Kiwis by 6...would like to see Kevin Proctor get picked.

He has been playing well and deserves a crack and could geniunely trouble the Aussies running out wide.

Aussies to win this one. Kiwis always seem to struggle in the one off tests.

Inglis tends to step up a few levels for rep games. Can't recall many bad games from him.

Will they be getting a referee from the UK for this match?

Not sure. I know there's an NZ touchie and NZ Video (Pakieto) in the box.

I believe there'll be two VR's actually.

Gordon should have been the first winger chosen last year (from those available)

Creagh? Cronk? Idris on the bench?

I would have thought the last few years would have stopped the selectors from picking their favourites because Australia would win anyway. I was wrong. Part of me hopes Australia loses to stop them from making sh!t selections.
