I would find room For Sione at lock/second row
(if fit) also Sonny Bill
Hard choice in the centres Toopi/Vagana/Whatuira on form only.

Hard decisions....and like you say may have forgotten someone

I like your idea of using Webb in the halves where his creativity can be best displayed. Hunt can then take the custodian role where he has better positional sense. I think Cayless has played better than Asostasi this season so I would switch them. The loose forward needs to a ball player and I think Faumuina fits the bill. I like your choice of Sonny Bill on the bench as he is likely to be somewhat underdone.

I have included some UK players becuase we have not been advised they are unavailable.

I would have picked more (Solomona, Cayless, Rahihi) but have decided against it.
 
No offense but Tame Tupou is not very good. He's only scoring tries because Justin Hodges is playing well. I like his sense of humour tho, saw his try against the Eels. He coulda just dived in the corner but he deliberately ran towards Mcklannon with his shoulder in mid air. Then threw a falcon, classic.

1. Brent Webb

Similar to last years side but without the ESL players, no need to explain. I've included Faumuina hopefully he'll get 'creative' coz the Aussies won't be intimidated easily this time. SBW should be ready to play this selection will boost his confidence. Looking forward to his comeback.
 
Perhaps Tony Martin will do a Webb and play for the Kiwis?
 
i,d rather see a hack like martin wear the black jersey than a traitorous mongrel like khunt.

At least he can kick goals; otherwise it's the excruciating slowness of Brent Webb or the erratic form of Sione and Lance.

May be Karmichael can kick?
 
Just read in the paper the following players are out of contention for the Anzac test

Paleasiina
Lauatiiti
Rauhihi

Plus the judiciary usually will take a couple out as well
