England will field a sensational team for the first Test that will include NRL stars James Graham, Sam Tomkins, Gareth Widdop, Tom Burgess and Mike Cooper along with Man Of Steel Zak Hardaker, NRL-bound speedster Joe Burgess, classy centre Kallum Watkins, skipper Sean O’Loughlin and wily hooker James Roby. The Kiwis are without a host of stars including Shaun Johnson, Manu Vatuvei, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, Kieran Foran and Simon Mannering but still boast a formidable side including Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, Jesse Bromwich, Issac Luke and Ben Matulino. Tuimoala Lolohea and Peta Hiku form the makeshift halves pairing and Adam Blair is the new captain. The Kiwis have plenty of size in their pack and experience out wide.
England/Great Britain and New Zealand have played 119 Tests with England winning 68 to the Kiwis’ 45 with six draws. Recently though the battles have been exceptionally close with New Zealand holding an 8-7 edge since 2005. In England though it is the home side that has dominated winning 9 of the last 11 dating back to 2004. None of the last five Tests between the sides have topped 38 Tests. New Zealand have lost their last three Tests at Hull including the last two by margins of 44 and 22.
England warmed up for the first Test by feasting out on France 84-4 in a total annihilation of Les Chanticleers with 10 England players scoring tries. England have won just two of their last five Tests with those wins against France and Samoa. Against major opposition since the 2008 World Cup, England are 2-13. Their last four Test losses though have all been by single digits. New Zealand have been in outstanding form in recent years, winning 10 of their last 12 Tests and claiming the mantle of the best Test nation in the world. The Kiwis swept through the Four Nations last year undefeated and parlayed that into a rare Anzac Test win earlier this year. The Kiwis last lost to a team not Australia in the 2011 Four Nations. New Zealand won their lead-up match against Leeds 34-16.
The battle of hookers James Roby and Issac Luke should be a salivating one for Rugby League purists. Roby is a tenacious defender, a rugged player with a huge heart. Luke is the sharpest dummy half runner in the NRL and gives his all for the Kiwis. If the Kiwis are to cause the upset, it will be on Luke exploiting his speed. It will be on Roby to nullify him.
England have been knocking on the door in recent years, having matched both Australia and New Zealand without breaking through. This is their chance against a vulnerable Kiwi team that has been gutted by injury. The Kiwis have traditionally struggled to win in England and their makeshift halves pairing will make it extremely difficult to end that run. Steve McNamara’s team has the aggression up front to match New Zealand and get a huge edge out wide with their fabulous three-quarter line. This is England’s time to shine.
