    SPIRIT PLAYERS NAMED TO FACE BRUMBIES

    Can we claim Hilterbrand as well - he was the first ranga in the setup wasn't he?

    Bearing in mind the large number of Spirit players in the actual Force squad, this is not a bad representation from the west for non contracted players.

    Recognition for a job well done last year.

    The Rays sat third on the ladder and were knocked out in their first semi-final, the Rams came 3rd last and yet they make up the majority of the team.

    Still, well done to the Perth blokes who made the team. Another one to put on the resume.

    I am not sure of it, but would be fairly sure that contracted players were not available for selection.

    Wests Scarborough 1st Grade juggernaut has played finals rugby each and every year since its inception and continues this remarkable feat yet again this season and unbelievably it's still rolling on.

    The 7 is Hadleigh May from Otago who played for Cott, he also took Joondalup's centre Maloonga Konelio. Just another dog act that seems to be the norm in the Wild West.

    its an invitational team based on availability. Not a representative team.

    Elwee must have more photos of guys in compromising positions with animals than anyone I know. How the f does he get away with it?

    Don't people do their homework on these characters anymore? Or did GPS work him out in the first 5 minutes and he had to flee the country.

    May be he's coaching Wykes in Japan; ie how not to cough the ball up every time he goes into contact.

    PS if anyone has access to his photo collection it would be rude not to share.
