Origin and international footy should be treated as such, players should only be able to play for their hometowns.

Semi should have played for Fijji or no international footy for him at all.
It seems wrong, but we pinch Russian boxers & pole vaulters all the time. I wish the NRL would just come out and say we will not pick players in that situation.

Now that Fergo's little chum Sandor Earl is out of RL in disgrace, I wonder if Ferguson has had his tattoo altered to now read "Dugason"?
What a tosser Ferguson is and what a tosser Mal is for picking him. Hell, even Rankin should be picked before Ferguson on form.

Used to respect Semi, now I hope NZ carve him up. Far out what a joke

Fergo and Dugan will still "cruise" their way to victory

Here in NZ they showed last year's ANZAC test. Few things I noticed.

1. Phil Gould called it a five tries to two hiding, in Australia's favour.
2. Phil Gould was busy talking about something stupid while NZ put on a scrum move.
3. Australia's attack was clunky and off the mark.
4. Shaun Johnson's kicking game was on the ball.
5. The Kiwis had a really good side, with players who complimented each other.
6. Manu Vatuvei's defence will be missed by Australia, but his strong runs won't.
7. Kieran Foran looks like he's not doing a lot, but you know he's the backroom bureaucrat running the show.
8. Martin Taupau is a scary guy.

Really only one issue with this Australian side

6 too many NSW players picked

Exactly, if the NRL was really committed to developing international rugby league. There would be some short term pain, about one third of the Australian team would play for someone else, but in the long term we would have a real competitive international game.
Cheering for the mighty Wests Tigers, all the way from France.

Tamou not being a citizen of Australia should be case and point really...if you want to play for your country you must be fully committed.

For Australia, England and New Zealand, this should be the standard. It would stop players jumping whenever they get the opportunity. It would mean you would have had to live in your country of choice for 4-5 years AND become a citizen of said country.
