    ^ AAP article reprinted on stuff says 11:30 which I assume would be Aus time: if it's NZ time then 12:30 Aus as I think we're both on Faded Curtain Time now so still a two-hour diff?

    4. Salakaia-Loto
    5. Philip
    6. Hanigan
    7. Hooper
    8. Wilson
    9. White
    10. JOC
    11. Koroibete
    12. Simone
    13. Petaia
    14. Daugunu
    15. DHP

    16. Uelese 17. Sio 18. Tupou 19. Simmons 20. Samu 21. Gordon 22. Lolesio 23. Paisami

    Naisarani no chance of jersey 20?

    Surely Hodge would be 23 over Paisami

    Seems pretty unlikely that a guy brought into the squad a few days ago is going to get picked in my view.


    Yeah, you're probably right.

    stuff.co.nz reporting AB due out at 1:30 NZT & Wobs "later today" so KiwiM's 2:30 NZT may be on the money.

    They look better with a proper 8.

    If it were me, the only change I would make would be Laumape to 12, Goodhue to 13 and ALB to the bench, but yes, a very strong side.

    Wow! JOC, Banks, Gordon and Wright dropped.

    Lolesio, Simone, McReight and McDermott all set to debut.

    Edit: JOC is out with a knee injury.

    I’m still not sure about JBar on the wing, his defensive positioning seems a bit off, almost all the Wallaby breaks have come down his wing. Should be space for Petaia in that channel.

    Sotutu starting?

    Laumape on the bench? EDIT: With a guaranteed debutant to charge at?

    Just give me Akira at blindside and I can go full Vince McMahon.

    I can understand the 9/10/12 strategy but not that JOC is gone completely

    Hodge is the backup 10 by the looks of that too. Very weird
