    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.

    How does Brett Morris get in over Gordon/Uate/Hoppa/Any nuffie.
    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.

    He's there as utility and to cover for injuries... who would be better? There's no Bird or Lewis.

    Someone asked Creagh, Cronk, Idris?

    Uhm, aren't those players in teams positioned between 1st and 6th?

    Meanwhile Shillington, playing like a busted arsehole in a team with just one win this year, is there? :lol:

    Why can't he step up at club level...if this team was based on form he would not even be close to getting picked.
