    Only two manly players named - Watmough and DCE, and both on the bench. No Foran for NZ

    This is perfect. The players need the break. This will help Manly later.

    City and Country to come, can't see many other Manly players being named there as the qualifying ones are all off injured. Maybe Buhrer and Wolfman?

    My guess is Buhrer will get a CVC gig.

      2 on the bench for the Roos none in Kiwis probably only Buhrer in city. 2011 premiers only 6 months ago and a very paultry representation. Speaks volumes for how bad we are going.

      I don't see any sense in playing DCE on the bench, he should either start or miss out altogether. I'd have Gillett on the bench.[hr]
      T-REX, G Stewart would have made the team if not suspended or injured.

      DCE on the bench doesn't make sense to me either, but niether did having Cooper Cronk and they've done that with the QLD and Aussie sides for a few years now.

      Boyd?? He doesn't deserve his place. Morris has been playing far better, and can also cover fullback.
      The DCE selection has me stumped. He can only play half or 5/8, and unless injury strikes Cronk and Thurston will play the 80minutes. Still, it's all experience, and good luck to him.
      What's the bet JWH tries to ruffle a few Kangaroos?

      Injuries,suspensions and low number of players in rep teams could be a blessing come the end of the season.

      Why would they pick King there is no way he's gona get another origin gig and I cant see that his form warrants a rep selection. Shouldn't they be trialling up and coming origin hopefuls.

      Seriously, what's the point of picking Matt King and Steve Turner in these teams? Both are NO chance of rep honours.
      I think the two squads are very weak. And I stick by my assertion that this is a nothing match that will not have any influence on SOO selections.
      Qld don't have such a match, and we know how well this approach has worked.
