Mate he is an International! Just like Lafai and Au Mau! Mary has a team full of Internationals, I don't think there is a player in our whole squad who isnt representing their beloved country!
Gotta love the "world" cup

Crush, that’s my whole point.
McDonald should of blitz it be he didn’t.
He just showed his usual lacklustre self.
Maybe l’m being too critical but l just don’t rate him.

That Tanee Milne looks interesting.

A centre that can pass and run the correct lines.
A centre that can kick conversions.
A centre that can defend.

Maybe we should try and bring him to the Dragons!
He was at the Dragons. Are you being facetious? I'm guessing you are. Tiger's gain and yes he's got a lot of potential.

Dragons RLWC Wrap: Week Two
Mon 6th November, 10:00AM
A A



St George Illawarra Dragons players combined for seven tries and 43 points in week two of the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.

While Cronulla back-rower Wade Graham stole the show with four tries in Australia's 52-6 smashing of France, Dragons counterpart Tyson Frizell didn't go without after he crossed the white stripe for the Kangaroos in Canberra.

Veteran Dragons winger Jason Nightingale made a successful return to the New Zealand outfit by scoring two tries in the Kiwis' 74-6 win over Scotland in Christchurch.

Tim Lafai scored 10 points (one try, three goals) for Samoa, but along with fellow Dragon Leeson Ah Mau, it wasn't enough to defeat arch-rivals Tonga in Hamilton. Samoa must now beat Scotland to qualify for the finals.

Gareth Widdop posted nine points (four goals, one field goal) for England in their 29-10 win over Lebanon in Sydney. 2018 recruit James Graham also produced a steely showing as the Poms outclassed the unlucky Cedars.

Joe Lovodua scored his debut international try for Fiji in their 72-6 win over Wales in Townsville, while Paul Vaughan also crossed for Italy in their shutout victory of the United States of America.

Dragons winger Nene Macdonald proved the match-winner for Papua New Guinea in the most important game of the round against Ireland. Macdonald's try helped the Kumuls ensure their place in the RLWC finals.

Did you say, a centre that can DEFEND?
Either wash your mouth out or send him over right now!

Yea was thinking the same Samy, if he goes ok against better opposition he may be a Smokey for one centre spot

Blacksafake
When nene and Milne were young guys the Roosters they both played centre.
Then nene moved to the wing.
I think centre may suit him because defence is more one on one.
Less decisions on if to come up and in or stay back.

Nene still made a bad read in the Ireland game. Raced up leaving a broken line and got left in no man's land! Moreover he runs like a pussy. Imagine if he ran like Gary Lo!
