Injured foursome in Aussie league squad

AAP Mon, 06 Sep 2010 14:40:01
Injured rugby league stars Greg Inglis, Darren Lockyer, Johnathan
Thurston and Josh Morris were all named in Australia's Four Nations
train-on squad announced on Monday.

Thurston (foot) and Lockyer (ribs) will have to prove their fitness by
Wednesday for the end-of-season tournament, but Inglis and Morris have
already ruled themselves out to have surgery on injured shoulders.

Eighteen players from the eight eliminated NRL teams form the squad to
assemble at Redford Oval on Wednesday with others to be added as further
teams are eliminated.

Melbourne and Canterbury were most represented in the initial
announcement, both contributing four players including Melbourne's star
quartet Cooper Cronk, Inglis, Billy Slater and Cameron Smith.

After missing the finals for the first time since 1991, Brisbane added
just two players to the squad, with powerhouse back-rower Sam Thaiday
joining Lockyer.

Every team who failed to reach the finals managed to have a player in
the squad, with 15th-placed North Queensland offering Thurston, Matt
Scott and Willie Tonga, while Cronulla's Paul Gallen and Newcastle's
Kurt Gidley also earned a call-up.

Meanwhile, Brisbane's young guns have dominated the first announcement
of the Prime Minister's XIII train-on squad, with Jharal Yow Yeh, Andrew
McCullough and rookie of the year favourite Matt Gillett all gaining
selection alongside veteran Corey Parker.

Retiring halfback Brett Kimmorley could pick up the final representative
jersey of his career in the exhibition match with Papua New Guinea
after he was also named, while wing sensation Akuila Uate was rewarded
for a fantastic individual season for Newcastle.

KANGAROOS FOUR NATIONS train-on squad: Darren Lockyer, Sam Thaiday
(Broncos), Michael Ennis, Ben Hannant, Jamal Idris, Josh Morris
(Bulldogs), Paul Gallen (Sharks), Cooper Cronk, Greg Inglis, Billy
Slater, Cameron Smith (Storm), Kurt Gidley (Knights), Matt Scott,
Johnathan Thurston, Willie Tonga (Cowboys), Jarryd Hayne, Timana Tahu
(Eels), David Taylor (Rabbitohs)

PRIME MINISTER'S XIII train-on squad: Matt Gillett, Andrew McCullough,
Corey Parker, Jharal Yow Yeh (Broncos), Brett Kimmorley (Bulldogs), Luke
Douglas, Blake Ferguson, Kade Snowden (Sharks), Jarrod Mullen, Akuila
Uate (Knights), Tim Mannah, Ben Smith (Eels), Michael Crocker, Ben Lowe,
Nathan Merritt (Rabbitohs)
---------------------------------
Very happy for Ben Lowe, he deserves it.

Typical, NSW bends the rules when it needs to, they don't like it when Qld does something, but they don't think twice about doing it themselves.....

I don't think the top 8 sides are included in this untill they are knocks out of the finals.

There's good reasons why they aren't.

1. The PM's XVII is really only for emerging players, players which are likely to be in the squad already aren't added (which explains Morris and Jennings)

2. They aren't in the Aust squad yet because they won't be added until their NRL season is over

3. Being named in one squad or other doesn't preclude a player from playing in the other, or playing despite not being picked in either at this stage.

4. Gordon is definitely no certainty for the Aust squad and won't be added to the PM's team unless the Panthers are out of the finals by the time the game is played.

Not sure what Tonga's chances are of playing, not unless one of Lyon and Jennings picks up an injury, but both JT and Scott should be in the test team.

Agreed, doubt Tonga will get a look in, only if Lyon and Jennings are injured. But i reckon Australia will benefit with Tonga there (rather than Jennings-nothing against him though, great player) due to his already built combo with JT and the other QLD boys; Australia should work of that, rather then tying to create new ones in a short period of time.

Oh, i forgot about Boyd. He should have been included over Tahu. I'm still amazed to how he's in the squad.

Only players out of the Top 8 so far are selected. Once teams are eliminated, any players from those squads will be named
