    Interesting. Every single source over here has Matai missing out as well. Wonder if injuries forced a change

    Fairly meagre representation for a club in the top five at City-Country level. As for Australia, with Emilio and Charlie's Uncle Tim as coach, well who cares?

    I know I keep on saying it, but we haven't been full strength since 2008 GF and I don't see it happening any time soon.

    Hahahaha Greg Inglis.
    He wouldn't den be in the top 10 centres this season.
    Buhrer was a better centre than Inglis.

    Congrats NZ on your win next Friday!

    What a pathetic overated Kangaroos side, guess it shows they really don't give a crap about the the Test matchs anymore. Oh and did anyone notice that only 3 of those guys arn't super league players?

    Is Lyon injuried??? I thought he would be country captain. This rep season could be like 2008 and really help us.

    Selector being interviewed now, the questioned was asked about Matai, response was he has done nothing wrong, no discipline issues or anything, just that they wanted big solid centres and mannering has done the job before

    Who is Duffle ? or is that Duffie from Melb ? That would have to be a bit of a bolter if that is the case. Do they rate Mannering's defence over Matai's or something ? SKD would be the bigger worry in that department.

    Yeah the Melbourne winger mate, iPhone autocorrect got me there

    From the sound of it they wanted mannerings soild defence beside duffie on debut. Duffie has been talked about for a month or so now.

    This is wonderful.

    No Manly players in the test teams - AWESOME

    I hope they beat the crap out of each other. This suits me, I have absolutely no interest in these merry go rounds they call test matches.

    Let em play, I'm watching Pippa Middelton videos.
