Re: Canberra Raiders forward Ryan Sutton should be called up to Great Britain squad

He sounds fantastic I look forward to seeing him come and test himself against the best week in and week out. Until then, sorry, nothing against him, but I’ve got Sutton ahead of him. Sutton has proven himself in the worlds best RL competition. Using that logic, Luke was the best Bateman in the who...

I’m with the poms on this one. Being pretty good in the NRL doesn’t all of a sudden jump him over better players.

Strange selections with all the backrowers for NSW, you would think Trbojevic and or Frizzell will likely play quite a bit of prop to make use of the likes of Graham, Sims and Murray etc, But having said that the QLD bench isn't exactly that threatening, Mbye, Glasby and Wallace wouldn't scare to ma...
