“Absolute load of tosh this game” – how social media has reacted to the England-All Stars fixture

It’s been one of the most talked about games, but the England fixture against the All Stars is hitting the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

With Super League sides already facing troubling times in terms of fielding 17 players, the England-All Nations game on Friday night is set to stretch some clubs to their absolute limits. But, how has social media reacted?

One was confused as to how two English players – Jake Connor and Jermaine McGillvary – were included in the Combined Nations All Stars squad.

Another was confused as to why Championship players had been picked.

St Helens had no players in the All Stars squad, much to the bewilderment of some fans.

That sentiment was echoed by another fan.

Another fan described it as yet another error of the RFL’s ways.

One Super League supporter laughed at the English equivalent to State of Origin.

One fan couldn’t believe that England were playing at the same time as the rest of Super League.

Another called the squad “baffling”.

Another supporter came up with a one-word statement to describe the situation.

One supporter couldn’t believe what he was seeing.

A different Twitter user came up with another idea instead.

Despite this, some people were actually excited for the game.

Another supporter was looking forward to watching some players in action.

Another was looking forward to seeing some different combinations.
