You're pretty much on the money IS but I would add their will be some gratification for the players as well.
I think the city/country result suggests the selectors got it wrong and hope the performance of west Sydney puts it beyond doubt.
Perhaps with a bit of egg on their faces the selectors might look a bit closer at actual performance in future.
But presumably there will be significant regime change given the end of certain parents involvement with club at the end of this season and no doubt the next lot will be seeking to influence selections.
