Aus / NZ Team Selections

Post by WestsBenTigers » Sun 09 Apr, 2017 8:56 pm

Hey guys,

With the Test on May 5 (less than a month away) who do you think should be selected.
I will support Wests Tigers through thick or thin
I will be cheering when they win
I will love the Tigers Till I Die
With loyal supporters we will fly
I love the Tigers with my heart and soul
I just love the club as a whole
If the Wests Tigers believe
We will Unite, Commit and Achieve

From the NZ team, I would have Whare at left centre and Kahu on the bench as a utility.
I would have Taumalalo on the bench as an impact player with ET starting lock.
If Proctor isn't fit than I would have Thompson starting and Matulino on the bench

From the Aussie team,
I would have J Trbojevic at lock instead of Klemmer.
Vaughan instead of Boyd
And find a way to get Coen Hess and possibly Wade Graham in the side.
Being a tigers fan I would have Nofoaluma on the wing instead of Ferguson.
I would have Joey Leilua/Croker/Walker playing in the centres with Jack Bird being the bench utility.
Teddy @ fullback instead of Boyd.
If Thurston isn't fit to play than I would have Cody Walker or DCE playing 5/8

1. Tedesco

The packs are similar to those that played the three tests at the back end of 2016 and it was the Kiwi's pack that was blown apart. I was expecting much better from their pack but they were comfortably outplayed. JWH was particularly unimpressive. Moreover, in Australia's favour is that Papaali will be available this time.
