    • where is the logic in saying that? new zealand is ranked one in the world and besides foran they havn’t really lost much also the kiwis have a full nrl team as england do not ( super league just isn’t on nrl level ) and honestly i don’t see this england side beating a full strength tonga or samoa and probably fiji, they will never consistently beat australia or new zealand until more english players join the nrl

  1. With the side Australia has picked we won’t beat the Kiwis and I think we will struggle to beat this English side.

  2. Mal “no bias” Meninga will lose with O’Neil in the centres (Joey Leilua is common sense), Sam “40YO” Thaiday over Wade Graham who can play every position on the field and is about 25.
