The 2016 Four Nations tournament is coming to you this October and November. It is the one of biggest international Rugby League tournaments to come to the UK in five years which features host nation England, World Cup holders Australia, No.1 ranked team in the world New Zealand and Scotland. It is guaranteed to be an action packed tournament suitable for the full family.

Six venues will be used during this year’s Four Nations including Lightstream Stadium, Hull, The John Smith’s Stadium, Huddersfield, Ricoh Arena, Coventry, Zebra Claims Stadium, Workington, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London – with the final being played at one of the most iconic stadiums in world sport, Anfield.

England Head Coach, Wayne Bennett, said: “I’m excited to begin work with this England team. The venues selected for our games in the Four Nations tournament are world class and I hope that the English fans will be out in force to support us and that we can do them proud on the field.”

England Captain, Sean O’Loughlin, said: “Playing at iconic venues such as the Olympic Stadium and Anfield are one of the reasons we play the game. Walking out in front of 45,000 fans in London last year was one of the highlights of 2015 for me and I am sure that playing in front of big home crowds will push the team on to what will hopefully be a successful campaign.”

You had to highlight dragons players - F**K! :hilarious::hilarious::hilarious::hilarious::hilarious::hilarious:
of course he did. The players do have talent but not to much of it on show at the Dragons. Pleased they got selected but it either shows leagues lack of depth or the selectors are happy to pick from losing teams

Burgess to lead England. Burgess got the nod to succeed the injured Sean O’Loughlin ahead of Canterbury skipper James Graham.

Personally I would have Graham but Burgess is good because he was s***house this year, so it's good for the Kangaroos.

Have to agree with you Bazza. Graham has the runs on the board as a captain but Bennett might think he will get more out Sam by giving him some responsibility
