Still think Minicello will feature at fullback but after my success NOT at tipping this weekend don't take any notice of me

Fair result at Quins by the sound of it Bill but didn't help my tipping:curse:

Anybody going on Friday night by the way??? Just been to pick up my tickets so will be shouting for the green and gold with the rest

I plan to go, haven't got a ticket yet, probably get one tomorrow night on way home. Don't think I will be shouting for the green n golds though, I have always planned to support Australia at sport but when it comes down to it I can't forget all the pain and humiliation they have inflicted on British RL for as long as I have watched it.

Don't you think most of the pain and humiliation has been self inflicted:curse:
As long as we insist on picking players for their past reputation mainly from the 'big four' clubs and not on current form from ALL the Super league clubs nothing will change.

Yes, It seems to be one of them things that everyone agree's on but never changes and it happens in most sports and countries.http://britishexpats.com/forum/image...s/confused.gif

There is also the "were playing in Brisbane so we need to include x amount of bronco players" attitude. Which does mean we have a few Hull players in the GB squad for games at the KC etc

That is complete rubbish -The Kangaroos have policy of where possible keeping a winning side and as this was a winning side from last seasons Tri Nations most players have kept their place - Besides are you telling me that Lockyer, Hodges, Hunt and Civoniceva dont deserve their places??? admitedly Tate should not be there and I can understand Berrigan being picked as Mr Utility - The NSW dominated ARL do not do Qld any favours let alone pick x amount of Broncos because were at Suncorp

Have to agree wholeheartedly with you there Johno, why break up a winning side. I do think however Matt Bowen has more than earned a place in the side with his early form and I would have picked him over Karmichael Hunt but then again what do I know

Whem was the last time Sonny Bill and Benji Marshall featured for the Kiwis?? And how come the ARL clubs havent done theur usual trick of pulling Kiwi players (espicially Doggies) out of test matches with "injuries" ??.They muct be ultra-confident on this game.Agree with Loz,current form should be Bowen,but they wont lose much with Harmichael in the side.

I disagree about Bowen - Yes he's great going forward but his defence is not up to much and he's shocking under the high ball hence the reason he was dropped from Origin for Hunt - maybe they should have picked him instead of Berrigan to run from dummy half and cover the backline????

Hmmm sounds familiar aren't Bradford famous for the 'injury' ploy? As in Leslie Vainakolu twice and probably Solomona next time he gets a call up:curse:
It's a good job most clubs have some integrity.
