Jermaine McGilvary has announced his international retirement with immediate effect. He was outstanding in the 2017 world cup, and is still putting in excellent performances for Huddersfield.
But given the options we have for the wing, I'm not overly suprised.

Dewsbury appoint Liam Finn as there new coach.

Interesting appointment, never coached before going into a team that are in the bottom 2. Good luck to him anyway.

Had a rough time in England, and either seemed injured or out of form.

Given the support Dewsbury showed to Bradford it is for me hard to see them struggle. Liam Finn certainly has a task on his hands, Lee Greenwood is a very good coach so it is not immediately obvious to me at least where the improvements are coming from.

I do agree with you but I am disappointed for him and the team. Makinson is a shoe in and I would like like to see Tom Johnstone given a chance. In his absence McGilvary would be very close if not in the side.

Next year's championship summer bash looks like it will be heading back to Blackpool.

Not a suprise given the poor attendance especially on sunday (which I thought was the better day if I'm honest).

No surprise but not just the derby defeat, they have been poor v the resources to hand this past few years.

And have announced ex Hull KR boss Tony Smith as there new coach. Interesting, putting aside the rival aspect, if he gets them playing like Rovers last year he'll be a success. If they play like Rovers this year, he'll be a failure. Good enough squad, but in my opinion something is wrong in the club. Not sure he'll be able to fix that.

And Wakefield sack Willie Poaching after a year.

Bizarre, he got them to finish 10th, and the last couple of months winning. Lot of older players leaving so could shape his own squad. Really don't get why they've done this.

100% agreed, very strange decision after a very positive end to the season. I see that they have also let Assistant Coach Francis Cummins go, two good people who IMO deserve better.

I know he is going but IMO he should pack up and **** off, soon, today, now. Disgraceful, particularly for someone in his position.

Agree about Adam Walker. Good player. Thoughts with everyone associated with him.

2 coaching news.

St Helens, have as expected promoted Paul Wellens from assistant to the main coaching position.
In a suprising move Sean Long is the new Featherstone coach.

More coaching news that I think has slipped under the radar, James Ford has left York for Wakefield as Assistant Coach. In honesty I am a bit surprised at this, given his track record I would have thought a Head Coach role would have been more likely.

Agree Re; Featherstone, Sean Long's announcement is an eyebrow raiser.

The 2025 world cup in France is a doubt. After the French Goverment have cut the funding (though keeping full funding for the Rugby Union wc this year, and Paris olympics in 2024).
This would be a massive shame, especially as to grow the sport in France a World Cup would have been a massive boast in my opinion.

Typical France, supporting a sport that collaborated with the Vichy, which in turn collaborated with the Nazi's

I think Keighley sacked Lovegrove which is perhaps even more surprising, very hard even with the signing they have made to make the top 6 in the Championship in Year 1.

Slightly concerned as letting Luke Gale go and now the Dual Reg with Hull KR ending, hopefully all is well and it is adjustments nothing more deep rooted.
