Think the French games could get ugly, tbh. We're no great shakes just now and put 60-odd on them in the summer.

Couple of joke picks (Sykes, Bridge, Eastmond), and the idea of Myler being our first choice 7 after half a season of being good, an easy international debut, then half a season of being anonymous to the point were Salford stopped picking him scares me ****less. But hey, we don't have a chance anyway.

England will need to improve so much if they want to be competitive against Australia.
The first half was great to see the French side take the lead, England played with more control in the second half and cut out the silly mistakes which is all they needed to do to win comfortably enough.
That English intercept which was effectively a 12 point play was the big moment in the match, The French would have had some more confidence and been down by only 4 if the pass didn't find the opposition.
Looking forward to Australia vs New Zealand.
Also why pick Lee Smith if he's signed a contract to play Union as soon as this tournament ends? It's like Australia picking KHunt, wouldn't happen!

Great game on at the moment Aussie vs New Zealand.
Aussie are going to win as NZ are doing all the defending and not getting much metres on the hit ups.
The Aussies look off side to me they are really rushing up in defence.
