Good. Wonder if they'll pick Sutton.

Weirdly Hodgo has done sweet FA in an England jersey, Roby looks the more likely every time I've seen them play international footy. Might be part of the reason Wane isn't automatically set on NRL stars being great internationals.

That squad looks bloody old. Not too many new faces there. Everyone gets a run!

No. Handley of Leeds is in.

Hanley of Wigan, son of Ellery, hasn't.

I'm not confident this will even go ahead tbh

And as hard as it would be for them, I would prefer none of the boys go over to the uk

Raiders players' game commitments will be done and they should be over the hangovers from winning the GF. Let them go and spend time with families and friends. It will do their mental health the world of good.

I just hope they're all injury-free before and after the series.
Some people talk about the weather. Others do something about it.

I would love them to spend time with their families, and agree about the mental health aspect
I just worry about the impact of 2 weeks quarantine ( no way that will finish by then) and the risk of them getting covid in the uk.

My brother lives over there, 1 in every 5 people have had it, including him.
Not sure the risk is worth it sadly

Heaps old. Older than the Roosters. :lol:

Put it this way, the coach will want to win with that squad sooner rather than later.

Not top 4 material IMO.

Sorry to see about your brother. However, I think they'll put up with two weeks quarantine for the chance to reunite.
