    Obviously this game is around the corner and is pretty much origin 0.5 and an audition for origin. Here's my sides for the match and here's my sides for the clash. And @Woodsie i know how much you love my team lists so here's you go.

    City
    1.Coote (should be origin fullback this year and is better than Tedesco)
    2.Mansour (Would be Tom T if he wasn't injured)
    3.Walker (He's going to be centre next year and probably a rep centre for years to come)
    4.Takarangi
    5.Roberts
    6.Austin
    7.Sezer
    8.Paulo
    9.Peats
    10.Fifita
    11.Cartwright
    12.Graham
    13.Trbojevic (Easily the best young forward in the game, his defence around the middle is so important and tidy to us hopefully can show it for the city team)

    14.Moylan (Plays a number of positions in the backline)
    15.Campell-Gillard
    16.Klemmer
    17.Symonds (Has been playing good footy for us and deserves the call up)

    Country
    1.Wighton
    2.Gordon
    3.Croker
    4.Bird
    5.Mata'utai
    6.Maloney
    7.Hastings
    8.Tolman
    9.Rein
    10.Vaughan
    11.Frizell
    12.Thompson
    13.Fensom

    14.Boyd
    15.James
    16.Finuacane
    17.De Belin

    That potential city side just looks like a future Nsw origin side in the next 5 - 8 years. So many of these young players if they keep developing their games the way they are will be playing origin for nsw for a very long time. It is an exciting time hopefully seeing these young kids get blooded into the origin system!

    Good City team on paper.
    But picking the team is not the issue.
    It's guessing how many will pull out - or be pulled out by their clubs - from this irrelevant match?
    I'm going for eight.

    If that happens then it further confirms the joke that is now City V Country.

    I thought Hastings was a City-based junior. I know dad Kevin was living in the CC for a while, however I thought Jackson came through the Roosters' juniors?

    Blake Austin won't be playing. Ricky has said The Raiders won't let him with all his injuries.

    Most Clubs stand down their players through 'injuries' for these games.:cool:

    Bennet, the new UK Coach, has forbidden Milf to play for Samoa :mad:

    It's good experience and exposes these young Players to different coaching structures :clap:

    Rothfield leaked the City team on Twitter. Jake at prop, Walker at centre, AFB as 18th man and interestingly Coote at 5/8.

    Great, so we have about 11 players in rep round instead of a much-needed rest. Oh well, hope they have an enjoyable time.

    Hmmm... maybe picking players from many teams is probably a broadcasters ruse to maximise viewers for the various telecasts![​IMG]
