Jones and Williams added to Kiwis' squad
27 September 2006

The New Zealand selectors have added another five players to the Kiwis and New Zealand A train-on squads.

Les Catalans Dragons halfback Stacey Jones is the first player from the UK Super League competition to be added to the train-on squad.

Jones was one of the stars of the Kiwis' 2005 Tri-Nations campaign and has played a huge role in the Dragons' debut year in the Super League competition.

Four Bulldogs players - Sonny Bill Williams, Roy Asotasi, Matt Utai and Ben Roberts - have also been added to the squad.

The Bulldogs were knocked out of the NRL finals last weekend after being beaten by the Broncos 37-20 in the preliminary final.

The Kiwis kick off their Tri-Nations campaign on October 14 against the Kangaroos at Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland.

The New Zealand A side will play Australia A on October 21 at Melbourne's Telstra Dome in the curtain raiser to the Kiwis' second game against their Australian rivals.

Train-on squad additions: Sonny Bill Williams, Roy Asotasi, Matt Utai, Ben Roberts (Bulldogs), Stacey Jones (Les Catalans).

I would have been suprised if he wasnt named tbh..hes had a good year :) .. bar injuries and suspensions.

Utai has been fairly good on attack, I feel, but defence is still his weakness. He would do well if he was paired up with a defensively strong centre.

He was in trouble a bit for suspension this season and seemed a bit hot and cold at times, though I would have him in my team along with Vatuvei.
