I’m pleased with the selection. Either you are meeting the fitness standards or are not in the top 16. I like that NT will be working with the wider squad so possibly some interchangeability later on.
Plenty of healthy competition for WA and C position in the top 12. Kersten may be a surprise for some people but for me she ticks enough boxes. She is fit, brings experience and has solid connections.
I see the team building around the spine of Ekenasio, Watson and Burger.
If they posed for the black dress photo, does this mean they knew before the final?
