Tonga could be up with NZ to be the biggest threat to Australia

Are we expecting any Manly players to make the squad ? ...... if not I am going for my 2nd favourite team .... Cook Islands .
Just as a matter of interest Woodise . What is it about the Cook Islands that makes them your 2nd favourite team ?

NZ should be favourites then as the Warriors players will be well rested
That's just it, 8 Teams will be out of condition and boozed up for 8 weeks :confused:

@Spartan Eagle ....

Hey Spartacus . What the fck happened to our Greek RL team ?

They did not quality in the 2019 world cup

I think they need to recruit an inspirational never say die Icon like Zorba Peters

Zorba would put pride and passion back in the Greek Jumper

It would have been great to see them qualifying. They haven't given up and will be at it again trying to qualify for the next WCup.

The Greeks have just announced their first ever women's side. Which shows the progress our great game is making in one of the best countries in the world. They will playing in a historic match against the Turks in September. The ladies up first followed by the men's teams. Should be a fierce encounter.

My understanding is that they will be facing the Scotts and Russians later in the year as part of next world cup qualifiers.

Zorba would be a fantastic ambassador. He would fire them up for sure. But he's probably retired now and busy smashing plates..

A question to anyone who might know , are the โ€œ best of the bestโ€ chosen for these games or the best up and comers??

For example the Rugby 7โ€™s side bears no relation to the Wallabies.

Anyone know???

The Rugby is a fair bit different Mark as there are now a permanent 7's Rugby sides that are specialists just in 7's as apposed to the Super rugby sides....this is where I expected Tom Wright would really explode, where this League 9's is more a 1 off a year gig.
I reckon there will be plenty of your up and comers representing other nations from Qld and NSW Cup....even Holden Cup, but Aust, NZ, Tonga will be more players that we see at NRL level.

Lots of star players will be having surgeries or their Clubs just demanding that they rest.

Really strange timing for the 2 Clubs playing a GF on the 6th :confused:
