ORIGIN/INTERNATIONALS

Since we're coming into Origin season, we might like to think about how it's going to affect our playing roster and recovery time. Here is the schedule, and how it will impact us.

IMPACTROUNDDATEOPPONENT
InternationalsSaturday, June 25
Origin 2Sunday, June 26
Week to recover16Saturday, July 2Cowboys
Missing players17Sunday, July 10Dragons
Origin 3Wednesday, July 13
Backing up: 3 days18Saturday, July 16Titans

We have 2 remaining games to be affected by representative matches:

Dragons in Round 17 - players away at Origin
Titans in Round 18 - players resting or backing up

Three internationals will be played on Saturday, June 25. That's a week before the Cowboys match so recovery and availability shouldn't be an issue. The matches are:

NZ vs Tonga
Samoa vs Cook Islands
PNG vs Fiji

Actually Riki has kind of made the team. He's the "replacement." Te Maire is a "reserve."
Ah the dreaded shadow player. No one ever wanted that title when vying for rep selection as a kid.

That great development club the Roosters have the same amount I believe. We have 3.

Also, no... if anything, the past 10 years when we have had 10 in the side has shown us its completely irrelevant. You either buy them when they become good anyway (eg roosters mentality, although they've done it a bit earlier lately) and save on scouting and overall benefit to the game with no punishment and all the benefit to you, or you pick the right 3 or 4 with good timing.
Sorry, I thought we only had Mozer. Who are our 3?

Ben te kura and harrydn Wilson. Jye grey was but just signed for rabbitohs, xavier va'a was until roosters decided to "develop" him. Sure I'll get corrected for some technicality here...

Tonga badly need a spine to compete, the team is a bit weaker then last time they played.
Yeah now that they're not flying under the radar they'll struggle to compete with that spine. On the other hand the kiwi spine looks great.

Staggs not having a good game.

Shame you can't inject Samoa's potential spine into Tonga. Combined they would be one heck of a team with the likes of Luai, Crichton, etc.
