Is there really a point in naming a combined 64 man ‘squad’?
The 34 senior squad seems excessive. I guess the idea is that they've got their first and second XIII together and it just allows them ingratiate the players and give them a sense of where they stand. In the past, the NSWRL has really struggled to communicate with the players and it developed a culture of self preservation which wasn't healthy in a team environment.

The other squads are just introductory camps to give emerging talent a feel for rep football and the NSWRL structures. They're at a different stage, so the sessions are designed specifically for their level.

I thought some of the omissions were interesting. Here's a few that I thought would be in contention:

Jack Bird, Jarrod Croker, Josh Jackson, Josh Dugan, Matt Moylan, Tyrone Peachey, Adam Reynolds etc.

There's a few from the polynesian countries as well like Daniel Tupou and Will Hopoate but I could understand the NSWRL taking the stance that they've got to be all in to qualify.

Ho would you feel being one of those guys......Jack Bird, Jarrod Croker, Josh Jackson, Josh Dugan, Matt Moylan, Tyrone Peachey, Adam Reynolds

They name 64 players and you still don't make the cut?
