Gah. Sorry mate, I'm on call at the moment and had a busy night last night, will grab it when I get home for you. It's from last year so a little out of date (it doesn't feature players like Kevin Locke or Shaun Johnson) but it's quite interesting.
So many genuine NRL stars cOuld be a part if this. SBW Benji Blair MANU etc etc. I wonder if this idea came off it could be the catalyst for the ARL to change its Origin rules specifically to pwn the kiwi SoO before it gets out of hand. Wouldnt put it past them...$$$ obv
Jim Doyle apparently went on radio and suggested these as the teams for some version of NZ SoO:
AUCKLAND: Kevin Locke; Jason Nightingale, Shaun Kenny-Dowall, Simon Mannering, Sam Perrett; Benji Marshall, Shaun Johnson; Sam McKendry, Issac Luke, Sam Rapira, Lewis Brown, Adam Blair, Jeremy Smith. Int: Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, Russell Packer, Ben Matulino, Sika Manu.
HEARTLAND: Josh Hoffman; Matt Duffie, Steve Matai, Jerome Ropati, Manu Vatuvei; Kieran Foran, Nathan Fien, Fuifui Moimoi, Alehana Mara, Roy Asotasi, Greg Eastwood, Frank Pritchard, Bronson Harrison. Int: Frank-Paul Nuuausala, Alex Glenn, Kevin Proctor, Gerard Beale.
Seems like he just randomly aassigned names to 2 teams. Isn't Mannering from Wellington? Isn't Lewis Brown from Christchurch?
