    In todays Big League there is a story on the International eligibilty rules and how Steve Matai has chosen Samoa over NZ. The second paragraph of that story is as follows:

    'Matai, who last played for the Kiwis in 2009, will miss Samoa's test against Tonga at Centrebet Stadium next Saturday night through injury but wants to represent his country come the end-of-season comp.'

    Surely a journalist wouldn't make an error?

    Maybe it's a similar injury to the one Choc had for Manly in the pre-season. He couldn't play in the All Stars match but played in the trail match against the Sharks.

    I read somewhere last week "Barring injury Matai will represent Samao" ? I thought it was an odd thing to write.

    And coopers ongoing chronic injury that forces him out of games depending on how close they are to his house

    He is just assuming he will get injured against Cronulla. Fair assumption too.

    I think it's where Sao was born?

    Haha! Perhaps the thread title should be, "Is Matai about to be injured?".

    Does anyone actually think Matai has been 100% injury free ever in the last 4 years?

    Exactly, Matai has an amazing threshold of pain. Still in awe of how he stayed on at AAMI with one shouler and one leg :angel:

    He wants to play in the World Cup and next week's game is irrelevant to that. The 12 day's rest is what he needs.

    The Sloth should nominate for Tonga as he won't be a Roo again :idea:

    In today's Smellygraph:

    Tempering news of Glenn's return is the possible loss of centre Steve Matai with a fractured finger that could keep him sidelined for three to four matches.

    Would probably be Symonds to centre. Covered for Matai there in round 2 i think it was.
