Radike to be honest. He was excellent in the first match v the Rising, missed the 2nd and then was off pretty early in the 3rd, but he's suprised me. Jack Cornelson looks good too, played 8 in that 2nd Rising game.

Like the look of Mark Baldwin for the Eagles.

Team Rehab Selectors have tapped Izaia PERESE on the shoulder. He will have to withdraw from contention for the NRC Barbarians tour.

Following last week’s match in Toowoomba, Country have lost Chris Feauai-Sautia (shoulder) and Scott Gale (Knee) for the remainder of the NRC, as well as young-flyer Izaia Perese, who suffered a significant knee-injury which is likely to keep him sidelined for up to eight-months.

Seeing Alex Northan, Rays Winger, against BRC on Thursday reminded me what missing on our wings for wallabies which is the shane Williams genuine speedster with those sparkling feet. He made three electrifying breaks beating many players with 2 leading to tries and can't recall if third break led to a try and maybe even was three.

He is a definite for the baa baa's after that game and one now looking to watch out as it was just pure magic to watch each of those 3 big breaks and runs he made.....

Dean Oakman-Hunt NO.6 UC Vikings, has been coming off the bench for Jordan Smiler who is moving into the Row for Rory Arnold. Started at 6 for Round 4 against Rising in Perth. Had a good game

I've only watched the QC (Quade Cooper) and BNE games, but for mine the (eligible) standouts from each team so far are
Queensland Country
1. Hirsmaki
4. Phil Potgieter
7. Connor Mitchell
11. Izaiah Perese (gone for season)

Brisbane City
4. Ben Hyne
12. Henry Taefu (also kicks goals)
11. Alex Gibbon

Not on the Junior Laloifi band wagon?

I agree with those names. Like Jack Cornelson (QC (Quade Cooper)) from Country too.

Yeah look I like Junior but unlike most NRC viewers I've seen him at club level heaps of times and watching him for Brisbane I just see the same things that occasionally let him down at Sunnybank I.e poor kicking, poor tackling technique, running away from support on occasion. The kind of stuff that only gets noticed after a while, and might be missed initially by the casual NRC viewer who is getting a look at his attacking sparkle for the first time.

There is a reason he didn't always play 15 for Sunnybank, wouldn't be in the top 4-5 15's in QPR this year I'd say but he is a great weapon off the bench at the end of games.

Jack Cornelson (son of Greg) is a hell of an athlete. I'm amazed 7's hasn't grabbed him yet

^^^Good call. Missed that. It's not a "full contract" but on my self imposed rules, he's gooooone.

Mitchell Short was nominated by the match reviewer in a forum post.
Sorry Reg only just saw this. Yeah I should have put in Mitch Short

OP edited to remove Tupou, adding Short.

waiting to see francis fainifo get some more chances for the vikings. Would be a cheap but solid cover for the Tahs or Force as the brumbies still have dargaville, coleman, tualii or whoever that big 7s winger is, Toua and Tomane out the back.

Has Tom Robertson not been named in a team of the week yet? I've thought he's been absolutely fabulous at tighthead for the Stars.

Agree Tom Robertson at prop been a consistent performer - probably pulling for a place amongst props named for heartland squad....

without knowing how many they will take, but assuming it's just a tad over a playing squad, my attempt at a touring team would be:

15 Tom Kingston (Stars)
14 Junior Laloifi (Brisbane C)
13 Maalonga Konelio (Spirit)
12 Lloyd Johansson (Rising)
11 Harry Jones (Stars)
10 David Horwitz (Eagles)
9 Josh Holmes (Rays)
8 Boyd Killingworth (Rays)
7 David Hickey (not sure what his injury is?) (Stars)
6 Richard Hardwick (Spirit)
5 Matt Phillip (Stars)
4 Ben Hyne (Brisbane C)
3 Jermaine Ainsley (Spirit)
2 Robbie Abel (Vikings)
1 Haydn Hirsimaki (QLD Country)

16 Luke Holmes (Rays)
17 Tom Robertson (Stars)
18 Jed Gillespie (Rams)
19 Corey Thomas (Brisbane C)
20 Conor Mitchell (QLD Country)
21 Dewet Roos (Rams)
22 Sam Lane (Rays)
23 Michael McDougall (Rams)

24 Jerome McKenzie (Eagles)
25 Radike Samo (QLD Country)

With Hickey and Josh Holmes the skippers

I'd not object to any of them playing for the Bahbahs, but wouldn't Samo, Gillespie, Horwitz and Kingston be ineligible given they had Super Contracts this season?

Would "Expect" the Super sides to have a little bit of pull and someone like Hodge may end up in the squad despite perhaps not having the best of NRC form.

I think the team's eligibility will be pretty loose, but I suspect contracts next year will be more significant than contracts this year, particularly as I suspect teams wouldn't want contracted players going away to play in their pre-season or off-season.
