Kangaroos train on squad

Post by innsaneink » Sat 17 Sep, 2011 10:10 am

Now we are goornskis, who do you think will make the squad for 4N?

Lawrence? Too soon back from injury?

Heighno? Possibly, Fulton....unlikely though thats not to say he wouldnt deserve it, he would.

Kilo? Likely
Farah? Likely
Gibbs....injured...doubtful.
Moltzen...Ayshford??

I'd say Farah, Galloway will be there 100%

I'd throw in Woods as well.

Lawerence will be there as well, all the quality left centres seem to have had injury issues this year so would have to be a shot.

I can't see them picking to many with the Prime Ministers team already picked.

Sauce and Robbie at the very least will be on the train-on squad. Lawrence maybe, he was pretty much earmarked to be there at the beginning of the year.

Maybe Fults, he does deserve to be there based on his form, Gibbsy maybe, Ayshford will also be a maybe.

I guess that will all be decided Sunday night? or Monday.

Farah and Galloway would be likely IMO. Outsiders would be Ayshford, Lawrence and maybe Heighno.

Galloway, Farah and Lawrence for sure.

Oddly enough though, Rowdy is probably the best chance of getting a run depending on how Hodges goes next few weeks and GIs form having not played for a while.

Gall, Robbie will be there and my darkies for the train on squad are Aysh, Fults and Woods. The last three wont make the tour but are a good chance of training on.

I dont want Rowdy to make it as he needs to get over his injuries. His contribution to season 2011 was almost non existant. Couple that with a bad run of outs last year and I think the bloke needs a rest to get himself right for next year.

I want to see a Tigers side with Marshal, Farah and Ellis in it win the comp as they deserve it and time is running out for that combination. Lawrence has to play all next year to help that happen.

Fulton would have to be a chance the way he has been playing.

If I hear them talk about Kangaroos 'bolter' and it isn't Liam Fulton, then the selectors are kidding themselves.

But, one thing I can guarantee is a few surprise 'bolters' from guess who, the amazing Manly club. Always helps with selectors in high places.

After looking at who they have already chosen from the other clubs, I can't see any reason why Farah, Galloway, Fulton, Lawrence, Ayshford, Heighington, Woods and Gibbs (depending on injury) all shouldn't make it. Seriously, there are some real mediocre players in that list and has beens, who are retiring! - what's the point of choosing them now?? Let them retire gracefully, I say.

I think they'll take Robbie overseas as a backup for Smitty.

They are short of Props and Centres, so I'd say Keith and Rowdy will be in the final squad. Robbie I'm not so sure. He has deserved to keep his 'back-up' status to Smith, but they might wait until after the GF to decide between Robbie or Matt Ballin whether he goes or not.

I'm sure Ayshford, Fulton, Heighington and possibly Woods will make the Train On Squad, so we could have up to7 named on Monday...

In the paper it said that Robbie was a certainty to be smiths backup for the four nations. Galloway should be there as well. Lawrence might make it as well.

When we won the comp in 05 we had nil, zero, none, nada in the Australian team. Do not count your chickens even with Sheens as coach.

Didn't Prince play for Aust in '05?? I'd say Galloway will be a certainty, as will Robbie. Ayshford, Lawrence and Fulton will probably be in the train on squad but I can't see them going further. Still would be just reward for their efforts, particularly Fulton and Ayshford
