    NZ v AUS Rugby League Test- May 5

    Apparently Benji could be fit in time. If he is I am confident we will win by 13+

    You guys are just lucky Jones isn't playing...

    im confident Australia will win very easily, 40+ imo...
    Locky will dominate, Hodges will score 3 tries, Bailey will smash wiki into oblivion...
    too easy for the aussies...

    Bailey should focus on getting his forward pack going forward first... something that didn't happen a lot last year.

    Should be a good game. I expect Oz to want to make a statement after last year's tri-nations, so I take them by about 18-24.

    BBC reckons Solomona, Leuluai & Cayless are being released to play for NZ.

    "Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

    I read Solomona, Leuluai and Cayless will be allowed to fly over to play. Why the **** does Solomona feature in NZs plans?


    Edit: Beaten to it by that ******* Brumby.

    Cause he is a good ball player?

    Solomona is alright, prone to a few errors with ball in hand though. Played well in the Tri Nations.

    Hmm we don't need Leuluai... If he plays then I think Simon's prediction could be close to the mark.

    Why aren't they releasing the Volcano? ffs the way international league is run is a joke.

    Cayless is good, Leuluai and Solomona are duds though...
    neither are up to NRL standard and NZ are desperate to get them into a test match, says a lot really...

    Who plays at halfback, then? Leuluai is decent, and getting better. I like the cut of his jib. Perhaps not ready to play Test rugby, but he could be sometime, imo.

    i think this could be the time to pick my test side though

    1 Matt Bowen
    2 Matt King
    3 Justin Hodges
    4 Mark Gasnier
    5 Timana Tahu
    6 Darren Lockyer
    7 Andrew Johns
    8 Luke Bailey
    9 Danny Buderus
    10 Petero Civoniceva
    11 Nathan Hindmarsh
    12 Michael Crocker
    13 Ben Kennedy
    Reserves
    14 Mark O'Meley
    15 Willie Mason
    16 Steve Simpson
    17 Trent Barrett

    Minichiello wont be fit so ive gone with Bowen, Thurston is either starting or not there, so hes being left out... the rest picks themselves, its a well balanced side and i think it will get the job done...

    Marshall if he is fit... Or Jeremy Smith, Marcus Perenara. Anyone but Leulaui.

    Lol Simon it says a lot about the Australian side who lost to NZ last year with Solomona in the team if you believe he is not up to NRL standard.

    he had his chance in the nrl, he was crap so he moved to the retirement village... I think we can put the tri nations behind us now and again show we are clearly the number 1 nation...

    Solomona is labelled a success at Superleague because he picks on the weak teams and destroys them. He played decently in the Tri Nations but is an average player and I'd guess NZ have scores of better options down there.

    Now that's just downright arrogant. Australia will win, but by that margin?
