    Former England player Garry Schofield has had a bit to say about Australia and Mal Meninga after wrapping up the series against the Kiwis

    From Fox Sports

    “The Aussies lost to New Zealand last month, which meant that the winners of the England-Kiwi Test series would become the world’s number one Test nation,” Schofield wrote in his column for League Express.

    “Even if you believe the Aussies are still the best and the defeat to the Kiwis was a blip, then they don’t deserve to be ranked number one if they can’t be bothered to play many games.”

    “No one respects Big Mal more than me, but you can only conclude that he has completely failed. If the Lions travel to Australia in 2019 and don’t get the chance to play in a full Ashes series, it will be a disgrace.”

    But Meninga was quick to reply on Monday, telling The Daily Telegraph: “Schofield is the mouth from the north. People don’t even talk to him up there. He was here last year with a touring party, he was a shocker, wasn’t he?

    “We won’t be running scared, put it that way. We have never been scared of the Poms over a three-match series.

    “It will be such a shame if the Australians refuse to play Great Britain during next year’s Lions Tour,” he said.

    “They should not be allowed to dictate terms like this.

    “At the moment, it looks like the Aussies are running scared. They won’t even agree to one Test match, although even that wouldn’t be enough for me.

    “Come on Mal, what are you scared of? You Australians have got to stop treating the international game with such contempt.”

    Schofield added: “We can’t let them (Australia) off the hook with this. They don’t own the game. They can’t stick two fingers up to the glorious history of international Rugby League.

    “Dally Messenger will be turning in his grave.”

    Schoey always was a bit of a stirrer. Would have liked the article more if he called for Mal's head!!!!!
