PRESS RELEASE

Kiwis Starting Team Announced

Cairns, Australia, October 9, 2012 – Three players will make their Kiwi debuts this Saturday night in Townsville after Stephen Kearney today confirmed the 17 that will take the field against the Kangaroos.

The new faces are the Bulldogs prop Sam Kasiano, the Sea Eagles centre Dean Whare and the Storm second-rower Kevin Proctor. Proctor has toured with the Kiwis before but has not yet taken the field.

The starting forward pack features four players from the NRL Grand Final, with two guys from both the Bulldogs (Kasiano and Frank Pritchard) and the Storm (Jesse Bromwich and Proctor). They’re joined by Issac Luke and Simon Mannering.

The side is again captained by Benji Marshall, who is partnered in the halves with Kieran Foran. Sam McKendry is 18th man.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf.
