You can't handle the truth

The Four Nations series was an obvious success and proved that holding big international RL at big stadiums is the best way to showcase our game. Some success was desperately needed after a series of calamities e.g. the Crusaders fiasco

Unfortunately England lost and once again it emphasised our losing mentality and a continuation of the timid selection policy of picking out of form players out of position. At least we didn't  try to get away with selecting any injured players as we have in the past. Burgess, O'Loughlin, Bridge, Atkins etc would've enhanced our chances but why were so many of our players injured? Some of them were involved in the play offs

Collectively and individually we still have the wrong priorities.We play too many games and have too many foreigners involved in an unsuccessful and stagnating club competition whose media profile declines by the hour. This is down to poor management and we are kidding ourselves if we can't see it.

During the SL war…

They're Stealing Our Clothes

I've just seen the schedule for the British Lions RU tour to Australia in June 2013.

Not only have they stolen the British Lions name (used by RL long before RU) but they are visiting similar places in a similar way at the same time of year as we used to do. They are even playing mid-week country matches.

They are stealing our clothes on and off the pitch and getting away with it
