    I'll be looking forward to this game. Real surprised how Louis Anderson got into the Kiwi squad - he's awful ... but we'll soon see.

    Almost had a heart attack when I saw Danny Buderus in the 2nd row, Fitzgibbon at hooker and Kennedy and Luke O'Donnell at props... Then I realised you had put the backrow in first for some reason lol

    Tate? Couldn't even make a beaten Qld team in the Origin and was playing on the wing for the nags at season's end.

    What happened to Bennet's other poster boy, Berrigan?

    I thought Tate was a standout in the late season games in an otherwise jaded Broncos team. Berrigan had a very ordinary end to the year.

    I cant believe Mattai didn't make the Kiwi team. :)

    It should be a slaughter though. But the players could be a little rusty.

    40-26 Aussies

    Glad O'Donnell made the side, he adds some mongrel and he deserves it.

    Tate was the form Bronco towards the end of the season but I think Cooper deserves a shot for 2 years of consistant form!!!!

    Tate is in because Bennett tries his best to only pick his friends. If he was allowed to he'd pick the Brisbane side plus a few extra other players that he likes.

    The thing that stinks is Australia could win with his Broncos. Maybe his picking them to even things up :)

    For mind the coach should be in charge of selections - if the team fails his head will be on the chopping block. If he is to be accountable for results (and that is a big if) then he should be able to pick who he wants.
    It does make you think about the whole Ennis thing though - no wonder they can fit him under the cap, go to the broncos and you could play for Australia....kinda like the bozo days
