Whatever happens tonight in Newcastle - and the Australians
are hot favourites - one thing is for sure. The tide has
turned in transtasman league - and it ain't going back.
Now that he's offered to do his bit, Anthony Watmough is
confident Parramatta's defiant board will also step aside for
the Eels' sake.
Skipper Cameron Smith has nominated Jason Taumalolo as the
player the Kangaroos need to stop if they are to break a
three-match losing streak against the Kiwis.
It's nothing new for Shaun
Johnson to come into an Anzac test under pressure. It's been
that way every year since his Kiwis debut in 2012, usually
because the match comes in the middle of a spluttering season
start for the Warriors.
