Turner has had loose cartilage taken out of his ankle and will be out for five weeks.
I'd like to see Taps at 12, Ant at 13 and CFS at 11 with Davies at 14. Lucas was good at 15 and should stay there and Ant is the defensive linchpin.
Let's go REDS!
Big loss for the Bunnies if it is confirmed (still framed as ":reports" for now).
He would be a gun 8 or 6, but can't seem him adapting to 12 in.
I'd say fares are heavily discounted thanks to the 'Qantas' Wallabies.
Wing cover is AAC/Folau
Reds site has Wallabies named as:
1. James Slipper (Queensland Reds - 48 caps)
2. Stephen Moore (ACT Brumbies - 90 caps)
3. Sekope Kepu (NSW.
Wallabies running out with BLK on their shirts. This the first time?
Big call from Link. Toomua at 12, Honey Badger at 11 and Fardy back at 6.
C'mon Big Kev, time to fire up!
Players ineligible for selection for #SpringTour2013, due to injury: Beale, A.Fainga'a, Goodwin, Hanson, Higginbotham, McCabe, McMeniman EDIT Also.
Rocky Elsom got penalised for doing it a few years back, against Samoa or Fiji?

and congrats to Mowen and AAC
From ARU Twitter:
Slipper, Moore, Alexander, Simmons, Douglas, Fardy, Hooper, Mowen (c)
White, Cooper, Cummins, Leali’ifano, Ashley-Cooper (vc),.
As in Schatz has NOT been picked ahead of McCalman.
McCalman is on the bench, and I'd say he's picked ahead of Dennis as he covers 6, 7 and 8.
Georgina Robinson just tweeted he's out confirmed.
TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: FWD – Slipper, Moore, Kepu, Simmons, Horwill, Fardy, Hooper, Mowen
BACKS – Genia, Cooper, O’Connor, Leali’ifano, Ashley-Cooper,.
Replaced by Steven Luatua. Haven't seen him play much, what's he like?
Agree, for me best balanced back-row out of those available is:
I have been loathe to bring it up in the past but with Higgers, Timani, Palu and TPN all out or semi-injured we are lacking severely in the.
Horwill, Genia back. Lance at 12, CFS on wing. Interesting.
Reds Team: Holmes, S.Faingaa, Slipper, Simmons, Horwill, Quirk, Gill, Schatz, Genia,.
Separate names with a comma.
