Internationals Kiwis vs Tonga

Cces

Our World Cup winning Captain, Nathan Cayless was born in Sydney... Nightingale also, and now Scott Sorensen is added to the side, also born in Sydney. I am sure there are others also born outside of NZ who have done the Kiwi Jersey proud... so it can go both ways.
Dead right. Remember when Sydney born & raised Frank Pritchard put a shot on the "turncoat" Karmichael Hunt?
Sam McKendry & Josh Hoffman are another 2 recent Australian born & raised Kiwis. Definitely not a 1 way street

How does everyone feel about Mulitalo repping the black jersey?
All good. He'll never qualify for Queensland, played for the Ellerslie Eagles as a youngster and his form this season has been worthy of his selection.

If he’s the best pick him, probably always wanted to play Kiwis just got lured by the SOO pay day, and that my friends is why International football plays 2nd fiddle to SOO and Aussie will always have 1st pick of players and why Kiwis will struggle because you can have your cake and eat it too by being eligible for a Tier 2 nation if you play SOO and don’t make the Kangaroos $$$

Sadly they have. There's some detail about it here:


A mid-season NZ v Tonga / NZ v Samoa test match or tri-series could have grown into something really great alongside State of Origin.

Read Des Haslers comments here about this season, you'll probably shake your head in disbelief:

Yeah bit of an asshole move. Shows the Aussies don't give a damn about international league.

I have a couple of questions for everyone.
1. Is Niukore at centre and Manu at FB better than TMM at FB and Manu at centre? He hasn't played FB at Roosters at all to my knowledge. I would have thought Hiku/Manu would be a pretty dangerous combo?

2. Should JWH be in instead of Leota or Nikora? JFH, NAS, Tapine offers abundance of mongrel but JWH would round out a pretty junkyard dog, don't mess with me, bad muthafucker Wolfpack I would think? Or do you think Leota and Nikora offer more variety/mobility and that's what we need more?

Manu has played a few games at fullback for the chooks and has done a pretty decent job at it. Niukore is as good at centre as he is in the 2nd row so I'm pretty happy with the selection they have gone with.
