The Rugby League Four Nations Final is this weekend and it's Australia vs England.

This is coach Tim Sheen's squad

1. Billy Slater
2. Jarryd Hayne
3. Greg Inglis
4. Justin Hodges
5. Brett Morris
6. Darren Lockyer (capt)
7. Johnathan Thurston
8. Ben Hannant
9. Cameron Smith
10. Petero Civoniceva
11. Luke Lewis
12. Paul Gallen
13. Nathan Hindmarsh

Interchange:
14. David Shillington
15. Sam Thaiday
16. Anthony Watmough
17. Kurt Gidley
18. Michael Jennings
19. Brett White
(two to be omitted)

Where do I start about faulting that squad?

Jarryd Hayne won the Dally M Player of the Year. You simply must not play him out of position. He deserves to be at Fullback.

That forward pack is a joke. Luke Lewis at Second Row? Nathan Hindmarsh at Lock?Watmough on the bench? Hindmarsh and Watmough have to be in the second row.

This is the English side

1.Shaun Briscoe,
2.Peter Fox,
3.Chris Bridge,
4.Michael Shenton,
5.Ryan Hall,
6.Sam Tomkins,
7.Kyle Eastmond,
8.Adrian Morley,
9.Kevin Sinfield,
10.James Graham,
11.Jamie Peacock (capt),
12.Gareth Ellis,
13.Sam Burgess

Interchange:
14.Eorl Crabtree,
15.Jon Wilkin,
16.Ben Westwood,
17.James Roby

There is one reason why that side should beat Australia. That is Tim Sheens as Australia coach.
