Kiwis named this Sunday night, anyone want to Hazard a guess?

I think (not what I'd pick), that we'll see:

Locke
Nightingale
Matai
Kenny-Dowall
Vatuvei
Marshall
Foran
Waerea-Hargreaves
McKendry
Glenn
Mannering
Smith

Brown
MoiMoi
Matulino
Rapira

What I'd like to actually see would be closer to:

1-Hoffman
2- Nightengale
3-SKD
4-Matai
5-Perret
6-Benji
7- Foran (if not, Johnson)
8- Matulino
9-Luke
10-JWH
11-Proctor
12-Mannering
13-Smith

14- Papalii
15- Moimoi
16- Tamou (if he declares, if not Kasiano, if not Bromich)
17- Glenn

I would think Hoffman would definitely retain his spot. He's playing well too.

Retain his spot? He's never had that spot....
Sorry, no he hasn't. He got selected then pulled out through injury last year though? Why did I think he had already been considered as first choice ahead of Locke?

He's not needed.

Having said that Hooker (along with centre) is one position we have NO depth in, and have no talent coming through the junior/reserve grade ranks outside of perhaps Matt Mciiwrick.

Where as at least with the centres we have some half decent fringe players coming through e.g. Chase Stanley, Drury Low, Hurrell, Likiliki, Whare, lafai etc

he pulled out before selection. So officially Locke is the incumbent on every level.

Right. Well I'd expect Hoffman to be in the mix this time unless Kevin does something brilliant this weekend.

Never been a huge fan of MoiMoi in the Kiwi jersey...

Yeah, to this day the last thing I can remember Moimoi doing is getting smashed by a certain Englishman

Either way, Moi moi is in form and should be picked.

Fair enough. I'm a little tempted to play Sammy, but he came back from injury a bit too late.

Id play Bromich before Rapira.

In my humble opinion, the current propping pecking order (making the assumption that Tamou and Kasiano pick the kiwis) should be:

McKendry > JHW > Tamou > Matulino > Moimoi > Bromich > Rapira > Kasiano > Ben Murdoch Masala > Louisi > Lesson Ah Mau > Packer >

Package has fallen from grace.

That's probably a fair order. JWH has been in good form this year. Particularly against us.

I'd pick Bromwich over Sam too, he's fit and playing well in a rampant Storm outfit.

How's SKD and Perret doing? The last time I watched them was when they were up against the Warriors.

Both in good form. Perret is always solid, and SKD is coming back into his own.

Perret is one of the best kick returners in the league (and a rock on D), so is a must have for me.

Shit I just remembered! Last years ANZAC test was supposed to be played in Christchurch before we had the bliddy earthquakes. Now we have a nice, new stadium that would be the safest place in Canterbury. When do the Kiwi's get to come back down here? The warriors too while we're at it.
