What pisses me off: The fact that the Australian coach always seems to get the players HE wants (being from the NRL club he coaches)
The Broncos are the most represented club in the Australian tour squad to play in the Tri-Nations tournament against England and New Zealand. Funny that.
The Brisbane coach, Wayne Bennett is now the Australian coach.
Tonie Carroll, who has played for New Zealand in the past, is now playing for Australia. Not only is that wrong, but he is CRAP! Also, Berrigan was included, which I think is wrong as well..
Here’s the squad. You make up your mind.
Anthony Minichiello (Roosters), Matt Bowen (Cowboys), Luke Rooney (Panthers), Matt Sing (Cowboys), Shaun Berrigan (Broncos), Tonie Carroll (Broncos), Matt Cooper (Dragons), Brent Tate (Broncos), Willie Tonga (Bulldogs), Daren Lockyer (Broncos) (c), Scott Hill (Storm), Craig Gower (Panthers), Brett Kimmorley (Sharks), Petero Civoniceva (Broncos), Mark O’Meley (Bulldogs), Jason Ryles (Dragons), Shane Webcke (Broncos), Danny Buderus (Knights) (v/c), Craig Wing (Roosters), Michael Crocker (Roosters), Craig Fitzgibbon (Roosters), Nathan Hindmarsh (Eels), Willie Mason (Bulldogs), Andrew Ryan (Bulldogs) and Ben Kennedy (Knights).
Also, the Junior Kangaroos squad has been announced, with a couple of Eels (and ex-Eels) included.
Brett Stewart (Sea Eagles); David Milne (Raiders), Cameron Phelps (Bulldogs), Jamie Frizzo (Bulldogs), Joel Reddy (Eels); Feleti Mateo (Eels), Todd Carney (Raiders); Ben Creagh (Dragons), Reece Williams (Sharks), Nate Myles (Bulldogs), Tom Leroyd (Broncos), Heath L’Estrange (Roosters), Sam Thaiday (Broncos). Subs: Keith Galloway (Sharks), Dane Tilse (Knights), Mickey Paea (Roosters) and Berrick Barnes (Broncos).
