Gee, very handy for the Chooks that NZ Test regulars JWH, SBW, FPN, and SKD were all simply not chosen for the trans-tasman test. Seeing as how their players would be pretty tuckered out after the World Cup, and then the World Club Challenge. Long year ahead if they want to go back to back. So the reigning premiers must be down on form. Except they recorded a smashing win on Anzac Day. Coincidence? Or influence? Obviously just coincidence ... but it's unusual and very handy one for the Chooks.
