Barba
Lo
Bill Tupou
Moon
Talanoa

Kelly
Miller

Fifita
Randall
Pauli Paul
Horo
Minichiello
Arona

B Roberts
BMM
Moors
Cuthbertson

And it's still more sensible than some on here

Looks like there's been 3 entries with club bias going:
Catalan - 3
Hull - 5
Wakefield- 7 (all starters)

:lol: why do people get so offended when players aren’t picked from their team? So embarrassing and childish, but then who would expect anything else from vastman?

It's mostly from that one club again with fans who have a big overinflated view on how good there players are. For those of us who win important things like SL titles it doesn't matter to us whether or not our players are picked in an Exiles team.

You seem to be making the mistake of thinking that all fans of our club thinks like he does which is simply not true.

I'll attempt something a little more sensible and a little less one eyed. Max 3 per team.

Barba
Mead
Moon
Sau
Talanoa
Kelly
Roberts
Fifita
Parcell
Millington
BBM
Manu
Cuthbertson

Moors
Ikahihifo
Bird
Randell

Randell has a bit to prove yet but I wanted a hooker on the bench and couldnt think of a better candidate.

Decent side though I reckon. People talk about declining quality of imports, and fair enough, theres no Jamie Lyon, Big Les or the likes in there, but there are still some quality players.

A few putting Moon at centre and whilst obviously he's spent most of his career there he was HB in 2017 and has now been awarded McGuire's number 6 shirt so doesn't look like he'll be back playing centre anytime soon. Obviously could fill in there if needs be but I'd always prefer to pick players who play week in week out in the position in question even for something like a Exiles team.

There is quite a dearth of quality centres tbf. Tuimavave may be a better option with Manu being left out to satisfy the 3 per club rule.

Of course it's not true why should it be. My opinions are my opinions I don't claim to represent anyone else. I certainly don't have Printers god complex that's for sure.

It's just a sad little Rhino trying to use the old divide and conquer trick. Not worth falling out over imo.

I'm not offended I'm amused hence my micky take list - you do understand the concept of irony? Perhaps not but then I wouldn't expect anything else from someone so obviously slow witted.
