    English coaches blaming Bennett for SL injury crisis. Completely ridiculous.

    He asked for a pre-season camp and a test match, not a 38 game season with 2 double weekends - that is entirely on the RFL and the clubs.

    Does the UK/France have any sort of player's Union? The amount of games SL players play is quite frankly ridiculous.

    One simple solution for me would to be to slightly reduce the amount of games but also introduce a cap on the amount of regular season games a player can play in so at some point EVERY player has to be rested. Makes it easier to have mid year tests, gives youth more chances and adds a bit of tactics to coaching and how to best rotate the squad.

    I think it could even itself out as well as I imagine less players would suffer injuries with a slightly reduced workload.

    There was a union a few years ago that barely lasted a couple of years because the players couldn't be arsed with it...and it had a stupid name "1eagu3" and it was only for SL players

    RLPA(UK) needs setting up and should include all players not just SL players

    I absolutely agree...I'm just saying if we want a union they should be a branch of the Aussie RLPA

    Oh I wasn't making a point.. just an observation.
    Every now and then I see the NRL is pointed out as a beacon of professionalism by Super League fans, while in NRL land the exact same issue can be a complete mess

    Just a dislocation apparently. Should be good to play for Samoa.

    Reports JT is gone for the season and the Workd Cup.

    Huge blow for the tournament, JT would have been the face for all the promotion and hype.

    Australia would want to hope for no more injuries to the spine. Already without Inglis as well.

    I agree. Utterly huge blow for the tournament, JT is a big supporter of international RL and definitely would have been the face for all the promotion and hype.

    Any huge blows for England at this stage injury wise? They may be the most fit!

    I know we have Escare for France, a few for Tonga and the drug suspensions for Browich & Proctor for NZ.

    Hit to the marketing of the tournament but there's no better promotion than England beating Australia and with JT out their stocks go up

    Thurston and Inglis are really the players who have caused the biggest problems for the English. It's a totally different matchup with those 2 gone. I still expect Australia to get the job done but hopefully England can come close.

    I reckon JT might call it a day completely,he only has a year left anyway and it'll free up a hell of a lot of salary cap to go get someone like ash taylor
