From that selection and from what I saw in the U19's (+ a couple of picks on reputation) I think the strongest XV would look something like:

1. Clark
2. Pearce / Bowron
3. Bloomfield
4. Shaw
5. Maiva / Hicks
6. Halaholo / Slack-Smith
7. Baker
8. Talataina
9. Wilson
10. Bowen / McLaughlin-Phillips / Gordon
11. McGloin
12 .Annan / Worthington
13. Ropata
14. Palmer / Aubrey
15. Jorgenson

10 with Vic Rugby/Rebels connection is truly awesome. I don't know how many are genuine Vic products, outside the obvious ones who aren't. Can somebody shed any light?

Do we know exactly when and where this 20’s World Cup is being held?
My guess: it might get announced after the WR (World Rugby) meeting following the EOYT, alongside the annual player awards, etc.

Maybe Italy, after their 2020 hosting of the thing got canned last time ... but who really knows?

It looks like 6
With the other 4 being Queensland products that's a particularly heavy representation for the QLD schools/age grade system. Is that just the quality of the group, or has there been an increasing rate of attrition to NRL in NSW?

Funny considering how dominant the U19s and U16s are for NSW.

I was gonna ask if anyone else thinks there’s an over representation of Reds boys compared to that of tahs boys
Maybe, however (and I’m not sure if this is the case) perhaps some of those Tahs boys aren’t eligible for the junior wallabies next year and a portion of the Reds crop was a year younger.

I don’t think anyone in the professional era would in their right mind not pick who was best for their job security, etc.

Apparently Australia is about to host it, someone alluded to this on twitter recently, it was either the next one or the one after.

About time.
