    Is that for real?

    Fark me that is a disgrace. The extreme left have truly taken control of the nation. I totally support the indigenous player's stance on the anthem but to ban it is pure madness. We are living in Orwell's 1984.

      Can he play SOO?
      Tonga is second tier and he hasn't played for another 1st tier national - Tamo plays for Tonga as well but is not eligible for SOO as he played for NZ - A First tier nation.

      Any player that has played for any 1st tier nation other than Australia is not eligible to play SOO - Players that play for a second tier nation can also play for a 1st tier nation if they meet the criteria - Tamo plays for Tonga but could also play for NZ same for SST.

      That was the argument Gould/Fittler/Johns has that players should be eligible to play SOO even if they have represented different countries- goes back to SBW as Gould was wanting him to be able to play SOO for NSW Saying he played all his rep footy as a junior for NSW but because he played for NZ he wasn't eligible and that shouldn't be the case.

      I suppose it goes down to if SOO is deemed as a trial for Australia Roos selection later on- some say no some say yes

        They should have an Indigenous national Anthem as after all it was and always will be Aboriginal land - Flag is next the colonial times are behind us time to move on - the black/yellow and red flag is the one and a new Anthem too or re-write the current one. Changing names of sites and towns also needs to be considered - Ayers Rock is now Uluru -Fraser Island name should have been changed long ago - it is a disgrace that it is still called this

        "For we are young and free" should be re-written as "for we are one and free for instance

        Fraser Island Aborigines gained international notoriety through the stories of Eliza Fraser who survived the ship wreck �Stirling Castle� in 1836 with some others. Survivors were fed by the Aborigines and assisted back towards Brisbane and civilization. Eliza told stories of Aboriginal cruelty, savagery and brutality. She made much money by such tales but, although the truth of her stories has been refuted by many, they had the effect of creating a paranoia of Aborigines amongst the white settlers. One of Eliza Fraser�s legacies was that there would be many massacres of the very people who had helped her.

          I basically agree with you but banning the national anthem completely is madness. I guess it is to avoid the issue of players taking a knee. People were outraged towards the indigenous players last year. This year people are going to lose their shit over this.

              I'm a PVL fan up to now, but it looked like he was caving to the identity politic loonies. How disappointment.

              I guess he got it right eventually?

                Sorry but even with the racial diversity in my family , Indigenous , German , Asian and English this is over the top , Anthem for sure , flag if its suited to the whole country not just Indigenous but towns and names for Christ sake move on and get over it.

                  Why do they sing the anthem anyway?

                        You pick players based on form and grant was the form hooker of the comp but anyway hes been named so either way happy for Jake! I hope he kills it.

                              If i might queitly add that is a strange bench. Walker to replace who? Keary? Only 1 Prop on the bench.. i thought Yeo deserved a shot there hes a beast of a player.
