Here is the England squad to play France;

Ryan Atkins (Wakefield)
Sam Burgess (Bradford)
Shaun Briscoe (Hull KR)
Tony Clubb (Harlequins)
Eorl Crabtree (Huddersfield)
Peter Fox (Hull KR)
James Graham (St Helens)
Ryan Hall (Leeds)
Gareth Hock (Wigan)
Danny McGuire (Leeds)
Scott Moore (Huddersfield)
Adrian Morley (Warrington)
Richard Myler (Salford)
Sean O'Loughlin (Wigan)
Jamie Peacock (captain, Leeds)
James Roby (St Helens)
Michael Shenton (Castleford)
Sam Tomkins (Wigan)
Ben Westwood (Warrington)

Very weak side I think, Tony Smith is just trying to experiment with new players. I like the inclusion of Ryan Hall though, he has played brilliantly this season and deserves his place.

Not something to strike fear into the southern hemisphere sides.

And definitely alot of star players missing (e.g Rob Burrow, Gareth Ellis, Paul Wellens etc), The Aussies won't be scared by looking at this squad.

Suppose it has to be stated that this is a mid season friendly against reasonably weak opposition so it's not all that surprising that an squad with a few experiments is named.

Do you think Super League's weekly rounds should be cancelled for the international game? Leeds don't have 3 star players for our match against Huddersfield, and that could affect the game.

In an ideal world but I suppose the calendar is pretty full as it is. How are Catalan coping as I imagine they would provide the bulk of the French team?
