Difficult to see us getting up in this one. We might stick with the Kangaroos for 40 minutes but they will finish over the top of us.

Kangaroos 13+.

Feels like this game is the least hyped Aus/NZ game ever. Ever since being announced.
At least it is sold out, which is good to see after a fairly lackluster year of crowds in Townsville.

Australia by 20.

Well I hardly care for it, mainly because it's all they're doing. If it was the first game of a tournament it might be more interesting.

That NZ team looks so incredibly average. This will probably come back to bite me but it's hard to see them even competing with Australia. Wouldn't be at all suprised to see a blowout.

Where can they get picked? The only possible spot for them to be is on the bench and clearly that spot is going to Farah.

Pretty much this. When you consider how bad NZ are in one offs and then look at their squad it's hard to be excited. I mean i'm still looking forward to it but i understand why casual fans aren't.

That plus nothing in the NRL really gets hyped (except SOO). Hopefully that starts changing a little from next year.

The 2-5 of nz is pretty terrible. Beale and whare aren't even good first graders. I know matai, skd, nightingale, vatuvai and ropati are injured but surely they have better somewhere?

2-5 terrible?

Inu and Perrett have been outstanding. Don't understand Whare given he's barely kept a FG spot, Beale's incumbent isn't he?

Whare and Beale are really only there because Nightingale's injured anyway.

Beale has been embarrasingly bad this year and Whare isn't near test level. Inu has been good but he's wildly inconsistent and who knows what player will show up this weekend. Perrett is a sure bet but overall i wouldn't feel at all confident going against Australias 2-5 with that line-up, could be a blood bath.

I think there is too much focus on their 2-5 anyway at the moment. They are completely outclassed at 1,6,7,9 and their forward pack looks average and is going to get smashed.

I totally agree with the sentiment here. Australia out-classes the Kiwis across the park. The 12.5 points start the bookies are offering won't be enough. Australia will only need to lift to 3rd gear for a win here. Could easily be an embarrassing 30+ point margin by the final siren.

I'm all over Aus (-12.5) @ $1.85. I'll be taking higher margins when they are released for some real good value.

Aussies 13+, but Beale to play a blinder to pull down the pants of anyone who ever doubted the Steve Price masterstroke of signing him at Saints
