OK Kiwis - who do you think will be in the NZ Maori squad this year?

Without fully knowing who's eligible, my picks would be:
(* indicates uncertain eligibility)
1. Clint Newland
2. Hika Elliot
3. Jacob Ellison
4.
5. Kurtis Haiu*
6. Karl Lowe*
7. Scott Waldrom
8. Liam Messam
9. Piri Weepu (c)
10. Stephen Brett
11. Kade Poki
12. Callum Bruce
13. Rene Ranger
14. Sean Maitland
15. Israel Dagg*

I'm sure I'm ommitting a few people without realising and the Maori selections have often have curveballs thrown into them with players selected you wouldn't have had a clue they were even the slightest bit Maori *coughPaulTitocoughChristianCullencough* Smile Haiu is the only lock I can immediately think of with potential Maori genealogy - but I'm sure plenty of them are options. I know that the Waldrom brothers have Maori as they were in the squad in '08 but pretty sure Thomas is heading offshore immediately after the S14 season, else I'd have him at 8 with Messam at 6. Lowe I have a feeling is eligible and would love to see him in tandem with Waldrom again. Latimer would also be an option if he doesn't go to the ABs.

Wonder what Daniel Braids chances are in sneaking in there? he's been there before.

Think Isaac Ross would have some Maori in him, although he's shit.

I will be attending the NZ Maoris V England in Napier in a few weeks, looking forward to it.

Don't think Braid will be eligible, same rules as for ABs...
