Not expecting much from the Kiwis to be honest. Lucky to get within 20. I hope the selectors show some balls and drop Vatuvei, he does not deserve to play in this game.

Boyd, Taylor and Shillington are weak links...bring it on I say.

Cherry-Evans will get targeted as well...

Boyd>Vatuvei

If they don't bomb it to Vatuvei's wing all day long, I'll be questioning Sheens' methods

thats a double edged sword... if he takes it early... and builds confidence... your as good as f**ked.

Manu Vatuvei with confidence is by far the best winger in the game.

Amazing Australian squad when DCE is on the bench...

Taumalolo needs to be on the bench for the Kiwis though. No better time than an Anzac test. Hopefully Fien doesn't start and it's Johnson and Benji playing together at 6 and 7, that would be something else. NZ doesn't usually get up for one off tests, but that's a good squad. Hopefully we win it!

NZ 22-18

Well for starters obvisouly you don't know what Vatuveis actual weaknesses are so I don't think you could question Tim Sheens 'methods'.

Us by 4.

Can't see him copping a huge amount of heat. The typical Kiwi would know very little about Tamou.

Kiwi league fans would know all about it. I'm sure it'll make the news anyway.
