Depends on whether you chose to believe the media or not. To be honest I won't believe he's actually made up his mind until he pulls on a jumper that says he's made up his mind.

What if he is using Qland to put some pressure on the kiwi Camp to pick him in the 17.....

I'm not going to believe what's in the media, even direct quotes can be taken out of context. He's good enough to make either team and I'll still love to watch him play regardless of his eligibility - so yes - I would love to see him pull on the black jersey.

He has done nothing wrong... it's the system that's wrong.

Sam Kasiano would be my starting prop for the Kiwi's with Ben Matulino hands down. I have no idea how McKendry even makes the 17 let alone starting?

Jason Taumalolo should have been on the bench in the ANZAC test, I have no idea on what basis Kearney and co are selecting the international side. Furthermore James Tamou should have at least earned a bench spot last year on the Kiwis tour, he had a good season at club level. I think Kearney and co should be changed along with the rules!

He has done everything wrong. Others don't seem to have an issue with the system. Either your a Kiwi or your not. Was that to hard for Sam?
wtf are you on about

Why should he have to come out and address the media/public?
He signed a letter of intent with NZRL and hasnt reneged on that to date.
He simply hasnt being picked yet.

Yes, QLD were trying to entice him however he never said he want to play for Qld over NZ.
yes, most likely if he could play for QLD and then play for NZ he would.

But then so would have James Tamou...
However clearly he wont walk away from NZ to play for queensland.

Again why should he need to come out and address media speculation
He was availlable for the test at eden park and most likely will be available and will be selected come end of the year.

WTF are you talking about? I never mentioned the media. As for same addressing the media, isn't exacty differcult to approach the media manager of the Bulldogs and ask them to release a statment on your behalf stating you're eligibity.

Supposed proof that he is wavering towards Origin instead of NZ.

He is hedging his bets. Hold out as long as possible on making an official statement and his Origin chances may increase. But if he doesn't get the call-up then he will throw on the black jersey. That sucks. I want patriots and people who take pride in the jersey (regardless of how they meet eligibility rules), not someone who will take it as second choice.

I think all players who are in question should be forced to clarify their choice to NZ, Origin management.

It has really become such a joke that anyone can play Origin provided they haven't run out in the silver fern.

well your hating on kasiano ....for what...whats happening in the media and a lack of response
There has been no direct quotes mentioned from kasiano ...so you are just speculating re: his intentions.
he just has to worry about cotinuing to play good football...to get selected in the end of year test.

if anything I think we should thank Kasiano for flirting with origin ....in the end it will create some change

I think I remember the NZRL CEO Jim Doyle suggesting he would be an automatic selection for the test later on in the year + they'd be silly not to pick him.
