    Don't know much about Luke, but is he not at the same level as the other 3? From what I have seen Sam is outstanding, George is a massive talent, but I don't have much of an opinion on Tom or Luke. Just interested that Luke wasn't selected!

    Also how are the England fans feeling about their chances?? I don't follow English RL at all but clearly they have some talent in their squad! An upset chance? or is their final gonna be against NZ in the semi?

    He's a good player, could just be a case of not needing that many props in the squad.
    Don't think many (realists) are expecting England win, but you never know with a knockout tournament.
    I expected Australia to breeze it last time round and.....

    After having watched the League final this weekend I have to say that the English also bring very entertaining footie.

    But you always have to face the powerhouse Australia.
