Josh and Zak are big buddies off the field and Watkins and Hall are clubmates and I feel it is important to have centre/wing combinations that know each other to get the best from them. I think it is also important to have genuine half-backs choosing between Chase and Burrow and either could be used to spell off Roby. I don't think O'Loughlin is fit enough yet to play the Aussies.

I like this team except I'd opt for Burrow over Chase.

I'd start Hill and bring on Gurgess as an impact player. I'd also put Ablett on the bench as utility cover for 3/4's and second row. 3 impact forwards on the bench and a utility. Sinfield and Burrow can cover dummy half if Roby needed a rest or got injured.
