    Couldn't find a thread on this and apologies if it should be posted elsewhere.

    What are everyones thoughts on the City V Country teams?

    I couldn't possibly start as i never know who qualifies for who but i think Jamie Buhrer should be locked in for a bench utility role!!!!

    One thing is for sure, 30% of the named teams will change by game day due to "minor injuries"

    Matt Cooper will be injured that week but will play for the Dragons (yes, I realise he's retired).

    Interesting to see if any players from the Anzac Day games ( Dragons, Roosters, Storm & Warriors ) pull out with these "minor injuries", but be available for the club games on Wednesday.

    Some people on the forum mightn't realise that the City v Country game is on Sunday afternoon, not leaving much recovery time for players from the 4 clubs mentioned.

    f*ck you MSIH, those hammy strains/back twinges were definitely legit! Also, Lyon has a life membership at 83 Restaurant

    I might've been a bit harsh on Coops. No-one would want to miss CvC. He's Scott Geddes unlucky.

    Just googled 83 Restaurant and it looks like it serves salad. I therefore call bs on your last statement.

    Is Fittler actually coaching City? That'll do me. I think he mentioned on the Sunday Footy Show that the form of Pettybourne warranted City selection. Problem is he's been on 2 Kiwi tours of the UK already.

    Exactly!

    Having a rep weekend would be the perfect time to play a number of test matches involving the pacific island nations, but we toss up an outdated city v country game and an under 20's game alongside the Anzac test!

    He is still unsure who to play in the halves. He's pretty keen on Marshall and Foran though.
