I dont think the english based players are available..

Stacey and Benji are out now..

Karmichael Hunt hasnt made up this mind yet..

Nigel Vagana is only just coming back from injury this weekend or the next, and will be way down on match fitness..

7: Lance Hohaia
6: Jerome Ropati

Ropati is still finding his feet at 6 again, and Hohaia isnt even playing 1st grade at the moment, but its the best we've got I think. At least these two have played test football before.

Yeah, if Benji is out and Karmichael isn't coming out of the closet then Jerome Ropati and Lance Hohaia would have to be your options. Unless Vagana returns in good form and wants the number 6 jersey.

Robbie Paul and Thomas Lealuai will both be available. I think Hunts chances of playing for the Kiwis went downhill without his good friend Benji there. We're going to have to win this match in the forwards.

Yep thats right. Thats why I am all for what Gouldy said.
What??? If you're talking about Kiwis being eligible for Origin, then that would get a great big NO from me.

when Covell was playing first divison he was playing halfback for balmain, at least its a posistion which isn't new to him.

Probably Vagana at 6 - he's the incumbent after all.
And Hiho at 7. I'm rather concerned that he may not be up to test footy given he's been stuck in BC for most of the season so far. Then again, the test is a one off - he's got big game experience and usually steps up for internationals.

But, Covell at 7? eh.. what the?

Hohaia at no7 (please Cleary give him a run in the Warriors squad, give him time to find his feet, the kiwis need him. )
no6 is a hard one to choose, but definatly Hohaia at no7, Faumuina or Vagana at no6 theirs no other option i don't think.
