Adam Blair, Kieran Foran, Alex Glenn, Bronson Harrison, Aaron Heremaia, Lance Hohaia, Issac Luke, Sika Manu, Benji Marshall, Steve Matai, Ben Matulino, Jason Nightingale, Frank-Paul Nuuausala, Sam Perrett, Sam Rapira, Junior Sa’u, Zeb Taia, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves
Benji Marshall is captain. I am guessing Foran will play halfback.
Not as strong as first thought probably line up like this
11 Warea - Hargreaves
15 Manu (very surprised hasnt played a game all year)
Halatau is injured. As is Fuifui, Pritchard and Asotasi.
Very suprised there’s no Lima or Inu named.
A little concerned with the inexperience. Might be a long night ahead for the World Champions.
If NZ keep the aussie’s classy backline under 30+ points, they’ve done well.
Only way to beat the australian side is to score points.
On paper this squad doesn’t stand a chance. Kiwi’s usually get thumped in the ANZAC test… they need a tri-nations or a world cup to build and gel together over a few weeks before they can match the Aussies. But the Kangeroos can just flick the switch, turn up after a few light training sessions, ooze class and destroy them without too much effort.
