Test match 2018 NZ AUS


There is no A.I. Just better computers
Munster in, munster out. Replaced by Keary.


MELBOURNE Storm star Cameron Munster has withdrawn from the Australian Test squad for “personal reasons”, according to the team’s Twitter account.
Munster has been replaced in the Kangaroos squad by Sydney Roosters half Luke Keary, who won the Clive Churchill Medal in last week’s NRL grand final against Munster’s Storm.

“It’s unfortunate to lose Cameron for the next two matches but there are far more important things in life than football sometimes,” coach Mal Meninga said. “We’ve brought Luke straight into the squad and he fully deserves the opportunity after what was a fantastic season.

“He’s delivered on big occasions countless times over the past few years and I’ve got no doubt he’ll deliver again if called upon during the next two weeks.”

Opinions please. What if, (and I mean what if) TT plays outstanding in the Test match at centre. Does "the new coach for Manly" consider having a Test team centre, at centre for Manly, and go shopping for a new fullback? Guess same conundrum with GE at Souths, wants to play fullback but a better centre.

I wonder if on the basis of not being able to recruit new players, would we be able to find a replacement from the junior players easier than a centre? I just think we were defensively crap out wide and having TT out there on one side would save us more points than he scores?
