Italy by 14 - buoyed on by their recent success against England, with feet firmly on the ground thanks to Minichello.

A team of NRL players against some part timers and average players

Iestyn has taken a big risk by leaving out Massam and Roetsy, two outside backs. With only 7 backs in this squad, 3 are halves, 1 is a former second row adapting to the centres.

Team I'd go with?

1. Rhys Evans
2. Rhys Williams
3. Rhodri Lloyd
4. (Nobody really fits in here)
5. Elliot Kear
6. Ian Webster
7. Matt Seamark
8. Jordan James

I'd be amazed if Ben Evans isn't in the 17 mate?

Much as I admire North Wales Crusaders and what they have achieved, Christian Roets and Rob Massam have been playing in the Championship 1.
Too big a step up for Saturday. They may well feature in the next rounds.

Frizell at centre, with Evans in the second row.

C'mon Wales!
PROUD TO BE A MEMBER OF http://www.rugbyleaguecares.org/ and http://www.walesrugb...-wales-for-2013
Predictions for the future -
Crusaders RL to get a franchise for 2012 onwards -WRONG
Widnes Vikings also to get a franchise - RIGHT
Crusaders RL to do the double over Widnes and finish five places ahead of them -WRONG
Widnes Vikings NOT to dominate rugby league in years to come! STILL TO COME

I promise to pay �10 to the charity of Bomb Jacks choice if Widnes Millionaires finish above the battling underdogs Crusaders RL. I OWE A TENNER!

Gee, I obviously knew Mini is the Italian captain but it was still a bit of a shock (a very pleasant one) to see him there in blue. Very exciting to see a player of his calibre.

Can't lie though, I'm most excited to watch my boy, Paul Vaughn.

EDIT: Great passion for the anthem here by Wales.

Some people may criticise (no seriously, they might) but how often are we going to see Wales playing in front of a crowd like this?

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan
