Seriously questioning some of Hand's selections, namely the fact that James Griffin isn't going. How can you justify not taking a player who won the best British player award by IHJUK? Would have also taken Cowley instead of Nell, but ho hum.
Griffin won best U21 player, not best British player
But I have to agree, Griffin should have been picked over Boothroyd at least, I don't rate Mark Thomas very highly either
