    I reckon Australia is in trouble. The Kiwi squad contains a fantastic pack of forwards, while we have so many front-line players unavailable.
    Your thoughts on our chances?

    Is Matai in the squad, and does this then count towards his suspension (more importantly).

    To be 100% honest I hope they take it up to the Aussies, will make for a much better game if they do..I assume we all agree that England are no chance?

    The kiwi's have Maria hargraves - the great white myth. 

    TBH who cares.  Bring on 2011 and home games at brookie oval with a young and enthusiastic team who won't fade in the second half

    Always put out a good forward pack. It is the centres that worry me when a guy like Sau is in the squad on his form this year, but then again he seems to have the Olsen Filipina gene of going up 5 levels in a black jumper

    Without Foran/Matai they will lose horribly

    No point having so many forwards with no decent backs bar Marshell

    This may make me an unpopular character, but I'd rather Seu Seu on the bench than Bailey as our utility too be honest.

    I'd go:-

    1. William Hopoate
    2. Ben Farrar (gone, I know)
    3. Terrence Seu Seu
    4. Tony Williams
    5. Dean Whare
    6. Chris Bailey

    in that order. Sorry guys.

    I'd rather Seu Seu tossed into a meat grinder to be honest.

    Can't understand what you blokes see in him. The only time he has done anything half good for us was against the Dragons when they were starting to take their foot off the pedal.

    His ruck defence is woeful & he seems to get confused easily (which is followed by him just running the football). DH runs aren't exactly all that good when you don't execute them immediately.

    Bailey at least has promise & 'should' be playing better than he has been. IMO Bailey will go on to be a decent player at another club, Seu Seu won't. If we are dead set on having someone other than Bailey as the bench utility then I'd much rather Liam Higgins than Seu F#*$@ng Seu.
