The one in which your mate Shrekles started a discussion to that very effect?


You wot mate? I merely commented that the large Jaapie bloke developed by Queensland appears to be a rather devastating scrummager. You brought the Crusaders into it.

Additionally, Jason Jenkins (AC joint) and Burger Odendaal (rib) have recovered and will be in contention for selection this week.

Almost the entire Reds squad is banned/arrested/discarded/injured. I hear they’re even recruiting toddlers from the PYC kiddie dance hour they run at the stadium.

5 yellows and a red between these two teams over two games so far. I'm expecting Mr Nutbrown to have his hands in his pockets all game

PNG and NZ are essentially our overseas territories.

The PIs used to be satellite states also but they're now owned by China...

So RWC 2023 a great deal of this team will be eligible to play for China.

And the Australian born ones, too, I take it ... ?

!2 OS. 11 local born.
Most from surrounding areas, which is fine - supplying work to the region. 2 Saffers, which is OK, charity work, supplying work to the poor and downtrodden.

Australia is such a magnanimous country ... Fine fellas, they are.

100% Boer. Klingon, that would be.

Edit: Waiting for the next Great Trek - we want to move deeper into Africa.

Eit 2 :
Saffer rugby players, all except the top elite. are comparatively poor and downtrodden. They get paid in ZA Rand... and not quite enough. SARU as well as the franchises/Unions are cheapskate slave traders and oppressors, living off the sweat of the poor players..

Poor and downtrodden, now. In two generations' time half of Oz will be working for them (and the family Li)

In five generations' time we will see a bloody revolution in Oz, overthrowing the ex-Saffers' government. Siting "prejudice".

Most of this team were born in such exotic Ozzie places as New Zealand, Papa-New-Guinea, Fiji and Tonga.
Cosmopolitan Australia.

Whether folk were locally-born has long been a vexed question.

Here is the definitive breakdown.

1. James Slipper (C) – Bond University Straya
2. Brandon Paenga-Amosa - Sunnybank NZ
3. Taniela Tupou - Brothers Tonga
4. Izack Rodda - Easts Straya
5. Kane Douglas - Norths Straya

9. James Tuttle – GPS Straya
10. Jono Lance – University of Queensland Straya
11. Eto Nabuli – GPS Fiji
12. Samu Kerevi – Souths Fiji
13. Chris Feauai-Sautia – Souths NZ
14. Filipo Daugunu – Wests Fiji
15. Aidan Toua – Easts Nuigini

16. Alex Mafi – Bond University Straya
17. JP Smith – GPS Seth Efrika
18. Sef Fa’agase – University of Queensland NZ
19. Harry Hockings – University of Queensland Straya
20. Angus Scott-Young – University of Queensland Straya
21. Tate McDermott – University of Queensland Straya
22. Hamish Stewart – Bond University Straya
23. Duncan Paia’aua - Norths NZ

In summary: overseas-born the majority (13 of 23) with NZ the biggest contributor (six, five of whom were born in Auckland).

7. Liam Wright – Easts
8. Caleb Timu – Souths
9. James Tuttle – GPS
10. Jono Lance – University of Queensland
11. Eto Nabuli – GPS
12. Samu Kerevi – Souths
13. Chris Feauai-Sautia – Souths (50th Queensland/Super Rugby cap)
14. Filipo Daugunu – Wests (run-on debut)
15. Aidan Toua – Easts

16. Alex Mafi – Bond University
17. JP Smith – GPS
18. Sef Fa’agase – University of Queensland
19. Harry Hockings – University of Queensland
20. Angus Scott-Young – University of Queensland
21. Tate McDermott – University of Queensland
22. Hamish Stewart – Bond University
23. Duncan Paia’aua - Norths


Most of this team were born in such exotic Ozzie places as New Zealand, Papa-New-Guinea, Fiji and Tonga.
Cosmopolitan Australia.

Whether folk were locally-born has long been a vexed question.

Here is the definitive breakdown.

1. James Slipper (C) – Bond University Straya
2. Brandon Paenga-Amosa - Sunnybank NZ
3. Taniela Tupou - Brothers Tonga
4. Izack Rodda - Easts Straya
5. Kane Douglas - Norths Straya
6. Adam Korczyk – University of Queensland NZ
7. Liam Wright – Easts Seth Efrika
8. Caleb Timu – Souths NZ
9. James Tuttle – GPS Straya
10. Jono Lance – University of Queensland Straya
11. Eto Nabuli – GPS Fiji
12. Samu Kerevi – Souths Fiji
13. Chris Feauai-Sautia – Souths NZ
14. Filipo Daugunu – Wests Fiji
15. Aidan Toua – Easts Nuigini

16. Alex Mafi – Bond University Straya
17. JP Smith – GPS Seth Efrika
18. Sef Fa’agase – University of Queensland NZ
19. Harry Hockings – University of Queensland Straya
20. Angus Scott-Young – University of Queensland Straya
21. Tate McDermott – University of Queensland Straya
22. Hamish Stewart – Bond University Straya
23. Duncan Paia’aua - Norths NZ

In summary: overseas-born the majority (13 of 23) with NZ the biggest contributor (six, five of whom were born in Auckland).


When you add in the NZ born coach you can understand why they are our favourite Aussie team.

I would have kept the same 10 / 12 combination.
