Alex Twal too. I don't think either are injured but maybe their clubs have blocked them from playing. There's also Adam Doueihi from Souths, not sure if he was available for selection but he's a shoe in for that squad.

Tonga only have 1 half and a utility in Asiata so what happens If one injures themself before the game?

It's taken a long time but I think it's great that we are finally starting to see the international teams being able to take advantage of heritage, and dual eligibility, and be able to field much stronger teams.

The LRLF replied to comments about these 3 players missing saying they were unavailable to be picked due to "NRL commitments".

If the NRL wants to grow the actual International game they need to start seriously dealing with players pulling out of rep games for no reason.

The International game went from a total joke to actually having some competitive teams once they changed the rules for dual eligibility. They need to go a step further and enforce the rules and also allow players to represent 2nd tier nations while playing origin.

You can play for QLD and Fiji IMO.

Josh Mansour ruled out by "club doctor". Bet ya he'd be playing NRL this week if there was a game.

CNK, Tapine and Rapana all mysteriously ruled out by the Raiders too. I'm sure they all suffered horrible injuries at training this morning.

So Isaako has switched allegiances to Samoa ... i wonder if that is permanent or just because he is a better chance of a game for Samoa than NZ

Put that half decent Samoan spine in the Tongan side, they’d give Australia a run as would easily account for NZ.
