Kiwi's Test Side



  • Lots of tigers as you would expect, however one extra i didn’t know we had signed LOL

    Initial New Zealand Four Nations Squad:

    Gerard Beale (St George Dragons), Adam Blair (Wests Tigers), Fa’amanu Brown (Cronulla Sharks), Sosaia Feki (Cronulla Sharks), David Fusitua (New Zealand Warriors), Siliva Havili (New Zealand Warriors), Valentine Holmes (Cronulla Sharks), Konrad Hurrell (New Zealand Warriors), Shaun Johnson (New Zealand Warriors), Ngani Laumape (New Zealand Warriors), Thomas Leuluai (New Zealand Warriors), Simon Mannering (New Zealand Warriors), Suaia Matagi (New Zealand Warriors), Ben Matulino (New Zealand Warriors), Matt McIlrick (Canberra Raiders), Jason Nightingale (St George Dragons), Sauaso Sue (Wests Tigers), Brad Takairangi (Wests Tigers), Martin Taupau (Wests Tigers), Bodene Thompson (Wests Tigers), Manu Vatuvei (New Zealand Warriors)



  • Interesting



  • Well let’s hope it’s true and not a misprint. Tankrangi and naiquama would both be great signings. Both good centres in a position we are weak in



  • Not enough warriors.

    Well deserved to all the players. We are getting a lot of rep rewards lately. Simona Ava etc playing for Samoa as well.

    I think individually the players have not had that bad a year. We’ve struggled keeping the intensity up from the earlier rounds.

  • How does someone as average as mcillrick get picked and someone like Ava get overlooked? Ava deserves a spot over Sue and Blair IMO

    Ave plays for Samoa.



  • Train-on squad, not test side. Also, wasn’t Holmes named in the Junior Kangaroos squad? Thought I read that he declared for Australia/Queensland?



  • Also happy to be corrected but is this Bodene’s first rep jumper (i know its the squad and not the final team)
    Nice recognition for a fine year for him anyway.



  • Pretty sure it’s Bodenes first rep jumper. If he makes the squad if course.

    So does this mean Simona has pledged for Samoa? Cos he was picked in the Kiwis training squad last year aswell?

  • Benji probably unlucky to miss out
