At utterly hopeless squad. All our best players cut, and the one who's form far from warranted a selection gets picked?
And there's a lot of nobodies in that team. Much like the former PM who may have selected them ;)

Yeah I suppose from the Tiger's point of view it's good he's not included, but I would've liked to see him earn some reward for his efforts this season as second only to RTS as the best fullback in the game.

It'd be the crumbs left over after the good players opted not to play.

[quote="Flippedy"]Wighton at fullback over Tedesco??? I give up! :crazy[/quote

There was a story somewhere around round 24 about players who were waiting till the end of the comp to have surgery for injuries. Can't remember many of the names , but Tedesco was one of them . It said that he'd had some minor problems with his knee, and was to have a clean out after the season.( it didn't sound serious at all ) but he definitely was one of them.
I'd say that those sort of niggling injuries that a lot of players have carried over the season would account for a lot of players who aren't there.
Can't remember where I saw it, but there was quite a few named

That would explain it, thanks GCT. Not saying Wighton isn't talented, but he certainly ain't Tedesco, especially at fullback.

I would've thought , that after Wightons rant on FB , or whichever Social media it was. That he'd be out of the good books for a while?

It was so well thought out this game

If the Hunters had beaten Ipswich this weekend we would of played a team from the local comp , probably a lower standard of footy than RMC

That would of done wonders for the International game

NRL are just geniuses
