Aussie League Team

Australia play New Zealand this Friday night in the annual ANZAC weekend clash. As always, the team for this match is looking dodgy as. Most of the reason for this is injury, but also, some of the players that have been picked just don't seem to be world-class to me. Here's the team, and my comments: Anthony Minichiello (Sydney Roosters) - Solid Fullback, but does have a tendency to have bad games. Timana Tahu (Newcastle) - A good pick! Glad that he can partner Gidley in the best centre/wing combo there is Matt Gidley (Newcastle) - Best Center in the world, (now that Lyon has stopped playing) and will be powerful Brent Tate (Brisbane) - Only in the team because Lyon isn't. I hope he performs, but I have my doubts. Michael De Vere (Brisbane) - Only in the team for his goal-kicking, and because Bennett is coach. Not happy. Darren Lockyer (capt, Brisbane) - First time at 5/8th for Australia. HUGE test for him. But can't knock him as a great player. Craig Gower (Penrith) - So glad he got in ahead of Kimmorley. But not sure how he'll combine with Lockyer. Look for great individual performance. Shaun Timmins (St George-Illawarra) - Bit sad that Timmins is the best Lock we have running around.. Nathan Hindmarsh (Parramatta) - Probably lucky to be selected, but for me he would have been in the first 3 picked. In sensation form. Steve Price (Bulldogs) - replaces Civoniciva. Very solid player. Good pick. Joel Clinton (Penrith) - Good young forward with a lot to prove. Hope his defence holds up against the big Kiwis Danny Buderus (Newcastle) - First picked. Best hooker in the world. Will rip them apart at the ruck. Shane Webcke (Brisbane) - Veteran Prop who usually has big rep games. Pity he whinges too much Interchange: Shaun Berrigan (Brisbane) - This is just ridiculous. Only in the team because of Bennett, and hopefully out just as quick. Smash him Kiwis Michael Crocker (Sydney Roosters) - Another interesting pick, but did tour with the Kangaroos last year. But he won't do much Trent Waterhouse (Penrith) - Look for him to replace Webcke and have a blinder. Being, he'll be blind and drop lots of ball Luke Bailey (St George Illawarra) - Young, but experienced. He'll have to go head high to bring down some Kiwis. He'll get 4 weeks. ----------------------- There we go. We'll still win 48-0 with any team, but I just don't know what they are thinking sometimes, those selectors.
