Elijah Taylor (NZ)
Russell Packer (NZ)
Mahe Fonua (Tonga)
Tuimoala Lolohea (Tonga)
Nathan Milone (Italy)

Squads have until 13th October to be named..
And this is the reason why bookies have us as spoon favourites.

Is there a reason why Suli was left out of the Tongan side?

Fifita should never be selected for NSW again after this. Knowing how shoddy the rules are though, I'm sure he'll be one of the first Blues chosen next year.

Matulino has to be unlucky, especially given no Taulmalolo, Bromwich and Proctor. Was one of the Warriors best towards the end of the year. No complaints though, means he will be fresh for us.
yep the rules allow him to choose aus/tonga. he can't choose nz/england and if he did he wouldnt be able to play origin
but why shouldn't he be selected?
Playing for you country is a higher honour then playing for your state.

If you turn down the opportunity to play for your country, you don't deserve to play for your state.
He is playing for his country!

Surely there are few more Leb heritage players running around in the NRL that could make this side a bit stronger? Mansour should be there instead of playing for Aus.

NSW is a state in Australia.

He doesn't want to play for Australia so why should he play for an Australian state?

It appears that Raymond Sabat is the token Lebo from Lebanon but he has an Anglo first name - ha ha ha.

Farah may have earnt the captaincy over Mannah due to his outstanding game against the Eels last round of Bunnies Vs Eels. Next time could be Mannah and with still Moses backing up. Moses would not dare tank it this tourney - they kill horses for less. Remember that South American soccer goalie who did an own game and did not survive the trip home.

If anyone is interested in watching a RLWC warmup game between Lebanon and Niue (currently playing at Leichhardt Oval), it is being streamed live on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LebanonRL/

thanks, many mistakes but was funny watching Farah playing half back and not getting the ball from no. 9 - for first part of game at least. Niue island only the size of a postage stamp had a decent team considering.
