Figured I'd make a dedicated thread for picking the teams, rather than clogging up the main World Cup thread which can be used to talk about other games/topics going on across the tournament.. Also I miss picking the teams during the NRL season lol
8. Leota (someone likened Bromwich to Sam Cane the other day and I couldn't agree more)
12. Nikora (offers more strike than K Brom.. also K Brom may not want to line up against Mitch Moses anytime soon lol)
17. Niukore (more versatile than K Brom or JWH)
First pool game v a weaker side.. Id give the players who missed the Rhinos game a run.. then the next pool games work on the combos leading into the knockout stages..
So it should mean about 10 or so changes... the line up should look close to the side v Tonga earlier this year..
