What a moment in International Rugby League! Like seriously, wow! I didn't see the game. How did Gebbie go?

I think I spoke about Gebbie in the Souths forum, I love his energy he made 15 for 139 metres to and a try assist, he did have a couple of silly handling errors though and I’m not sure on his defence yet it needs work.

Opinion - James Tedesco snub shows Golden Boot has lost its integrity. He may never win one: https://www.foxsports.com.au/nrl/nr...o/news-story/be93a875af74fc48a96c6621e3bba79a

Opinion - The only thing farcical about RTS winning the Golden Boot is Australia’s reaction: https://www.foxsports.com.au/nrl/nr...e/news-story/34f234ed7dae1631800bda035042e06e

Surely the point *is* the criterion. Making the Golden Boot 'the best player in internationals' rather than just 'the best player' is a joke; there are not enough international matches to make this feasible.

Pity ALX - I miss the Tests.
Maybe if the State of Origin series is in November, we can have test matches on those same weekends. The countries that play could be Great Britain, New Zealand, Tonga, Samoa, Fiji, Papua New Guinea.

I'd say they'll try to do a bit Rads - to really charge the League up.

England's Ashes series against Australia, scheduled for October and November, has been cancelled.

New England coach Shaun Wane was due to take charge of three Tests against the World Cup holders in Bolton, Leeds and Tottenham Hotspur's stadium in London.

It would have been the first Ashes series in 17 years.

Maybe the Kangaroos could have a test match v Kiwis on Saturday 28th November or Sunday 29th November because Game 3 of Origin will be on Wednesday 18th November.

Men's international
England (12) 24
Tries: Farrell 2, Knowles, Davies Goals: Ratchford 4
Combined All Stars (14) 26
Tries: Sio 2, Mata'utia, McGillvary Goals: Sezer 3 Pens: Sezer 2

Shaun Wane said his players need "to be a bit smarter" as his tenure as England boss began in disappointment with a 26-24 defeat by the Combined All Stars.

Appointed in February 2020, Wane finally took charge for the first time.

But Ken Sio and Peter Mata'utia crossed for the All Stars - in between Liam Farrell's double - for a 14-12 lead.

Jermaine McGillvary and Sio's second extended the lead and, although debutants Morgan Knowles and Tom Davies responded, it was not enough.
