the same side which I think limits him getting ball for Souths because
DT is on the left hand side of the field

GI will play against Wales; Despite running the risk of potential injury
he almost has to needs the match fitness for the Final as that was the
first game he's played in 2 or 3 months; Sheens will want him to be up
to scratch for the final.


Although both Inglis and Uate were both quiet I didn't see much quality
ball given to either to them; GI got given ball in Traffic and didn't
get any early chances with the ball; He just had very limited
opportunities as most of the play was directed towards Lewis's and
Lawrence's flank.

Sam Tomkins is very slippery and elusive and there isn't alot of him and reminds me alot of Josh Dugan but far more impressive.

Luke Lewis was one of Australia's Best and turned back the clock after
being shifted to left wing; Could definitely do a pass job or possibly
better if he is required to play there again.

The Halves for Australia were very quiet for most of it and as mentioned
above Cronk really made a big difference when he came on
.

Thurston got MoM

Laughing, they're behind 12-4 and they're saying how good England were playing. Shit, imagine if they were winning?

I was ready to jump through the tv and whack those bellend's with a cricket bat.

Dead-set, it was painful to listen to.

"Oh that's not a penalty"
"ENGLAND HAVE BEEN ROBBED THERE"
"That's a terrible decision against England"

When that try was disallowed, I thought they were going to start crying.

Lol no props for Thurston (90 metre intercept), yet when your hubby GI goes quiet, the blame goes to the other players. "limited opportunities" my ass.

Also, those commentators. So bad

I can't find the right thread to talk about this but anyways Slater is out with a broken collar bone (don't know how long for) T-rex faces a 1 match ban and Locky will be rested.

Im interested in how the Kangaroos line up will look like against Wales....

Now Farah has come back to the aid of his mother who was diagnosed with cancer.

1. Boyd
2. Uate
3. Inglis
4. Lawrence
5. JYY
6. Thurston
7. DCE
8. Galloway
9. Smith
10. Gallen/M Scott
11. Watmough
12. Thaiday
13. Parker

14. Cronk
15. Shillington
16. B Scott
17. Lewis

Thats the team i think that will get the go. Only Tonga & Morris wont get a spot, 1 of Gallen/Scott to be rested imo. very thin on players but with 2 games left they should be sweet.

Wonder if that's what's to come for QLD, Cronk in the 6 with JT retaining the 7. Can not believe after the season Josh Morris had he's good enough for a Kangaroos jersey. AUS 50+

I heard JT was pretty keen to jump into the 6 jersey and naturally Cronk would fill the 7

England too good for NZ, they won 28-6. Sam Tomkins = deadset gun.

Australia v England in the final.

NZ were diabolical the whole tournament and never looked likely to win again Australia or England and were horrendous in the Test match prior to the Four Nations also.

Kieran Foran was a complete myth the whole tournament; Barely noticed him.

Surely the effort has a whole will put players and Kearney on notice. and Parramatta have got a complete dud of a coach, Sandow won't be able to steer them to the 8.

I like Foran on the edge, maybe his international career will be at centre? Benji will stay at 6 IMO. It will be like the Boyd situation, play 1 position in the NRL and another in rep footy.

1. Hoffman/Locke
2. Nightingale
3. Foran
4. SKD
5. Vatuvei
6. Marshall
7. Johnson
8. Blair
9. Luke
10. Sam Rapira
11. Mannering
12. Glenn
13. Smith

14. Fien
15. Matulino
16. Eastwood
17. Manu

Terrible performance by the boys this morning. The referee was appalling aswell, would have thought Checcin was a English ref with they way he was referring. Foran was absolute rubbish this morning and throughout the entire tournament, he better watch out as a man called Johnson is just behind him. Marshall hasn't lead from the front either and his kicking game has been worst than I have ever seen it. Really missed some go forward too, the likes of Rapira and Asotasi missing did not help that at all. Congrats to England, its good for League!

I'd personally go with this side.

1. Josh Hoffman
2. Jason Nightingale
3. Shaun Kenny-Dowall
4. Kieran Foran
5. Kevin Locke
6. Benji Marshall
7. Thomas Leuluai
8. Roy Asotasi
9. Issac Luke
10. Adam Blair
11. Sika Manu
12. Simon Mannering
13. Jeremy Smith

14. Shaun Johnson
15. Sam Rapira
16. Fui Fui Moi Moi
17. Jared Waera-Hargreaves

Johnson would move to 7 with Leuluai switching to Hooker; Issac to be utilised as a backrower at some stage.

Was formally never a fan of playing Foran out of position because of his form in the NRL but I don't know if he is the right man for the job to partner Benji at this time.

Leuluai can direct and organise if he is needed upon and I think NZ lacks the kicking game.

Australia won 56-14 a little while ago; Wales came racing out of the blocks and led 8-0 with two unconverted tries after 15 minutes but as the game went on Australia started to get the momentum and Wales kept it to 18-8 at the break but it was 38-6 in the 2nd half as Australia really ran away with it particularly after 60 minutes.

Looking forward to the test match early tomorrow morning. Going to be a good way to see Darren Lockyer say goodbye. Thinking that Australia should be too classy but you never know, England with a big crowd in support for them and what I saw of England against us last week was some impressive football. Wouldn't mind seeing England win to be honest, if they win though it will be because Rangi Chase played well, he could easily decide the game. If he's not playing well at the start then bring Widdop on. Last League match of 2011!

Wouldn't be surprised to see England win tomorrow morning, but I think we'll win and comfortably, 32-10, Locky getting his last win.
