We are only two weeks away from the important World Club Championship match between the Sydney Roosters and the Wigan Warriors.

Unfortunately from the point of view of British fans seeing the NRL champions at their best, superstar centre Latrell Mitchell has pulled out of the team in order to play for the Indigenous All Stars against the Maori All Stars that same weekend.

Interestingly Joseph Manu, who is Mitchell's centre partner, has chosen to play in the WCC over playing for the Maori team.

I am not sure who will replace Mitchell. It certainly won't be anyone near his talent level.

Interesting, from a frenchman's point of view that is :roll:

And that will affect you how exactly, will you be having a stopover in Carcassonne whilst jet setting from Bangkok to Brisbane and all the other places too numerous to mention.

The Sydney Roosters say that they have traveled to the UK in order to win. They will not only train with terrific Toulouse Olympique in Paris, but also with the superb St Helens Saints in Britain.

Sydney Roosters super star Luke Keary is in doubt for the WCC. If he doesn't play he will be replaced by Lachlan Lam, the son of the Wigan coach.

Keary has been cleared to play. Doubt on Angus Crichton currently.
