Apparently Cleary is in doubt with a knee injury
 
The National Rugby League (NRL) has finalised its determination of the Breach Notice issued to North Queensland Cowboys player Valentine Holmes on 13 September 2023.

The NRL has determined to impose the following penalty: a one (1) Match suspension, a fine in the amount of $25,000, a requirement to undertake appropriate remediation and attend such education and training as advised by the NRL.


The player was selected for the Australian Kangaroos squad today and will therefore serve the Match suspension in the Kangaroos’ first Test Match of the upcoming Pacific Championships.
So in other words Holmes gets zero games suspension. Yep sounds about right...

Jurbo will be one of the first names on the team sheet, Mal loves him. Carrigan must be a decent shot at an edge too.


I find it interesting that both Critter and Taulagi elected to play for Samoa. Both would have started for us.
 
Cleary is out for Aus, Hynes called up.

I guess this gives DCE a chance at a swansong.
 
No Walsh or Ponga with Tedesco selected as Captain.

Is he blackmailing Mal or is Mal just broken?
 
Have re-named the thread to a more holistic discussion of the internationals. From NZ's squad, I think their team looks decent even with their outs (Johnson, Riki, Bromwich x2 - Jesse had retired, Kenny is an unknown right now):

1. Nicoll-Klokstad
2. Mulitalo
3. Manu
4. Timoko
5. Isaako
6. Brown
7. Hughes
8. Leota
9. Levi
10. Fisher-Harris
11. Nikora
12. Papli'i
13. Asofa-Solomona

14. Foran/Kini
15. Tapine
16. Thompson
17. Neame/Greig
 
Tonga:

1. Koula
2. Hopoate
3. Suli/To'a
4. Hurrell
5. Tupou
6. Lolohea
7. Katoa
8. Fonua-Blake
9. Havili
10. Fotuaika
11. Olakau'atu
12. Koloamatangi
13. Tatola

14. Fainu
15. Sele
16. Kaufusi
17. Frizell

AMAZING forward pack, weak in the backs and halves which is a shame because if they had someone to direct them around, they'd be scary. Katoa will likely get there but he isn't there yet.
 
Samoa:

1. Fa'alogo
2. Arthars
3. Tago
4. Crichton
5. To'o
6. Sandwich
7. Asi
8. Paulo
9. Chan Kum Tong
10. Utoikamanu
11. Leilua
12. Luki
13. Palasia

14. Hunt
15. Leniu
16. May
17. Lemuelu

Shame this side has an absolute chasm at 6 and 7.

Samoa v Tonga should settle the age old debate of does a team of elite backs defeat a team of elite forwards lol
 
Addo-Carr has been dumped, he's in trouble for the Koori KnockOut...eh...knock out.

Edwards called in.

Interesting that they aren't going to let him serve the suspension in the internationals
