes of Walmsley, Lomax and Percival are out.
