This isnt another beat up about the dogs. Just a curious pattern that has come to me of late. Des,s love of the kiwis, give thought to this method of madness for a second, des recruits NZ reps to fill spots to avoid any sort of disruption to his team during the origin periods (which is a huge chunk of the year). Take a look: Frank Pritchard: NZ Greg Eastwood: NZ Krisnan Inu: NZ Sam Perret: NZ Dene Halatau: NZ James Graham GB (Sill not available for origin) Sam Casiano: NZ Bryson Goodwin: NZ Attempted to sign: Kieran Foran: NZ Ben Teo: NZ (NZ junior, whome im sure des would have thought would never play origin till now) I may be totally wrong and just being silly, but its pretty smart if a coach actually has done this for that purpose, established NZ rep players really have nothing to look forward to out of the season besides the ANZAC test, four nations, and the world cup, they dont get the chance to play origin, which means that they are more readily available for the season with their club team. As a coach id consider them cheaper buys as they dont have that huge rep tag that the aussie players do (Excluding Benji and Kieran) As i said before i may just be jumping the gun and look like a complete idiot. But your thoughts on that topic !
