    JJ, you have a huge block on your shoulder wearing you down mate .you might need Thor's hammer to knock it off.
    A FACT of footy : Just because you were a star of the U/18's doesnt mean you are entitled to higher honours.
    Just to give you an example.again .
    1. Will Eadie a star for Aust schoolboys. Currently playing 1st grade for Qld Uni didnt get picked, defense perhaps.but would be an awesome 7's player imo.
    2. Leni Ikitau Dint make schoolboys but started and starred for Vikings in NRC finals last year against Qld country.
    3. Patrick Tafa didnt make schoolboys 2016 but started a few games for the National champions Qld U/20's last year. .really challenging ASY(current REDS player) for the #8 spot.
    Time to put your schoolboy hat in the bygone draw and perhaps pick up or go and buy a National Jnr Wallabies hat. These boys are not playing politics but appreciating the honour .so stop whinging and talk about how we are going to win the and gain some much needed experience before JWC :)

    Cheers GOIII, great work

    Jnr AB's look ominous with every raid throughout their opening game, resulting in the merciless slaughtering of Tonga. I thought the Jnr Wallabies started off extremely well and set the platform for another huge score against Fiji. Apart from the fact some of the boys didnt get down til Wednesday(eg. T McDermott,), I think its a good start, and it looks great with set pieces esp the lineout options.Nice to have some tall timber winning lineouts at will. We could do with less aimless kicking from #10 when their were better options to run the ball. Well done lads :) !! great start.

    Yep, jittery. Wasn't great.

    Only watched the fist half and a bit.

    Thought they went OK.

    Fiji struggled at set piece.

    Only went to it for last 5 minutes: the aimless kick which went out on the full to end the game seemed to reflect someone’s comment about the game generally.

    I thought Lucas was pretty good.

    There were quite a few kicks in behind, and that must have been a tactic to keep someone out of the defensive line.

    13 was a standout. Ramm and McTaggart also good.

    One of the locks Hosea I think? Also very involved.

    Aus set piece, very good.

    In my opinion #10 Lawson Creighton had an outstanding kicking game. He showed respect to the Fiji defence and played for field position appropriately. This will hold them in good stead when they play the NZ. Massive boot too. Yes, the last cross field kick didn’t come off but that was clearly a last play roll of the dice when the team is up by 50 points

    To Ben Whitaker ARU
    How did Phoenix Hunt, an 18 year old Nudgee college QLD boy in 2017 get the call up for the U20s National side.
    1. Only 6 months ago he was picked as the 4th best halfback in the 2017 National schoolboys behind Seamus Smith ACT (starting half back Australian schoolboys), Marco Bell NSW (reserve Australian schoolboys halfback) and Dylan Dowling NSW (starting halfback Australian Barbarians)
    Phoenix Hunt was reserve half back for Australian Barbarians.

    2. With no 20s tournament this year how has he managed to leapfrog these boys into a National U 20s team where he now has the reputation as the incumbent for next year having played in the team already.

    3. What about the 2016 halfbacks in other states programs. Were they even considered?
    This is another blatant example of the U20s Qld coach picking, unchecked, his own players above other states.

    4. There is no transparency in these National selections, no opportunity for comparison which has left the selection process a joke to be hijacked by Qld.

    Ben Whittaker, you are in charge of the U20s ARU program.
    There should be a system in place where a selection panel is chosen with a representative from each state – (the coaches of the U20s programs)? These coaches know and can push for their own boys so that we get a balanced strong National side
    Seems a pretty simple answer??????

    If Gilmore has indeed selected a poor squad and does so for the U20 World Cup he'll pay for it in his results and won't last long in the job.

    His prerogative as coach is that he gets to select his players. I don't for a second believe that a selection committee of the state coaches will come up with a better result. Coaches will largely push for their own players and will it end up with a better team? What are they basing their judgement on?

    This is a transition year where we don't have the Super 20s but are moving to the NRC 19s at the end of the year which will hopefully give a better guide to which players should be involved in a better time frame for preparing for the Under 20 World Cup.

    Was Suttor injured before this and added to the squad? Haven't seen him on any Uni team sheet for a while so I presume he was.
