Defeating the the Rugby League world’s No1 side was a great boost for Rugby League in this country with the resultant Media Coverage ; All Good stuff . So with a clutch of talented young players ready to lead the England team into a critical couple of years, the future undoubtedly looks bright. Lets have more !Well yes but what happens next ?
Bring on the Australians ! Absolutely , there hasn't been an Ashes series since 2003 , but it won't be for some time , next year its the Four Nations and in 2017 its the Rugby League World cup .So the earliest we could take on the Kanagaroos in a 3 game Test Series would be 2018 ,
Super League may have be good for the game in many ways, but degradation of the Old Fashioned 3 match Test Series to an infrequent offering cannot be in the games best interests.
International competition is what gets the game noticed in the media and beyond the M62 Corridor , a Test Series against the Aussies in 2016 would have been massive for Rugby League , but somehow I just can't imagine the Four nations having the same impact , Do You ?
