Steve Matai - has turned down the Kiwis and has made himself available for Samoa
Interesting, that's a good thing as now we won't lose him for the anzac test My rep thoughts for this year are; City/Country Taufua, Symonds and Lawrence - Taufua I think is s certainty, he seems to have a bit of media support forming, Lawrence and Symonds are roughness but if the continue to play as they have then they could sneak s jersey. I'm assuming they will overlook Stewart and Watmough as they will be locked in for Origin, whilst kite and king will be passed over I think SOO Brett and Choc, no surprises, gift not back in time. Cherry-Evans and Ballin will also be called upon should Smith or Cronk go down Tests Choc & Foran, again straight forward
Tonga are playing Samoa - Saturday the 20th of April at Parramatta
Stevie was not picked for their end of season games for NZ last season, must have had a massive falling out with the hierarchy. One of the best centres in the game, and when you have Killer on the other side, we really are lucky!!
Rep Bolters from Manly?? There should be at least a few Seaeagles selected for up coming rep honours on the back of great early season form. In limited games Symonds could well be a bolter & actually earned selection while at the Roosters before a bad run of injuries 2-3 years ago. Taufua should get a shot on the wing(Is he eligable?? & would not be suprised to see Lawrence selected if he is eligable based on his early form. I have no doubt I am bias when it comes to the Seaeagles, but are these players a chance on form??
RE: Rep Bolters from Manly?? Merge. lol
RE: Rep Bolters from Manly?? What a Shocker - just seen the "Rep players this year" thread..... Please merge while I give myself a few uppercuts.
RE: Rep Bolters from Manly?? none from st merge, maybe nightingale for the kiwis!!!
Would not be suprised to see all 3 - Lawrence, Taufua & Symonds crack rep honours- on form. Symonds could go onto further honours imo, has all the skills, toughness & is a workhorse.
It doesnt matter this year, they are having a rep weekend with no NRL games
Good on Matai!!! I've been disappointed with the Kiwi selectors over the past few years by overlooking him. While he has sometimes missed selection due to injury and suspension, other times he has been shafted. I would take Skivi any day over Mannering,Sau,SKD,Inu in the centres. While he may miss-time the odd hit, Skivi is a guy you would want to go to war with. He hits hard, runs hard and his aggressive style is perfect for Test Footy. Good on him playing for Samoa, I'm sure he'll do them proud!!!
RE: Rep Bolters from Manly?? Post pics or it didn't happen!
@[globaleagle] - don't you get your fill of this watching the NHL? lol.
RE: Rep Bolters from Manly?? - :huh: - - The sunnies are hiding the black eyes.....
Lol, too true. Always room for one more! Seen a couple already tonight. @[Mals] Nicely done!
Wolfman,tatfua, lawerence, burher kite should all be considered for city country tbh. Matai Foz for NZ ( or Samoa) DCE balin for Qld Snake Lyon (retired from reps) Choc, gift(injuries ?) for NSW That's most of the team.
Is Kite part tongan ?
Galavao may play for Samoa as well.
