Team talk - "look lads it's your job today to give the GB side the hardest match of their lives to help prepare them for the upcoming four nations, really get stuck into them and give them what for, remember your proud heritage as a rugby nation and show the crowd what NZ players are made of"

Team thinks - (I aren't risking getting injured for this crock of sh*t, still if I can go through the motions I'll at least pick my match fee up, If i'm gonna give it large for NZ it will be in a proper NZ shirt and none of us are given that)

Complete bolleaux, the vehicle for GB selection remains Superleague until France can improve considerably, and they won't do that being ignored for mickey mouse matches.

Your decision to ignore the estimable Patrick Richards in favour of one Scott Donald will rattle the Wigan cages and warm the hearts of the Leeds Rhinos, but it will not pass muster with the world's greatest team selectors. After all, Patrick Richards is a goal kicker of great note, whose record in this field exceeds that of Matthew Orford by a country mile, as they say in Australia.

Moreover your decision to play Brett Kearney at the expense of the in form Michael Monaghan is also one that will not only infuriate the Warrington fans, but one that will raise eyebrows in the selectors' committee room.

I do not believe that a match between a nation specific Barbarians team and England can be dismissed as a "Mickey Mouse match." The solidarity in a nation specific barbarians team, even if playing in a different shirt, will enable the Barbarians to perform at a very high level. This would be especially true if the match was played at a good venue (minimum 25,000 seater, e.g. DW, or Galpharm) rather than a Mickey Mouse Venue (e.g. Leigh) and if the match fee was handsome.

They are all eligible by virtue of birth or past residency. Most dual identity have already played for New Zealand.

the eligibilty laws are muddy enough with you introduction a NZ barbarians team featuring current tongan & samoan internationals...



at least a Other nationalities team is'nt nation specific,bares not relevance towards international tournaments such at the 4 nations & world cup and would feature players who by virtue of being in super league don't get a look in for the Anzac test & state of origin,NSW would have killed for buderus,o'meley,fitzgibbon & matt king in the series just played,dallas jonhson would have been in the QLD team...the kiwii team for the Anzac test would have had webb,
Leuluai and fa'alongo

scrap the magic weekend and we could have a 2 game series against the Other nationalities..and still play the french or welsh after the grand final..
