Kangaroos World Cup squad

Postby LESStar58 » Mon Oct 02, 2017 7:54 pm

Besides the Big 3 who else gets picked in the squad.

Surely, Munster partners Coops in the halves due to no Thurston. Jordan gets in the squad at best after being 18th man mid year and you'd think Finucane gets picked too. Addo-Carr a long shot.

Felise is reported to be an inclusion - rightly so too! He's been outstanding. Just like Jesse reinvented his game last year, Felise has done an outstanding job this year forming combinations.

Sadly I think Finucane misses out if Paul Kents mail is correct.
Slater, Cronk, Smith, Munster, Chambers, McLean and Kaufusi.
Not sure how JAC doesn't get picked given Suli, Rapana and Blake Ferguson not picked/eligible.
Finucane has been great for the past 3 seasons and now deserves a jersey after his GF performance.
Still happy for Munster and Filise to get a run though.

What a great tribute to the depth of the Storm team that we have 7 of the 24, plus another in Dale who would have been very close. Tim Glasby would also have been part of the conversation, and maybe the Fox too. Added to that, Tohu and NAS presumably a shoe-in for NZ, maybe Kenny, and of course Jesse would have been. Suli for Fiji . That leaves only Slade and Curtis ( junior Kangaroo ) from our GF team . Maybe even Brandon Smith might get into the Kiwi squad. That is depth !

Kamikamica will be in Fiji
Olam in PNG
Hughes was being talked about for Wales pre-injury
Young may be a sneaky for Samoa too

Jason Taumololo has pulled out of the Kiwis squad for the World Cup and will instead play for Tonga... WOW.

It is allegedly due to Kidwell's decision to overlook Bromwich and Proctor.

- Fifita has opted to play for Tonga, has been replaced by Reagan Campbell-Gillard
- Boyd has succumbed to his hamstring injury, replaced by Josh Mansour.

Tohu unfortunately unavailable for NZ due to injury. NAS and K Brom have been named in the Kiwi squad.

Fifita is no great loss. The bloke is a germ. Give his starting spot to Jordy!
